A Sylvan Lake man believed he and his wife would win a house — and they did.

A Sylvan Lake man believed he and his wife would win a house — and they did.

Floyd Anderson told his wife on Tuesday to take the phone with her while she was gardening because “we’re winning a house today.”

They were the grand prize winners of the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation’s Hospitals’ Lottery.

The couple wasted no time seeing their new home, a 2,800-square-foot home at 19 Tobin Gate in Red Deer. True Line Homes built the home that is valued at $654,554.

It was one of 460 prizes drawn for the foundation’s big fundraising event. This year’s lottery will help fund pulmonary equipment for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. It will aid in diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, asthma, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as supporting all units of the hospital that require the regular use of respiratory equipment.

Red Deer area residents Wayne Eastcott and Guy Dorval will be splitting the early bird prize — a 2012 Dodge Sport crew cab truck and a 2012 Crusader fifth wheel, or $57,500 cash. The truck and fifth wheel package is worth $92,232.

Sylvan Lake’s Glenn Alward, who works inside Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre’s information technology department, was speechless when he was told he had won a 2012 Dodge Challenger or Caravan, valued at $36,865.

Jerry Costache from Drumheller won the choice to take either a 2012 Ford Explorer or a 2012 Ford Mustang, valued at $30,028.

The names of all prize winners will be published in the Red Deer Advocate on Friday. It will also be on the lottery website at www.hospitalslottery.com
