All B.C. residents stand a chance of hitting the jackpot through the 2018 Choices Lottery February Family Draw on March 16.
This much-anticipated lottery offers ticket-buyers an opportunity to win thousands of prizes while also raising funds for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. According to Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, the money raised will help provide “life-saving care” to the more than 86,000 kids who visit BC Children’s Hospital each year by funding research, equipment and patient care.
“The funding goes towards ground-breaking studies in the prevention, treatment and cure of childhood illnesses, and help all children reach their full potential,” said Nicholas.
