Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit earlier this year, it has impacted Vancouver’s real estate market and the buying and selling of properties nationwide. But home prices remain steady despite a dip in sales.
That being said, owning property worth over a million dollars is still out of the question for most of us. But BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is giving one lucky someone a $2.5 million False Creek home as one of the 2020 Dream Lottery prizes.
Proceeds raised from the lottery go towards research initiatives at BC Children’s Hospital — supporting over 1,000 of the most daring thinkers in science as they work to pursue new knowledge. Their discoveries are then translated directly into improved care to benefit sick and injured children across the province.
“If there is anything this new health landscape has brought to the forefront of our minds, it’s the importance of innovative research in discovering new treatments that will help provide a healthier future for children,” Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, said in a release announcing ticket sales.
“The support that Dream Lottery generates can help advance research that will help transform health care for kids across BC.”
To support this incredible research, tickets for the 2020 Dream Lottery are available for purchase from now through midnight on October 15. And in terms of this year’s prizes, there is a lot to look forward to. The Dream Lottery winner can choose one of eight grand prize dream packages: a $2.2 million tax-free cash prize or one of seven spectacular prize home packages.
And apparently, they’re “dreamier than ever.”
The other prize homes listed this year are equally as impressive. One is a five-bedroom $2.8 million South Surrey property covering 6,255 sq ft prize — with an oversized double car garage — and it comes with $25,000 cash.
Stunning properties worth $2.5 million each in Kelowna, Victoria, Tsawwassen, the Okanagan, and Courtenay are among the winner’s options.
As a result of the ongoing crisis and in compliance with guidelines set out by the BC Ministry of Health, the grand prizes homes are not currently open to the public. However, they can all be viewed online.
Anyone who purchases their tickets for the Dream Lottery by midnight on October 8 is automatically entered into the Early Bird draw. The prize for this draw is worth over $350,000 — and it has 51 winners. One of these winners gets to choose between the following prizes:
- A 36′ luxury motorhome with $25,000 cash
- Or a Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid and Tesla Model X package, with $25,000 cash
- Or $250,000 in cash
Meanwhile, the additional 50 winners will receive $1,000 in cash each.
Every year, more than 93,000 kids count on the care at BC Children’s Hospital. The hospital serves the largest geographic region of any children’s hospital in North America, and discoveries made here impact children around the world. Your support can help youth continue to receive the best in health care.
Tickets for the BC Children’s Hospital Dream Lottery are available to order online, by mail, by phone, and in-person at Save-On-Foods and London Drugs. To get yours and view the full list of prizes available, visit bcchildren.com.
