December 1, 2017 - London, Ont. – Dream Lottery has sold out two weeks before the
scheduled final sales deadline of December 14. The Money and Memories Calendars
component of the lottery sold out a week earlier.
"On behalf of all three participating hospital foundations I would like to thank
everyone who has bought tickets," says London Health Sciences Foundation President
and CEO John MacFarlane. "Your support of Dream Lottery makes a tremendous difference
in the way our hospitals can deliver the very best of care."
For those who already have a Dream lottery ticket, they can still purchase 50/50
tickets by phone at 519-488-7100 until the December 14 final deadline. That means
the prize pool can continue to grow. The 50/50 pool is currently more than $950,000.
The winner will take half.
The Dream homes, which have proven to be very popular, are now closed and will not
reopen. Closing the homes helps maximize the proceeds going to the hospital foundations.
Draws for the lottery will be conducted on January 10, 2018 with the major prizes
announced the next day, on January 11.
