Polly Lemoine of St. Francisville, Louisiana, was selected as the winner of the $600,000 luxury condo raffled off to benefit the new freestanding Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in a drawing held Tuesday.

The condo is located in the luxurious Crescent at University Lake Condominiums on Stanford Avenue in Baton Rouge, directly across from LSU. The 2,682-square foot condo has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a view of University Lakes.

“We would like to congratulate Polly on winning our condo raffle,” said John Paul Funes, President/CEO of Our Lady of the Lake Foundation. “We also would like to thank Mike Wampold and the developers of The Crescent for donating the condo, our sponsors, and everyone who purchased tickets to help raise money for our new freestanding children’s hospital. Their generosity will allow us to purchase state-of-the art equipment and invest in programs that will improve the lives of many children across the region.”

Ethan Hawkins, a seven-year-old Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital patient, was on hand to help draw the winner. 

Proceeds will go toward the new freestanding children’s hospital and to help provide advanced pediatric healthcare to even more children across Louisiana and the Gulf South. The Foundation has raised $36 million toward its $50 million philanthropy goal for the new facility, which is slated to open in 2019.
