Details announced for the 2012 CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery
A television in the shower, elegant barn board walls, a putting green in the back yard…all elements of the spectacular Minto Dream Home that is part of the grand prize in CHEO’s Dream of a Lifetime Lottery. Complete details were revealed earlier today at the launch event held in the magnificent 4,592 square foot Minto Dream Home located in Manotick.
Only 63,000 tickets will be sold and because the lottery has sold out in previous years, organizers are encouraging everyone to purchase early to make sure you have a chance at winning. Single tickets are $100 each or three for $250.

Second prize is worth $160,183 and includes $100,000 cash, a 2013 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible from Jim Keay Ford Lincoln, an Alaskan cruise for two from Destination Anywhere, and a $10,000 Gift Certificate from Jubilee Fine Jewelers.

To be eligible for the amazing Early Bird Package valued at over $87,000, tickets must be purchased by midnight, November 16th. The package includes $50,000 cash, a 2013 Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback from Jim Keay Ford Lincoln, an Ottawa Senators Flex 40 package in the 100 level and a trip for two to the Barcelo Beach Prestige Golf Collection and Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic from Marlin Travel and Transat Vacations.
