Homes in Kelowna and at Big White are among the top prizes available for the winner of a lottery that supports B.C. Children’s Hospital.
Tickets for the annual Choices Lottery are now on sale and will remain so until April 12, or until they sell out.
The overall lottery winner can choose one of nine homes available in different B.C. communities. Each Kelowna-area top prize package is said to be worth $2.6 million and includes the home, $1 million in cash, $50,000 worth of new furnishings, a new vehicle, gas and groceries for a year, and gift cards.
The overall lottery winner could opt instead for homes and prize packages worth comparable amounts in Vancouver, Sooke, Burnaby, Langley, or Surrey.
“B.C. Children’s Hospital is the only hospital of its kind in the province, tackling the most complex physical and mental health challenges facing kids today,” Choices Lottery celebrity spokesperson Erin Cebula said in a release.
“A fun way to support the B.C. Children’s hospital is by purchasing a Choices Lottery ticket.”
A total of 345,000 tickets will be sold for the lottery’s grand prize. Three packs of tickets cost $100; six packs for $175; and 20 packs for $500.

The Kelowna home featured in the Grand Prize package is in the Upper Mission at 1131 Collinson Ct. People can tour the house on Wednesdays, Thursday, and Friday, from noon to 5 p.m. each day.
