Calendars already gone and 50/50 tops $1 million
London, Ont. – With less than five per cent of tickets left, Dream Lottery could
sell out before the Bonus Draw deadline this Thursday at midnight. If that happens,
the final draw will be held early – with the grand prize and 50/50 winners being
revealed on December 5. However, if any tickets remain by Friday, the winners will
be revealed as previously scheduled on January 9.
The Money & Memories Calendar is already sold out. 50/50 tickets are still available
with the prize pool now more than $1 million and growing (a Dream Lottery ticket
must be purchased first, to be able to order 50/50 tickets). Any Dream Lottery tickets
purchased before midnight Thursday will also be entered into the Bonus Draw that
includes chances at 99 cash prizes and one prize of a $10,000 Robert Q Travel Certificate
(or $8,000 cash instead).
Once Dream Lottery tickets sell out, the dream homes will close to the public, in
order to maximize net proceeds to the beneficiary hospitals. Sales of 50/50 tickets
will also close once Dream tickets are sold out.
"We want to thank our community and region. The response to Dream Lottery and its
cause continues to be amazing," says Children's Health Foundation President & CEO
Dream Lottery has raised almost $37 million (net) since 1996 for innovative technology
and equipment, ground-breaking research, and continuing medical education and training
that enables doctors, nurses and staff at London's hospitals to provide exceptional,
patient-centred, life-changing care for patients from across Southwestern Ontario
