Don’t miss out on your chance to win this year’s Red Deer Hospital Lottery dream home, built by Sorento Custom Homes, or one of a host of other amazing prizes!

Picture yourself winning this $840,000 Dream Home

Annual Red Deer Hospital Lottery offers loads of exciting prizes

There’s more than one way to win in the 22nd annual Red Deer Hospital Lottery, but you can’t win if you don’t play.

Single tickets have already sold out – 7,000 of them were snapped up at $25 each. But you can still get five tickets for $100, or 15 tickets for just $250. Each ticket is a chance to win a Dream Home or one of the other prizes. The total value of the prize pool is $1.1 million!

The home is built by Sorento Custom Homes – three bedrooms, two and a half baths on 3,110 square feet of developed living space. It’s loaded with extras, including a master chef kitchen and butler pantry, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and beautiful wood beam accents.

Or you can get in on the “Mega Bucks 50” draw, and win half of the rapidly-growing jackpot: your share could be $200,000 or more! You’ll need to buy soon, though, as Mega Bucks tickets are already 80 per cent sold!

Travis Kuschminder of the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation says the biggest winners over the years are the people of the Red Deer region, who have seen the benefits their hospital has gained through lottery proceeds.

“You know that your support is going towards the hospital,” he said, “medical equipment that makes a difference to the quality of healthcare we receive as Central Albertans.”

This year’s proceeds will purchase Pyxis Medstations, a system for safely and accurately recording patient prescriptions, allowing nurses to deliver the right drugs in the correct dosages at the right time. It will replace handwritten prescriptions and improve dispensing and tracking of medications.

Kuschminder says the range of lottery prizes is exciting. “It’s a great lottery this year. We have that grand prize dream home valued at over $880,000, with $40,000 worth of furnishings from The Brick.”

“We’ve got a 2019 Ford Mustang, a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 4×4. There’s an appliance package, a houseboat experience, electronics, bikes and so much more. So it’s really an exciting prize pool,” he said.

Tickets are on sale until June 24, and the prizes will be drawn July 5. There is a $25,000 Early Bird Draw but you have to get your tickets before May 27 to win. The Early Bird Draw takes place on June 14.

The Dream Home is open to the public Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. at 68 Larratt Close. Tickets can be purchased there, at the Foundation office, online at reddeerhospitallottery.ca, by phone at 1-877-808-9005, or by mail.

There’s lots of prizes to be won, but the real payoff is the support for Red Deer Regional Hospital.

“Chances are you’ve had family or friends or even yourself walk through these doors and spend some time in the hospital,” Kuschminder said. “So the proceeds going right back into the hospital for urgently-needed equipment is something we can all benefit from.”
