Dream Home Video Tours Now Online

VANCOUVER, BC, Friday, July 30, 2021 — The winner of this year’s 2021 BC Children’s Hospital Dream Lottery Grand Prize Draw will get to choose 1 of 8 amazing options, including home packages throughout beautiful British Columbia – or $2.3 million tax-free cash, the largest cash Grand Prize option in BC Children’s Hospital Lottery history!

You could live the dream in the location of your choice, whether it’s lake view living in Kelowna or Penticton, city living in Vancouver or downtown Victoria, or within a golf course resort like Crown Isle in Courtenay, or a $2.9 million home package in South Surrey’s Morgan Creek neighbourhood.

And, if you’re in the mood for a sneak peek, video tours for both South Surrey homes (built by Red Tree Creative Homes, or Marquis Custom Homes) and the Penticton home (by Parallel50 Constructions) are now online.

The Penticton Dream Home combines 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on two levels, with a setting featuring open skies, gentle rolling hills and unlimited outdoor adventure.

The 5,975 sq. ft. Red Tree home in Morgan Creek is full of fun, luxurious features, such as a backyard basketball court and a secret lounge on the lower level, while the Marquis home (also in Morgan Creek) stars with 18-foot vaulted ceilings, oak beams, a hot tub and rec room, and a 40-foot patio – all in 5,744 sq. ft. with a modern farmhouse style.

“This home is bright and welcoming,” says Erin Cebula, this year’s Dream Lottery spokesperson, in her tour of the Marquis home, where she highlights the house’s modern design and one of her favourite features – a 9-foot eclipse window over the kitchen sink that brings the outside in and the inside out.

“There’s lots of room for family, friends, and entertaining… There’s gorgeous, engineered flooring throughout, radiant heat, and the entire home is air conditioned.

“Eight-foot vaulted ceilings are in every bedroom, and you will absolutely love relaxing in your spa-like ensuite (bathroom) – just around the corner.”

Which home is your favourite? Head to the Dream Lottery website to view the photo galleries and video tours and make your pick!

Car Raffle to Benefit BC Autism Community

VANCOUVER, BC, July 27, 2021 — The 4th Annual AutismBC Raffle gives British Columbians a chance to purchase tickets to win a brand-new 2022 SUV with proceeds supporting AutismBC. The provincial charity’s annual fundraiser raises important funds for programs and services that support autistic children and adults, families, and professionals across the province.

“My family has benefitted from the many resources from AutismBC.,” said a mom in an AutismBC parent survey. “In the world that my children live where compassion and understanding are not always present, I know that being a member of AutismBC has helped give my family many opportunities that I would not have known about.”

Applewood Auto Group has stepped up once again this year as the raffle presenter with a 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander 7 passenger AWD SUV as the grand prize to one lucky winner. Other prizes in the raffle include a Thunder 20-inch E-Bike donated by Richmond E-Bikes, a Nintendo Switch game unit courtesy of London Drugs, plus an early bird prize of an iPad. There will also be a 50/50 draw for a cash prize. Other sponsors supporting the raffle include Vancouver’s Pawlick Automotive, Orbital Learning, and Prospera Credit Union, as well as Quality Foods of Vancouver Island.

AutismBC says the raffle is a critical component of their fundraising for the year as they begin their COVID-19 recovery transition.

 “Close to 7,000 people in the autism community depended on AutismBC last year for support,” says Julia Boyle, Executive Director of AutismBC. “This raffle raises the essential funds we need to continue to run our programs for children, adults, families and professionals throughout the province. We are so grateful to sponsors, prize donors, and to everyone who purchases a ticket. We couldn’t deliver our services without their support.”

According to AutismBC, today in British Columbia, 1 in 40 children has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis and there are approximately 60,000 children, youth, and adults on the spectrum. AutismBC has been supporting people on the autism spectrum and their families since 1975 with information, workshops, social clubs, and one-on-one support from regional resource teams with lived experience in autism. Last year they saw their greatest number of requests for services.

Tickets for the 2021 AutismBC Raffle presented by Applewood Auto Group start at $10 for the 50/50 and at $20 for the main raffle. Bundle savings are available. Deadline is midnight September 30th.  You must be 19 years and over, and in BC to enter and win.

About Royal Columbian Hospital

From the beginning, Royal Columbian Hospital has stood at the heart of health care in British Columbia. Created by visionary pioneers to provide compassionate care to those building a new province, we have participated in the social and economic changes of British Columbia since 1862. Today, we are one of British Columbia’s busiest hospitals, serving a population of more than 1.8 million people. We are a regional referral hospital for cardiac, trauma, neurosciences, high-risk maternity and neonatal intensive care. No other hospital in the province provides all of these services, at this level of care, on one site. We provide the highest level of care to the most critically ill and injured from throughout the province.

Revolutionizing Patient Care

Royal Columbian Hospital is undergoing one of the most ambitious hospital redevelopments in Canadian history. This redevelopment goes beyond rebuilding a hospital. It is transformational. This multi-year, multi-phase $1.49 billion redevelopment will revolutionize the way we deliver care to our patients by creating a world-class, state-of-the-art hospital that provides uncompromising care.

The cornerstone of the project – a new Acute Care Tower – will elevate lifesaving care that serves one third of our province’s population in the largest and fastest growing health region in BC.

Our vision is to create a world-class hospital: a state-of-the art facility that provides uncompromising care and remarkable patient experiences.
With a larger footprint and the introduction of cutting-edge technology, we will continue to respond to the needs of patients in their most urgent, life-altering moments.

A Transformation in emergency and trauma care

Trauma physicians refer to the first hour after a traumatic injury as the ‘golden hour’ – they are the critical minutes for medical and surgical intervention.   When a traumatic incident occurs, the clock starts to tick. Every moment counts – and life hangs in the balance.

The Emergency Department, one of the most highly utilized in the province, is the entry point to trauma care, and both services will receive significant additions during the hospital’s redevelopment. The new Acute Care Tower will house a larger Emergency department with 75 state-of-the-art treatment bays – increasing total space by more than half.

As one of two Level 1 Trauma Centres for adults in BC, Royal Columbian is equipped, trained and certified to deal with large-scale catastrophes. It receives more Air Ambulance patients directly from accident scenes than any other hospital in the province.

In the new Acute Care Tower, the Emergency Department will include four trauma bays and a new Imaging Unit, strategically placed within the Emergency Department to drastically speed up access to diagnostic procedures.

Also, one operating room will be purpose-built and always available for trauma patients, to help avoid interrupting scheduled surgeries.

These additions and improvements will speed up admission, assessment and treatment. The hospital will have more space to accommodate all types of ER patients, and trauma patients can avoid being moved from one part of the hospital to another to get the scans they need.

As well as supporting emergency and trauma care, Royal Columbian’s redevelopment will include an interventional super floor with operating rooms and interventional radiology and cardiology suites, new and larger maternity, pediatric, and neonatal intensive care units, and multiple floors for acute and critical care patients. 

This transformation is one example of how you can help by purchasing your tickets.

Get your tickets today. Support our healthcare heroes and help to provide care to those in need.

About the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation

The Cowichan District Hospital Foundation was established in 1984 and is dedicated to raising funds to purchase equipment and support patient & resident care at the Cowichan District Hospital and its extended care unit, Cairnsmore Place. A local hospital, such as CDH, is at the heart of the community that it services. Together, through generous support of donors and volunteers, the CDHF has raised over 21 million dollars for improved healthcare in Cowichan.

Our hospital opened its doors in 1967 and since that time the community has significantly outgrown the building, creating unique challenges. Construction on the new hospital will begin early in 2022, with the goal of opening to the public by the fall of 2026. Now is the time to show your support for local healthcare and you can do that by playing the CDHF 50/50 raffle.
