The Hospitals of Regina Foundation launched its 30th anniversary home lottery in support of its Trauma Care Campaign Tuesday.
The grand prize is a fully-furnished and professionally-decorated $1.1 million home located in The Creeks.
The 3,400 square-foot, rustic style house has wooden features with high ceilings, soapstone kitchen counter tops, and a “sports lovers'” basement that’s complete with four large-screen televisions, a ping-pong table and a mini-bar.
Proceeds raised in ticket sales will go towards trauma-care services at Regina’s Pasqua Hospital, General Hospital and Wascana Rehab. Specifically, the funds will help provide new equipment for emergency rooms and critical care units.
Dr. David McCutcheon, vice-president of Physician and Integrated Health Services with RQHR, said having new medical tools is crucial for the well-being of those in southern Saskatchewan.
“It’s extremely important because it saves lives, but it’s also extremely important because it gives the community a sense of security, knowing that they have the best possible treatments available,” he said.
Earlybird prizes include a trip to Tahiti and a $630,000 cottage at Katepwa Lake, along with other exotic vacations and brand new vehicles.
Single tickets are $100, three-packs are $250, five-packs are $375 and “super packs” are $500.
The grand prize home is open for viewing starting Saturday.
