London, Ont. - It's October, and hospital supporters are in for a real treat with
the Fall edition of Dream Lottery. The lottery quickly sold out this past Spring
and it has a shot at repeating the feat by offering a choice between two tricked-out,
fully furnished prize homes or a cool $1 million in cash.
From the main floor master suite to the secondary kitchen, The Magnolia Refined
Rustic Dream Home is meticulously designed to accommodate diverse lifestyles. Built
by Mike Holmes Approved Home Builder, Wastell Homes, this 4,665 sq. ft. home boasts
architectural character and French country farmhouse-inspired finishes; like a two-storey
family room, a vaulted ceiling in the eat-in kitchen, and wood beams in the dining
room. Textured, sophisticated finishes are married with cutting-edge, modern conveniences

Beautifully designed, exceptionally built, the $1.45 million Highland Green Estates
Dream Home by Reis Design + Build, is a sprawling, single-storey home boasting 4,130
square feet that showcases a seamless transition between form and function. The
home fuses old world and traditional exterior design elements with the modern amenities
you'd expect to find inside today's luxury homes; including the latest and greatest
in smart home automation, designer finishes and custom millwork throughout.
There are so many other prizes to be won in the early and final draws, such as cars,
travel, jewellery and more.
Best of all, each purchase of a Dream Lottery ticket helps change the lives of patients
from across Southwestern Ontario who need the specialized services at St. Joseph's
Health Care London, London Health Sciences Centre, and Children's Hospital at LHSC.
Dream Lottery has raised almost $37 million (net) since 1996.
Even more treats to shell out
A new Money & Memories Calendar Lottery doubles the number of prizes from previous
calendar lottery's by awarding one each day for two months in February and March.
Previous calendar lotteries awarded prizes over a one-month period. A Dream Lottery
ticket must be purchased in order to be able to buy a calendar.
The 50/50 is also back, with a guaranteed payout of $250,000 and a total prize pool
that can keep growing. The prize pool topped $1 million in the last draw, with the
winner taking half. Like the calendar, a Dream Lottery ticket must be purchased
in order to be able to buy into the 50/50.
Tickets can be purchased at the dream homes, any of the participating hospital foundations,
participating Shoppers Drug Mart locations in London and St. Thomas, by calling

Calendars and 50/50 tickets can be ordered at all sales locations at the time of
a Dream Lottery ticket purchase. After buying Dream Lottery tickets, they can only

are guaranteed tickets for future draws. For membership details, visit dreamitwinit.ca/membership.
