Although home sales this March were the lowest they’ve been in nearly four decades, Vancouver’s real estate market remains a hot commodity.

So we probably don’t have to get you excited about the prospect of owning a $2.3 million lottery home in Olympic Village. But this year, there’s an even bigger reason to enter to win the draw of the Hometown Heroes Lottery.

Funds raised for the annual lottery, run by the Vancouver General Hospital and UBC Hospital Foundation, will go towards supporting specialized adult health services and research at VGH and UBC Hospital, as well as supporting healthcare and essential workers.

In a press release announcing ticket sales, the hospital foundation said, “for years, lottery funds have helped ensure that medical teams in BC have the tools and equipment they need to save lives.” The release notes that now is the time to “thank our front line workers, first responders, doctors, nurses, and all our health-care heroes.”


Angela Chapman, president and CEO of VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, says, “In recent weeks our front line health care staff have devoted themselves to preparing to care for COVID-19 patients. They are also ensuring that people can continue to access care to meet their urgent medical needs.”

Tickets for the Hometown Heroes Lottery not only go towards a great cause, but will put you in the running to win one of nine grand prizes, including brand new homes in White Rock, Kelowna, Abbotsford, and Penticton. This year, the lottery has announced that you’ll also have a chance to win a two-bedroom penthouse in Olympic Village. You read that right.

If you win the Olympic Village package, not only will you win a brand new apartment, but also:

  • $50,000 cash for furnishings and electronics
  • 2020 Tesla Model 3
  • European Escape Travel Gift Card
  • PLUS $250,000 cash
