BC Lions help kick off Hometown Heroes Lottery

Team members bring Grey Cup to South Surrey prize home

Members of the BC Lions were on hand when the Grey Cup came to South Surrey last week to help kick off the 2012 Hometown Heroes Lottery.

Team members converged on the lottery’s South Surrey grand prize home, at 2948 Semiahmoo Trail, where the Grey Cup was displayed to promote the lottery, proceeds from which support trauma teams and medical specialists in B.C.

The lottery offers more than 3,400 prizes  totalling $3.1 million, plus a new feature – a 50/50 draw that could go as high as $1 million for the winner, depending on sales.

While tickets for the main lottery are two for $50, six for $100 and 16 for $250, the tickets for the separate 50/50 draw are priced at one for $10, five for $25 and 15 for $50.

Also available are chances for five sports fans to win two tickets to 10 BC Lions home games, plus $600 in cash.

Proceeds support trauma teams and medical specialists at Vancouver General Hospital, UBC Hospital and the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre, by paying for medical equipment and programs of the B.C Professional Fire Fighter’s Burn Fund, including the annual Burn Camp for young burn survivors.

Tickets can also be purchased at London Drugs stores or by calling 604-648-4376 or 1-866-597-4376 (toll free), or for tickets and more prize information, visit heroeslottery.com
