Final Ticket Sales Push Underway For Red Deer Hospitals Lottery!

By Sheldon Spackman

A final push for ticket sales in the 2017 Red Deer Hospitals Lottery is now underway. Officials say the fundraising lottery is just over 75 percent sold-out, with the ticket purchase deadline for the Main Draw approaching at 11:00 pm on June 18th. The final draw itself takes place at 9:00 am on July 7th. However, the Mega Bucks Draw will take place the day before on July 6th.

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.

As for the lottery, it features hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes, including a truck, car, motorcycle and many others. 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.

So don’t miss out on your chance to win this home or any of the other fantastic prizes available in the 2017 Red Deer Hospitals Lottery!
