A Great Cause – with a Grand Prize

BC Children’s Hospital Choices Lottery helps kids, with chance to win $2.8 million dream home package

This year’s Choices Lottery offers up 8 Grand Prize options (featuring homes across beautiful B.C. or $2.2 million tax-free cash), three Bonus draws, a gigantic Early Bird, and a 50/50 PLUS jackpot that’s already over $1.3 million.

But the biggest prize of all?

When you get your tickets, you’re supporting BC Children’s Hospital Foundation – and you’re helping kids shine.

All tickets purchased support research breakthroughs that will conquer childhood illnesses.

“During these uncertain times, the money raised through the Choices Lottery is more important than ever,” said Teri Nicholas, President and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “These funds go towards groundbreaking research and discovering new treatments for sick and injured children across B.C. and the Yukon.”

Every year, more than 96,000 kids visit BC Children’s Hospital for specialized paediatric care – and discoveries made here impact the lives of children in B.C. and around the world.

“These discoveries are so critical in our quest to conquer childhood illnesses, which still impact too many children in our province. Thank you to everyone who supports the Choices Lottery. You are helping us transform pediatric health care.”

WHAT CAN YOU WIN?

1 of 8 Grand Prize Choices – worth up to $2.8 million: Choose a home package in Morgan Creek or Grandview Heights… choose a Vancouver Island home package in downtown Victoria (Capital Park Residences in James Bay) or Courtenay (at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community)… choose an Okanagan home at Vernon’s Infinity, or a home near the shores of Skaha Lake in Okanagan Falls… or live an exciting city life in Vancouver, at Pinnacle in False Creek, in the heart of the action among coffee shops, brew pubs, parks, with your own parking spot, and on downtown’s doorstep!
