The house of dreams – potentially yours, and those of sick children – can be found in Vernon.
Vernon is among seven grand prize locations in the 2021 Choices Lottery.
Funds from the lottery go to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, and tickets are on sale now through April 8 or until they are sold out.
The lottery supports research that leads to innovative discoveries and treatments, which in turn directly helps experts at Children’s Hospital advance their quest to conquer childhood illnesses.
The grand prize winner can choose one of seven luxury home packages – in Morgan Creek and Grandview Heights in South Surrey, Vernon, Okanagan Falls, Vancouver, Courtenay and Victoria. The winner also has the option of choosing $2.2 million in tax-free cash.
The Vernon prize home is located at the Infinity, 1000 Mount Robson Way, on Middleton Mountain.
The 2,229-square-foot home has three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a double garage.
The prize package also includes a 2021 Class A Southwind 35K Motorhome, a 2021 BMW X5 xDrive 40i, and $1.4 million cash.
The total prize package is valued at over $2.4 million.
“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,” says Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “These discoveries are so critical in our quest to conquer childhood illnesses, which still impact too many children in our province.”All prize home video tours are available to be viewed online.
There are more than 3,200 prizes worth over a total of $3.9 million, including luxury homes, vacations, and cars.
The early bird draw is valued at more than $350,000 and has 51 winners. One winner will choose between a private jet to Maui, plus five nights of accommodations for six people, a 2020 Audi e-tron Progressive Quattro and $75,000 cash; or a fully furnished one-bedroom condo at Watermark Beach Resort, plus $40,000; or $250,000 cash.
