Homes in Vernon and Kelowna are among the eight grand prize options in the annual B.C. Children’s Hospital Choices Lottery.
A cash prize of $2.3 million is among the options, as are residences in Vancouver, South Surrey, White Rock, and Sooke and Courtenay on Vancouver Island.
“Every year, BC Children’s Hospital treats approximately 100,000 kids, many of them battling debilitating diseases and chronic conditions,” said the hospital on its website. “Research is critical to overcoming these illnesses—and with your support, you’re helping to advance studies that have the power to solve the biggest challenges in child health.”
From opening the door to novel therapies for conditions like childhood cancer or rare diseases, to discovering life-changing breakthroughs in the way experts deliver care or perform surgeries, your support will bring new hope to children and families who need it most.
