The homes that have been won in the Saskatoon Hospital Home Lottery get better and better each year. This year they’re giving away a stunning $1.3 million Grand Prize Showhome from Haven Builders.
“My wife has seen 28 homes so far over the years and she loves all of them,” says Steve Shannon, CEO of the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation and Lottery Chair. “But she said this one is by far her number one favourite. Contemporary, neat, open. It’s a must see.”
The showhome is located in Greenbryre Estates at 108 Greenbryre Lane. It’s open daily on weekdays from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM and noon to 5:00 PM on weekends. Some of the features include a beautiful skylight in the master ensuite, a courtyard in the front of the house, and the winner of the Grand Prize, on top of winning the house, also walks away with $10,000 cash.
“[The house] reminds me of Palm Springs,” says Shannon. “You just want to grab a cocktail and enjoy the breeze.”
The Hospital Home Lottery has been operating for over three decades. They have given away millions of dollars in prizes over the years and all for an exceptional cause. Proceeds go to Royal University Hospital Foundation, St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation, and Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation, supporting our city’s hospitals with life-saving equipment and programs.
“It’s truly a huge success story,” says Shannon, “and we’re so grateful to people who buy tickets and support programs. When people buy tickets, they often say, ‘I hope I win. But I consider it a donation.’ That’s why it’s so special. The houses are amazing, but the cause is to help out the hospitals.”
The showhome may be the biggest prize, but it’s certainly not the only one that would cause a person to jump up and down with excitement. There are vehicles, vacations, experiences, sports tickets, and more.
“There’s a chance to win a BMW 28i or coupe,” says Shannon, “your choice of a Dodge Crew Cab or Charger. Ten Nights in Bali or Maui. Seven nights in New York. Surfing in California, winter packages, Rush season tickets, a ton of prizes, as well as the early Early Bird Cottage at Candle Lake.”
If all the tickets are sold by the early bird deadline of October 27th, the final draw would be November 9th. Visit hospitalhomelottery.org for complete details and to purchase tickets. Or you can call 1-866-957-0777. It’s a good idea to buy tickets sooner than later, as selling out before October 27th is a distinct possibility.
“We sold out a month before the early bird deadline last year,” says Shannon.
A contribution may win you a prize, but it will also help make a difference in the health and wellness of patients, ensuring the best possible care at Saskatoon’s three hospitals.
“We are extremely grateful for the support,” says Shannon. “All of the foundations are touched and grateful for the response every year. It truly is gratifying to see people support us, so we can in turn make life better for so many other people.”
