VANCOUVER, BC (July 8, 2022) – BC Children’s Hospital Foundation today announced that tickets for the 2022 Dream Lottery are on sale now until midnight, October 13, 2022, or until tickets sell out. The Dream Lottery supports world-leading research initiatives that lead to innovative discoveries and treatments, which in turn directly help experts at BC Children’s Hospital advance their quest to conquer childhood illnesses. Here, more than 1,200 researchers work to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Lottery funds help accelerate the pace of turning discoveries into life-saving treatments – ultimately helping more kids get back to being kids.
“Dream Lottery funds go directly to BC Children’s Hospital research initiatives that ultimately transform children’s lives through groundbreaking innovation and discovery,” said Malcolm Berry, President and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Last year approximately 138,000 patients visited our hospital from across B.C. As the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children, BC Children’s Hospital provides a calibre of child-centred specialized care that is difficult to find anywhere else in the province—and this expertise is why the research discoveries made here at BC Children’s hold such great potential for finding answers to the biggest questions that remain in child health. Thank you to everyone who supports the Dream Lottery through ticket purchases. It is your support that extends hope for children and youth facing the most complex and serious health conditions.”
The winner of Dream Lottery can choose one of eight grand prize dream packages:
“What would you choose if you won the Dream Lottery grand prize? Would you pick the $2.3 million cash or one of the seven incredible grand prize home options like the Ocean Park home in South Surrey worth over $2.8 million? This luxurious home is stylish with a gourmet kitchen, private bar, yoga studio, gym, and plenty of room to entertain, both inside and out,” said Erin Cebula, BC Children’s Hospital Dream Lottery spokesperson. “I continued to be honoured to work with BC Children’s Hospital and the Dream Lottery. Lottery funds go to research initiatives that open the door to novel therapies for conditions like childhood cancer or rare diseases. The support of British Columbians for the Dream Lottery will continue to bring new hope to children and families who need it most.”
