There’s a Red Deer dream home waiting to be won with Hospitals’ Lottery 2017.

Tickets for the annual Red Deer Regional Health Foundation lottery have been on sale for three weeks and the final draw for the dream home and other prizes will be made July 7.

Alaine Martin, events manager with the foundation, said tickets sales have been a bit slower compared to last year, but it’s still early.

“We’ve got two and a half months left to sell tickets but we want to keep it forefront of everybody’s minds. Help supporting the hospital would be very much appreciated,” Martin said.

Proceeds from this year’s lottery will fund the purchase of 25 to 30 advanced surface therapeutic beds depending on ticket sales. The beds will replace basic hospital beds that are getting old.

The 2017 lottery has a total of 145 prizes to be won valued at $1.1 million.

Martin said this year there are fewer prizes, but they are bigger prizes, including more furniture packages on display in the dream home.

The dream home, built by Sorento Custom Homes and valued at $839,900, features 3,494 square feet of finished living space. The impressive bungalow has a unique modern exterior and vaulted ceiling, a screened room to bring the outdoors inside, an airy fitness room enclosed with a glass wall, a kitchen with butler pantry and walk-through storage pantry, and much more.

The dream home is open daily from 1 to 5 p.m. until April 30. From May 1 to June 18 it will be open Wednesday to Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

A total of 102,000 tickets are available. Tickets are $35 each, three for $75, five for $100, and 15 for $250.

Hospitals MegaBucks Raffle, with 215,250 tickets printed, has a minimum cash payout of $100,000. Last year’s winner took home over $224,000.

Tickets are one for $10, 10 for $25 and 25 for $50.
