BC Children’s Hospital Foundation announced that tickets for the 2023 Dream Lottery are on sale now until midnight, October 12, 2023, or until tickets sell out.

Lottery funds help accelerate the pace of turning discoveries into life-saving treatments – ultimately helping more kids get back to being kids.
“Thank you to all British Columbians who purchase Dream Lottery tickets and support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation—you help to make us mighty.
