“Well we have a drawing starting December 7th and there’s a drawing every day for actually 13 days. And there’s different prizes given away… We have 91 prizes, 91 winners, $13,000 in prizes this year. Our grand prize is $1,500 that will be given away on the last day and that’s through the generosity of Genesis Healthcare System.
