SASKATOON – The chance to win a dream house and support health care at the same time has returned. The 2016 Hospital Home Lottery held its official launch Wednesday at the $1.6 million show home in the Willows neighbourhood in Saskatoon.
Valentino Homes built the 4,300 square-foot house and it comes professionally furnished by Atmosphere Interior Design.
The winner of the house also gets $10,000 in cash. The early bird prize includes a 2017 Porsche Macan S and a trip to Tahiti or $75,000.
“We hope for a sell-out and we hope that for as much money comes in, we can split the net profit three ways and we can help support health care,” said Steve Shannon, CEO of the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation and the chair of the Hospital Home Lottery.
Saskatoon City Hospital would purchase endoscopic ultrasound equipment. St. Paul’s Hospital would put the money toward converting an operating room into a transplant operating suite. Royal University Hospital’s proceeds would be used for its trauma centre.
Single tickets are $100, packs of three are $250 and packs of five are $375. A “super pack” is available for $500 and includes six home lottery tickets, 15 50/50 tickets and five tickets to the cash calendar, which awards cash prizes daily in April.
Tickets are available online or by calling 1-877-957-0777.
