VANCOUVER, BC, Friday, May 8, 2020 — Your Hometown Heroes Lottery ticket purchases support VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, providing life-changing funds for those who need it most. Every year, VGH performs more than 30,000 surgeries and attends to more than 600,000 patient visits. And at BC’s biggest hospital, the doctors, nurses, front line workers and health care heroes are working hard to save British Columbians every day.
“BC’s hometown heroes come to aid of people in life-threatening situations every day,” says Sebastian Sevallo, the lottery’s co-spokesperson. “Our health care workers and first responders are working tirelessly to help people throughout BC.
“When you need help, your heroes respond.”
Every year, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales in the Hometown Heroes Lottery are allocated to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burns, Trauma and High Acuity Unit (BTHAU) at Vancouver General Hospital. Lottery ticket purchasers have been long-term supporters of this important unit, providing for equipment and patient care needs.
As the hospital transitioned to create dedicated COVID-19 units, the BTHAU was a prime space to utilize due to access to the ICU and strong infection control mechanisms. For this reason, it has been converted into a dedicated COVID-19 patient unit.
“During these extraordinary times, your Heroes Lottery ticket purchase makes an even greater impact,” says Karen Khunkhun, the lottery’s co-spokesperson.
