Tri-Hospital Dream Lottery Back to Benefit Manitobans

Posted: May 2, 2018

Working Together for Better Care: The foundations of Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg, Children’s Hospital-HSC Winnipeg, and St. Boniface Hospital launch Manitoba’s largest hospital lottery yet
 
May 2, 2018 — Winnipeg, MB — Three of Manitoba’s biggest hospital foundations have teamed up again to help patients in need while offering the biggest grand prize options ever in Manitoba hospital lottery history. The Health Sciences Centre Foundation, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, and St. Boniface Hospital Foundation are launching the 2018 Tri-Hospital Dream Lottery today, to make a significant impact on health care in Manitoba.
 
"With our three hospital foundations working together, we can achieve more for the greater good – delivering the best possible patient care,” says Gary Rozak, Interim President & CEO, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. "Patients like our Champion Child Abigail, who at only age four needed a very high level of specialized equipment as she fought a disease that caused her white blood cells to eat away at her bones. Now 11-years-old, Abigail is in remission and living like someone so young should. Thanks to lottery supporters, miracles like Abigail’s are made possible.”
 
"Thanks to support from generous Manitobans, including through our lottery program, our three hospital foundations have a tremendous impact on the quality of care we provide to families,” says Vince Barletta, President and CEO, St. Boniface Hospital Foundation. "Whether it’s a family in crisis, a premature baby in need of the latest technology, an organ transplant, or a family member undergoing life-saving surgery – you can depend on us.”
 
"We’re proud to continue this collaboration that supporters asked us for,” says Jonathon Lyon, President & CEO of the Health Sciences Centre Foundation. "By joining forces, we can help more patients than we ever could alone, while offering Manitobans the chance to win some of the best lottery prizes ever seen in the province.”

  • Freedom. Take home $1.2 million tax-free cash. Whether it’s early retirement, world travel, paying off your bills, or paying for your kids’ education… spend it, save it, invest it, or share it — it’s up to you!
Ticket buyers can also get in on the 50/50 PLUS, which can grow up to $1.755 million, with the winner taking half. Or the Daily Cash Calendar, where every day in August, two winners take home $1,000 cash. Fridays are lucky, with two winners taking home $3,000 each, and the Cash Calendar grand prize winners are luckiest of all, with two winners taking home $25,000!

Each year, hundreds of thousands of Manitobans — including children — depend on our hospitals to be there in times of greatest need. Health Sciences Centre, Children’s Hospital-HSC Winnipeg, and St. Boniface Hospital serve almost one million patients annually and help deliver more than 11,000 babies each year. But it can’t be done without your help.
 
When you purchase a lottery ticket, you help purchase state-of-the-art equipment to treat both children and adults in need of immediate, specialized care. You also help fund research discoveries that could change the face of health care as we know it by unlocking new medicines and treatments.
