There is a little bit of time and plenty of tickets left for people who would like to buy a chance on winning the Red Deer Kinsmen’s 2011 Dream Home.

Campaign chairman Scott Bourke said on Thursday that sales are well ahead of last year, when the Red Deer service club sold barely enough tickets to meet its break-even point, including a commitment of $10 per ticket to the charitable groups it supports.

When the results were tallied, the 2010 campaign earned only about $150,000.

The annual Dream Home campaign had its best year in 2006, at the peak of the boom, said Bourke, who didn’t have exact numbers available for how much money was earned that year. As far as he knows, the campaign has never sold out.

As of 1 p.m. on Thursday, the Kinsmen had sold about 8,200 of the 14,115 tickets printed for the 2011 home with two and a half days to go before the deadline of 5 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are available online at reddeerkinsmen.com or in person from the home, as well as at Red Deer businesses including Buy and Sell by Photo, Servus Credit Union and Sproule’s Mountview IDA drug store.

The $587,000 home, located at 20 Sisson Ave., is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Tickets are $100 each or three for $250. The final draw will be made at the home at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
