A luxury Kelowna home in the hills is one of the prizes in a lottery designed to raise funds for the province’s biggest hospital.
The three-bedroom Upper Mission home, which is in the Kestrel Ridge development, offers views of Okanagan Lake and comes furnished.
It also comes as part of a winner’s package worth $2.9 million, which includes a 2020 Tesla Model X Long Range, 2020 BMW x5 xDrive40i and $1.5 million in cash.

Those who are particularly keen on boosting their chances of victory can get 25 tickets for $500.
The money raised through ticket sales will go towards research, adult health care, critical medical equipment and more.
