HATTIESBURG, Miss. – (June 17, 2019) Starting Monday, June 17, the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation will begin selling tickets for a chance to win a 2019 silver, fully loaded Honda CRV EXL. Tickets are $75 each, and only 1,400 tickets will be sold. The winning ticket will be drawn Thursday, August 29, 2019, at 6:00 p.m., at Vardaman Honda. Proceeds from this year’s Win This Car will benefit addiction treatment and recovery at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services.
This ambitious and meaningful campaign focuses on the completion of the Spiritual Grounds at Pine Grove, complementing the existing Circle of Healing sculpture, the Fire Circle, the Meditative Labyrinth, and the Medicine Wheel. The final two elements include the Pine Grove Chapel and the Bell Tower.
Located on the Pine Grove campus, the Chapel will serve as a peaceful and serene setting for small groups, meditation, personal reflection, or simply a place to relax and enjoy. The Bell Tower, consisting of artistic soaring pieces of steel and wood with three bronze bells, will have a much deeper meaning at Pine Grove. The three bells symbolize the journey of addiction. As a patient ends the first part of their journey, they ring a bell to celebrate. Upon finishing the second part of the journey, they find it requires someone to help physically ring the second bell. On the final journey, the patient discovers it takes a group to ring the third bell, strengthening the idea that as we heal, we must reach out and seek help from others.
“There’s something beautiful and peaceful about communing with nature during the recovery process. In addition to aiding in their recovery, the Spiritual Grounds offer patients a unique experience that can only be found at Pine Grove. We’re also happy to provide our donors with yet another opportunity to win a beautiful new car,” said Martha Dearman, executive director of the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation.
