Luxury Kelowna home and $1.5M in cash among prizes in hospital lottery

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.

But tickets for the Millionaire Lottery – which supports VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation – don’t come cheap.

Two tickets cost $100, five cost $175 and 10 are going for $250.

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.

“Everyday medical needs didn’t stop when COVID-19 hit,” Angela Chapman, president and CEO of VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation, said.

“Throughout this pandemic, our researchers and medical teams, who treat patients from across BC, have done a tremendous job looking after the patients in their care.”
