ARCH Hospice is pleased to announce that Lily Kangas has won the 50/50 Draw for August with ticket number B-6015250. Lily Kangas and Chuck Shannon were so excited when they received the call on Aug. 31.

Lily expressed, “We are so thankful, it was a wonderful surprise!” The couple purchases tickets every single month! This month, Lily purchased the day before the draw after coming across an advertisement. ARCH is so grateful for the ongoing support from our incredible community.

Lily is an artist/teacher and Chuck is a Senior Database Administrator. The two plan to put their winnings towards retirement, paying bills, and saving up for the future! “We love the compassionate care ARCH provides and we enjoy supporting the community,” shared Lily.

Congratulations, Lily! We wish you and Chuck all the best with your future plans.

Thank you to everyone who contributes each month – it means more than you know," shared Miranda Leonard, Marketing & Events Associate at ARCH.
