Hometown Heroes Lottery features grand-prize home in South Surrey

Semiahmoo Peninsula prize package valued at $2.6 million

A South Surrey home is among nine grand-prize options in the upcoming Hometown Heroes Lottery.

This year’s recently launched lottery – proceeds from which support urgent needs at a number of Vancouver-area hospitals and health-care facilities, as well as programs for burn victims and fire fighters – includes grand-prize homes in a number of cities, from North Vancouver to Penticton, and also includes a home at 3188 167 St.

The Semiahmoo Peninsula home is 4,724 square feet, with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, and is described as having a “linear design and large windows.” The prize package also includes $80,000 in home furnishings, a 2021 Tesla Model Y Long Range and $25,000 in cash.

The total package is valued at $2.6 million. Rather than choose one of the many homes, the grand-prize winner also has the option of taking $2.1 million in tax-free cash.

“Cancer surgery, organ transplants, hip and knee replacements and so much more: these medical needs didn’t pause when the pandemic hit,” said Angela Chapman, president and CEO of the Vancouver General Hospital and UBC Hospital Foundation.​

“COVID-19 has brought many new challenges for our health care teams, but with support from British Columbians our researchers and medical teams, who treat patients from across B.C., have done a tremendous job looking after the patients in their care.

“Lotteries have provided funds to equip our world-class health care teams with the tools and technology they need to provide the best care possible.”

The Semiahmoo Peninsula has been a popular location for lottery prize homes. Last January, two homes – one in Morgan Creek and one in Grandview Heights – were part of BC Children’s Hospital’s Choices Lottery.
