Last chance to get in on the lottery’s biggest prizes
Dream time is almost over, so there’s no time to rest. The opportunity to get in on big prizes while supporting local hospitals is fading fast. There are just seven days left to buy a ticket - and almost 95 per cent of tickets are now sold.
This is also the last week to visit the Dream homes in person. The homes will remain closed after the June 23 final deadline.
“If there was ever a time to buy, it’s now,” says London Health Sciences President and CEO John MacFarlane.
The Thursday deadline is the last chance to get a ticket and a chance at the lottery’s
ultimate grand prize choice between a striking container home in Bayfield by Hillier Contracting, a stylish and airy North London loft condo by Domus with $400,000 cash, and a stunning London home by Bridlewood with a Lexus RX in the driveway and $200,000 cash, or $1 million in cash. Whichever option the winner chooses, it’s tax free.
In addition to the home-or-cash top prize, there are cars, recreation vehicles, shopping and life experience prizes to be won in the final draw, and there are two calendar draws with winners every day in August and September. Additionally, the 50/50 Plus TM is more than $880,000, and will likely top $900,000. You need a Dream ticket in order to buy into the 50/50 Plus TM.
“The best reason to buy is that we all win with the great health care that the lottery supports at our hospitals,” says MacFarlane.
Dream Lottery has raised more than $27.1 million (net) since 1996 to support innovative equipment and technology, research, teaching and unique patient care initiatives at St. Joseph’s Health Care London, London Health Sciences Centre and Children’s Hospital at LHSC. These hospitals combined, receive more than 1.5 million patient visits each year from across Southwestern Ontario and beyond.
All Dream Lottery details including: rules, prize list, maps to the dream homes and their open hours, virtual home tours, sales deadlines, draw dates – and how lottery proceeds benefit patients at all three hospitals - can be found on the lottery’s website at www.dreamitwinit.ca.
