PEI, April 25, 2016 — The 23rd annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of Prince Edward Island Dream Cottage Draw is now underway!

The lottery will award four early prizes leading up to the Grand Prize Dream Cottage draw. The first deadline is for the Early Bird prize of $5,000 cash- purchase your tickets before the May 25th deadline to be entered into this first draw! Other early prizes include the Draws for Dad and Summer Fun prizes, and a Travel prize which will award one roundtrip for two to any regularly scheduled WestJet destination.

Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission is to inspire and empower children to reach their full potential through a variety of mentorship programs. This includes their Traditional, In-School mentors and (new) Teen Mentors, in which “Big Brothers” and “Big Sisters” spend time with a child every week and provide guidance, which has been shown to improve the children’s self-esteem and academic performance. They also offer a variety of group programs such as their Go Girls & Game On group programs, which promote physical activity, healthy life choices, and building girls’ self-esteem.
