Ticket Sales Sluggish for PG Hospice Home Lottery
Prince George, B.C. – Plenty of tickets are still available for this year’s Prince George Hospice Home Lottery.
Sales have been so slow that it has Donna Flood, executive director of the Prince George Hospice Society, concerned.
“I have to be frank with you, they’re not going as well as I would like to see. We’ve only got five weeks left and I still have over 3,000 tickets to sell.”
She says proceeds from the ticket sales provide a vitally important service in the community.
“Well what this does, this allows us to do the services that we do. As everybody knows we provide end-of-life care for our guests and their families,” says Flood.
“We’re only 42% funded by Northern Health, the rest we have to look to the community to fund so that being said, we look for our $1.2 million from the community.”
This year’s draw will take place at the dream home at 7630 Creekside Way in College Heights on October 27.
She says the final 50/50 draw will take place at the home October 24. This year’s home is over 2,400 square feet and features four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a finished basement. It’s valued at over $500,000.
You can purchase your $100 dream home tickets on site, at participating Save-On-Foods and Canadian Tire.
