Dream homes are the peak of relaxation

Ron Mikula, Chair, London Health Sciences Foundation, Michelle Campbell, President & CEO, St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation, and Scott Fortnum, President & CEO, Children's Health Foundation, try out the simulated driving range in the basement of the Jefferson Industrial Dream Home.

Dream Lottery (LL10699) is here again with three home choices that are the peak of relaxed refinement. Just under the summit of Boler Mountain, you’ll find the Jefferson Industrial Dream Home. Valued at more than $1.45 million, its spectacular windows wash design elements, like exposed brick and steel usually seen in chic lofts converted from industrial spaces, with natural light to create a unique and relaxing setting. 

Right across the street, the Jefferson French Provincial Dream Home inspired by the European countryside, is valued at more than $1.25 million and comes with $250,000 cash. There, you’ll find elegant style and a soft pastel palate of colours creating a refined but cozy space that invites you to stay a while. 

In Grand Bend, the Nicholson Pinery Dream Cottage valued at almost $1.2 million also comes with $250,000 cash. From the outdoor living space, to the large walk in pantry, to the lower-level entertaining space, this cottage has everything needed in a home-away-from-home.

Of course, the ultimate grand prize winner can simply opt for $1 million in cash and use it to bring a different dream to life. 

Along with several early draws and secondary prizes in the final draw, the 50/50 (LL10700) is back, with a guaranteed payout of $250,000 and no maximum. Last spring the prize pool topped $1 million. There is also a new Travel & Treasure Calendar (LL10701) offering a prize every day in August. A Dream Lottery ticket must be purchased in order to be able to buy either the 50/50 or calendar. Hospital employees can buy and win. Both Dream tickets and calendars have sold out in the past, so buying early is best.

Even better is the realization that every ticket creates a win for Southwestern Ontario. Since 1996, Dream has contributed more than $35 million (net) to support specialized, complex and critical care at the regional hospitals in London.

“Dream Lottery supports outstanding care delivered during the 1.9 million patient visits that our hospitals receive from London and other communities across our region each year,” says Michelle Campbell, President and CEO, St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation. “Proceeds help fund the latest technology, medical equipment and research studies that lead to new medical breakthroughs and treatments.” 

Tickets can be purchased at the dream homes, any of the three participating hospital foundations, participating Shoppers Drug Mart locations, by calling 519-488-7100, or online at www.dreamitwinit.ca. Dream Lottery is now offering memberships, which act much like a subscription; conveniently ensuring members automatically have tickets for future draws. Details and sign-up are available at dreamitwinit.ca/membership.

All other Dream Lottery details, including ticket prices, prizes, draws, virtual tours of the homes, addresses, maps and open times to see the homes in person, as well as important dates and contest rules, can be found at www.dreamitwinit.ca.
