The Hometown Heroes Lottery is offering up nine grand prizes including a home in Lake Country

The annual Hometown Heroes Lottery is underway.

Ticket purchases raise funds for specialized adult health services and research for all British Columbians. They will drive innovation and sustainable health care at VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and Vancouver Community Health Services and will go to supporting Burn Fund programs, including the annual Burn Camp for young burn survivors.

Funds directly support burn survivors across the province, many of whom are treated at the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn, Plastic and High Acuity Unit at VGH.”

“Each ticket purchase has a direct impact on patients and enables us be able to put the most advanced medical tools into the hands of our talented medical teams, ensuring that VGH remains at the forefront of specialized care for adults in BC,” said Barbara Grantham, President & CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.
