Violette Malek of Baton Rouge, La. was the second prize winner, claiming a brand new, 2015 Buick Encore valued at over $25,000 donated by Capitol Buick GMC.

Proceeds from ticket sales benefit Woman’s programs and services that improve the health of women and infants in the community, such as Woman’s Newborn and Infant Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Mammography Coach.

As a Level III Regional Referral Center, Woman’s NICU provides the smallest and sickest babies in the region with the advanced care they need. Private, single-family rooms were designed to feel like a baby’s nursery, where parents can privately bond with their baby just like they would at home. This private setting also allows parents to stay overnight with their baby in the days, weeks and even months ahead. Since construction nearly four years ago, Woman’s 72-bed NICU has experienced a continual and significant increase in admissions. Ticket sales will help fund the construction of additional NICU rooms.

Woman’s Mammography Coach visits churches, workplaces, grocery stores, community centers and more to offer lifesaving screenings to women in need. Despite serving 5,300 patients each year, the current coach cannot meet its demand. Ticket sales will help fund an additional coach to extend services to more than 10,000 women each year.
