Houses in Vernon and Okanagan Falls among grand prize choice in Choices Lottery supporting BCCHF

One of seven new homes throughout B.C., including Vernon and Okanagan Falls, could be yours if your winning number is drawn.

The BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has announced tickets for the 2021 Choices Lottery are now on sale until Thursday, April 8, or until tickets sell out.

The grand prize winner of the lottery can choose one of seven luxury home packages located in Vernon, Okanagan Falls, Morgan Creek and Grandview Heights in South Surrey, Vancouver, Courtenay and Victoria.

The winner also has the option of choosing $2.2 million in tax-free cash instead of taking one of the prize home packages. All prize home video tours are available to be viewed online at bcchildren.com.

The Choices Lottery supports research that leads to innovative discoveries and treatments, which in turn directly helps experts at BC Children’s Hospital advance their quest to conquer childhood illnesses. Here, hundreds of researchers work to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Lottery funds can help accelerate the pace of turning discoveries into life-saving treatments – ultimately helping more kids get back to being kids.

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

The Vernon home is located on Middleton Mountain on Mt. Robson Way, a three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home with double garage, 2,229 sq. ft. with sweeping views of Kal Lake.

The house in Okanagan Falls is on Cabernet Drive, 4,400 sq. ft with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and located on Skaha Lake.

Ticket sales for the 2021 Choices Lottery run until midnight, April 8, but tickets often sell out before the final deadline. There are more than 3,200 prizes worth over a total of $3.9 million, including luxury homes, vacations, and cars, including:

To encourage early ticket buying, the Early Bird prize is valued at more than $350,000 and has 51 winners.

In addition, another 50 winners will receive $1,000 cash each. The Early Bird deadline is midnight, March 25, 2021.
