Live the Dream and Help the Little Ones at CHEO!
September 14, 2015 - OTTAWA – The CHEO Foundation officially launched the 2015 edition of CHEO’s Dream of a Lifetime Lottery this morning at the Minto Dream Home in Manotick. Coming off last year’s sell-out, lottery organizers are hoping that this year’s spectacular prize lineup and the return of the incredibly popular 50/50 Draw will lead to an even bigger success for the families who need CHEO.
The Minto Dream Home, the centerpiece in the $1.7 million grand prize package is located at 800 Percival Crescent in Manotick and truly is a home that dreams are made of. Fully furnished and exquisitely decorated the Minto Dream Home features furnishings by La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries and comes with $100,000 in cash, a 2016 Chevy Camaro 2SS from Myers Automotive Group, house cleaning for a year, and $5,000 in groceries from Farm Boy.
The second prize is worth over $161,000 and includes $100,000 cash, a 2016 Nissan Rogue SL, AWD from Myers Automotive Group, a seven-day Eastern or Western Caribbean cruise for two from Destination Anywhere, and an Ottawa Senators 100 Level Flex 40 season ticket package.
To be eligible for the amazing Early Bird Package valued at over $95,000, tickets must be purchased by midnight, November 13, 2015. This package includes a trip for two to the 2016 NHL All-Star Game in Nashville, $50,000 cash, a 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Highline from Myers Automotive Group, and trip for two to the five-star Majestic Elegance Hotel, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic from Marlin Travel and Transat Vacations. You could also win one of 2,500 early bird bonus tickets that will give you another shot at the array of prizes in the final draws.
The 50/50 Draw is back and this year the guaranteed minimum payout is $250,000. The more tickets are sold, the higher the payout will be for the 50/50 winner. When purchasing Dream of a Lifetime Lottery ticket(s), remember to purchase your tickets for the 50/50 Draw available at one for $10, five for $25 or 15 for $50. Last year, the escalating jackpot topped out at $1,041,400 which means our 50/50 winner took home $520,700.

Ticket buyers who order their tickets before midnight on September 25th could win a trip for two to the 103rd Grey Cup game in Winnipeg!
