BC Children’s Hospital Dream Lottery

Your lottery ticket purchases have a tremendous impact on BC Children’s Hospital’s research programs, which deliver direct benefits to children in BC, across Canada and around the world. Since BC Children’s Hospital held its first lottery in 2002, lotteries have contributed over $40 million to research at BC Children’s Hospital.

  • BC Children’s Hospital lotteries are entirely self-funded. This means that all costs, including prizes, advertising and fees are covered by revenue from ticket sales. The net proceeds have an immense impact on the success of their research programs. Between 25 and 30 per cent of lottery proceeds are used to support research. They do not use donated funds to cover any of their lottery costs.
  • BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s lotteries are conducted as a business that is quite separate from the charity side of their operations. BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s lotteries are overseen by a committee of the Board of Directors.  Risks are carefully managed and they adhere strictly to BC Government rules and regulations regarding gaming.

    Really? The phone number is at the bottom of every page of the website, as well as in the sidebar on the right-hand side.

    I’m not sure if I have the right department but I am trying to find a number to purchase a hospital lottery ticket. Tonight is the last day for the early bird draw. Not sure if you are able to help me out.

    There is no number anywhere!

    your website in checking to see if my ticket won anything is not user friendly. All I can do is subcribe to updates

      Please check for winners at http://bcchildren.com. The Home Lottery News is not the BC Children’s Hospital Lottery.

    can out of province people purchase tickets, and/or purchase a ticket in someone else’s name other than the purchaser?

    • Rick Vandenberg September 29, 2015 at 3:50 pm #

      Purchasers must be physically within the province at the time of purchase. I can’t comment with certainty about if the purchaser can buy a ticket on someone else’s behalf; I suggest you contact the lottery’s customer service department for an official answer.
