Dream Lottery
Support For Hospital Lottery Surges

London, Ont. – A Muskoka-like cottage near the lake in Bayfield and two designer homes on a "street of Dreams" in London are driving lottery sales at a blistering pace.

"Tickets are flying out the door faster than the Fall when the lottery sold out early," says Children's Health Foundation President and CEO Scott Fortnum. "We're almost 80 per cent sold so, if you want a ticket, it may be best to buy now."

There's been a steady flow of visitors to the three prize homes since they opened less than a month ago - all of which are receiving rave reviews for their layout, design and décor. Even so, the eventual winner could opt for $1 million in cash instead. Secondary prizes in the final draw include vehicles, vacations, cash and gift cards. Early draw prize options include travel or cash along with free Dream tickets for increased chances to win. The next deadline is May 24 at midnight for the VIP draw.

The lottery's 50/50 prize pool is already more than $750,000 and still growing (winner takes half). The Dollars & Destinations Calendar may also be looking at an early sell out if the sales pace keeps up. A Dream Lottery ticket must be purchased in order to be able to buy into the 50/50 or the calendar draw.

"The best aspect of Dream Lottery is that everyone in Southwestern Ontario wins, since proceeds support the highest-priority needs at the regional hospitals in London," says Fortnum.

Dream Lottery has raised more than $31.8 million (net) since 1996 for innovative technology and equipment, ground-breaking research, and continuing medical education and training that enables doctors, nurses and staff to provide exceptional, patient-centred, life-changing care.

Tickets can be purchased at the dream homes, the participating hospital foundations, participating Shoppers Drug Mart locations, by calling 519-488-7100, or online. 50/50 tickets and Dollars & Destinations Calendars can be ordered at all sales locations at the time of a Dream Lottery ticket purchase. After buying Dream Lottery tickets, they can only be purchased by phone at 519-488-7100. Lottery details, including ticket prices, prizes, draws, addresses, maps and open times for the homes, important dates and contest rules, can be found at www.dreamitwinit.ca.

Dream Lottery is a joint venture of Children's Health Foundation, St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation and London Health Sciences Foundation. Together, Children's Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre, St. Joseph's Health Care London and London Health Sciences Centre receive more than 1.5 million patient visits from across Southwestern Ontario and beyond each year. In addition to caring for London-area residents, the hospitals are referral centres providing specialized services in support of the excellent care of the region's community hospitals.
