“With your help, we are changing the lives of children and youth with one conversation, one experience, one donation and one mentor at a time,” says Gloria Lawrence, Marketing Specialist for BGCBigs. “As the largest annual fundraiser, funds from this lottery support BGCBigs by enabling us to continue serving thousands of kids through various out-of-school and mentoring programs. Kids who attend our clubs are 91% more active and 90% more likely to make better choices. Additionally, 91% report feeling more confident because of a club.”
This year’s dream home and prizes have everything participants have come to know and love – plus some extra special features.
Lawrence explains, “This is now the 3rd year we’ve included installed solar panels on the Dream Home so not only will the winner enjoy living mortgage free, but they can also enjoy saving on electricity. This year’s home is a two storey with a finished walk out basement backing onto a pond in the beautiful up and coming area of Erin Ridge North in St. Albert. Highlights include heated floors in the finished basement and ensuite and a chef kitchen with Fisher & Paykel appliances (including a double oven, double dishwasher and a gas range).”
The grand prize is the $1.25 million dollar Dream Home, plus $10,000 cash. The Dream Home is open for viewing at 25 Evermore Crescent in St. Albert on Fridays from 4 pm-8 pm, and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 11 am-5 pm.
Additional prizes being introduced this year include a Forest River R-pod travel trailer valued at $53,999 (or the option to take $36,000 in cash) and a travel experience to New York City valued at $15,000 (or the option to take $13,000 in cash).
Lawrence points out, “Get your Dream Home tickets early and you’ll be included in the early bird prizes. Early bird #1 is $50,000. Early bird #2 is a trip for two worth $15,000 to Europe.”
The popular 50/50 draw also returns this season. “Win50 sells fast and someone could take the jackpot of up to half of $2 million!” says Lawrence. It’s easy to track the Win50 jackpot’s growth by checking online daily.
