‘We turned this home into a dream home’

This could be your ticket to owning B.C. real estate – and a $2.5-million Grand Prize

For the first time ever, the Hometown Heroes Lottery is offering its biggest winner nine Grand Prizes to choose from – including a beautiful three-level, 4,585 square-foot family home in South Surrey’s Ocean Park, part of a $2.5 million Grand Prize package.

The home (1912 Laronde Dr., Surrey) is located in one of the city’s most desirable, sought-after communities, built by Ryder Creek Homes and designed by Jen O’Donnell and Urban Barn.

“This is a beautiful home and it was a fantastic blank slate to work with,” says O’Donnell (in the video below), who adds that she and Urban Barn “turned this home in a dream home.”

Head online to HeroesLottery.com to see more of this home – including the photo gallery, video tour, and virtual tour – or come and visit in-person. It’s open every day of the week from 11am to 5pm.

The lottery is offering homes all across beautiful British Columbia, including South Surrey, Abbotsford, Cultus Lake, downtown Vancouver, the Okanagan (Lake Country and downtown Kelowna), and Vancouver Island (Colwood and SookePoint).

Or there’s everyone’s favourite choice – $2.1 million tax-free cash.

It’s a Win-Win: there are over 3,100 prizes up for grabs, worth a total of over $3.4 million. And if you don’t win, you’re still supporting an amazing cause!

As always, all tickets purchased support VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.

“VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation is very grateful to receive the proceeds from Hometown Heroes Lottery. These funds purchase life-saving medical equipment at Vancouver General Hospital,” says Barbara Grantham, Foundation President and CEO. “Each ticket purchase has a direct impact on patients and enables us to be able to put the most advanced medical tools into the hands of our talented medical teams, ensuring that VGH remains at the forefront of specialized care for adults in B.C.”

“Burn Fund has been in operation for 41 years, and more than 3,900 professional fire fighters from across B.C. and the Yukon dedicate their time to support burn survivors, and increase the public’s knowledge about fire and burn safety issues,” said Lisa Beck, Burn Fund Executive Director. “The funds raised through Hometown Heroes Lottery go towards burn awareness, research, and prevention programs. We are extremely thankful to everyone who support the Hometown Heroes Lottery.”
