Halifax, NS, April 6, 2011 — The QEII Foundation announced this morning that the QEII Lifestyles Lottery is now over 70% Sold.
“If you were thinking of waiting for the early bird deadline – you may want to reconsider!” said Bill Bean, President and CEO of the QEII Foundation. “The pace of sales has been frantic since we launched, and with this in mind – it is not likely that tickets will last until the May 5th early bird deadline! We urge all those interested in supporting to order today and avoid disappointment!”
The QEII Lifestyles Lottery is offering up a Grand prize Cottage at Lewis Lake in addition to the Grand Prize Showhome located in the beautiful golf course community of Glen Arbour. Each grand prize package comes with some cash and the lakefront cottage includes a Pontoon Boat. All tickets ordered before the early bird deadline will be eligible for the “Mercedes-Benz Super Car or Cash” Early Bird Prize: One lucky winner will have the choice between The Mercedes-Benz Gullwing or $200,000 in tax free cash.
Over 6,500 prizes will be awarded, including exciting vehicles, worldwide vacations, home electronics and more. Chances of winning are an incredible 1 in 10! The 50/50 pot is now over $600,000 and still growing rapidly.
This fundraising endeavour is projected to raise over $2 million, which will enable the QEII Foundation to further support patient care, research and other QEII programs.
Tickets are $100 each or a 3-pack for $250 and can be ordered online @ www.QE2LifestylesLottery.com or by calling 454-2929 (local) or toll free 1-800-233-4877 within NS.
