Tickets for the David Thompson Health Region Foundation’s Hospitals’ Homes Lottery 2009 are now available.

The grand prize is a fully furnished, three-bedroom home, worth $670,000, built by True-Line Contracting Ltd. at 16 Welsh Close.

Tickets are $25 each, five for $100 or 15 for $250. To purchase tickets, call toll free 1-877-808-9005 or 403-340-1878, order online at www.hospitalslottery.com or visit the DTHR Foundation office on the main floor of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
