Two homes in Vernon and Kelowna are among the grand prizes of the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation’s 2022 Dream Lottery.
Tickets are on sale now until midnight, Oct. 13, or until they sell out.
“Dream Lottery funds go directly to BC Children’s Hospital research initiatives that ultimately transform children’s lives through groundbreaking innovation and discovery,” said Malcolm Berry, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Last year approximately 138,000 patients visited our hospital from across B.C. As the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children, BC Children’s Hospital provides a calibre of child-centred specialized care that is difficult to find anywhere else in the province—and this expertise is why the research discoveries made here at BC Children’s hold such great potential for finding answers to the biggest questions that remain in child health.”
More than 1,200 researchers work to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Lottery funds help accelerate the pace of turning discoveries into life-saving treatments – ultimately helping more kids get back to being kids.
