Lottery home returns with millions in prizes

After taking a year off, the Winfall Lottery has returned with thousands of prizes to be won – including a $1.89-million South Surrey home – all in benefit of Peace Arch Hospital.

After taking a year off, the Winfall Lottery has returned with thousands of prizes to be won – including a $1.89-million South Surrey home – all in benefit of Peace Arch Hospital.

“We’re back with a tried, tested and I believe a true strategy,” Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation board member and WinFall chair Graham Cameron said at the lottery’s VIP grand opening last week.

Guests at the Aug. 5 event toured the 4,827-square-foot grand prize home, which is located at 2877 146 St. and includes a kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and custom antique maple cabinets; a master bedroom with an ensuite that has a soaker tub and two vanities; a backyard that features a covered and heated stone patio, hot tub and landscaped garden; as well as a media room, fitness room, games room and bar.

MC and TV meteorologist Mark Madryga – who has become the face of the lottery – explained how the fundraiser supports the hospital and “the miracles that happen each and every day” there.

WinFall has been in the market for 15 years, and has raised $25 million for the hospital, Cameron noted.

After 10 days of the website being active, more than 7,000 tickets were sold for this year’s campaign.

“We’re off to a great start,” he said.

There are 223,750 tickets available, and 1,779 prizes with a retail value of more than $2.5 million.

The South Surrey home is part of a $2-million grand prize package that also includes $50,000 cash and the winner’s choice of a 2011 Jaguar XFR or 2011 Land Rover Sport – or the option of choosing $1.75 million cash.

The early bird prize is $100,000 cash and is only available with the purchase of tickets before Oct. 5 at 11 p.m.

Other prizes include cars, gift cards and travel vouchers.

Tickets are three for $100, nine for $250 and 16 for $400, and can be purchased until Oct. 19 at 11 p.m.

“Proceeds from our ticket sales will provide lifesaving and life-enhancing equipment to Peace Arch Hospital and its skilled medical teams,” foundation executive director Jackie Smith said in a release. “The more support we have, the more funds for the hospital.”

The early bird draw will be held Oct. 19, and the final draw will start Nov. 7.

For tickets, call 604-436-5690 or toll free 1-855-205-5690, visit www.winfalllottery.ca or stop by the grand prize home daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
