The Hospitals Lottery is the biggest fundraiser each year for the Red Deer Regional Hospital Foundation. This year, all the money raised will go towards new beds. However, these are no ordinary beds. They are the latest in hospital bed technology, which means they have increased safety, comfort and functionality. The end result being reduced pain, pressure points and skin break-down for patients staying at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.

Not to mention a Mega Bucks 50-50 draw, which currently boasts a jackpot of nearly $400,000. The Grand Prize though, is a brand new Sorento Custom Home valued at $839,900. This dream home at 105 Larratt Close in Red Deer’s Laredo neighbourhood is 3,494 square feet of finished, luxurious living space.
Red Deer Hospitals Lottery Chairman Graham Moore, says selling the lottery out would mean close to a million dollars for the Hospital. It was 86 percent sold-out last year, with ticket sales this year, about on-par with 2016.
