THE HEALTH CARE FOUNDATION HOSPITAL HOME LOTTERY IS BACK
IT’S THE PROVINCE’S MOST SUCCESSFUL HOME LOTTERY
St. John’s, NL September 8, 2010 – The Health Care Foundation announced today the launch of its third annual Health Care Foundation Hospital Home Lottery.
“The Health Care Foundation Hospital Home Lottery is back and better than ever!” said Frank Fagan, board chairman of the Health Care Foundation. “This year’s prize package features 1,540 prizes, with a grand prize Showhome that must be seen. The community’s past response has been overwhelming, and we look forward once again to everyone’s support of this important fundraising endeavour.”
Headlining the prize list is a custom-built Rockwood Grand Prize Showhome, boasting over 3,400 square feet of luxury living. Located in all-new Virginia Water Village, this prize comes fully furnished, professionally decorated and landscaped.
A great reason to purchase tickets early is the ‘Choose Your Chevy Early Bird Prize.’ The winner chooses between the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro or the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab. The Early Bird sales deadline is November 4, 2010.
The Health Care Foundation Hospital Home Lottery prize package consists of 1,540 prizes, including a host of new vehicles, Harley-Davidson motorcycle, a Sea-Doo Speedster and more. Plus, there are worldwide vacations and an exciting line up of real world luxuries — from large screen plasma, LED and LCD TVs; to Blue-ray players, GPS navigators, Coolpix camera kits – and much more. The total prize package is valued at $1.3 million. Chances of winning a prize are 1 in 20.
This innovative fundraiser is expected to raise more than $900,000, which will support the work of the Health Care Foundation, enhancing health care within St. John’s hospitals and benefiting residents within Newfoundland and Labrador.
Full-color lottery brochures with descriptions of all prizes are being delivered by Canada Post this week to every household in the province. Tickets are $100 each, or a 3-pack for $250; and brand new this year, buyers can choose to add on the ‘50/50.’ Tickets can be purchased at the Grand Prize Showhome at 30 Parsonage Drive, St. John’s; at the outlets listed on the back of the lottery brochure or by calling 1-866-992-1899, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
