The winning prize for the 22nd annual Father Charles Hudson Super Bowl Raffle, sponsored by Center for Hope Hospice and Palliative Care in Union County, was won by Tom Hoens and his wife, Karym Hawrylak-Hoens (pictured) of Westfield. In addition to a pair of tickets to Super Bowl LII, the Hoens received a flight voucher for travel and a three-night complimentary stay in a Minneapolis-area hotel. They gave the tickets to their son and son-in-law who were able to see the Philadelphia Eagles make football history with their first-ever Super Bowl win. With Kawrylak-Hoens is Frank Brady, President of Center for Hope. The second and third prizes — a 60-inch LED smart TV and a $500 VISA gift card — were won by Theresa Copeland of Manville and Carol Scalici from Staten Island, respectively.

All proceeds from the sale of Super Bowl Raffle tickets support the Center’s Charitable Care Program, which provides nearly $3 million a year in free or reduced-cost residential hospice care at Father Hudson House in Elizabeth; the Center also offers residential hospice care and assisted living at Peggy’s House in Scotch Plains, and provides hospice care in the community for terminally ill patients in Union County and surrounding areas.
