Lottery home in White Rock is more than meets the eye

WHITE ROCK – While the 2014 Vancouver General Hospital Foundation’s lottery home on White Rock’s Pacific Avenue – with vaulted ceilings, floor-toceiling windows, walnut hardwood floors and 270-degree views of the ocean – may seem like it’s all about looks, there’s a philanthropic vein that pulses throughout.


For 19 years, the VGH Foundation has been raffling off epic lottery homes that boast state-of-the-art design and appliances, along with oceanfront views, in a contest that ultimately allows hospital patients access to new, improved health technologies.


"(The Millionaire Lottery)’s brought in net proceeds that go to the hospital, over $60 million," said Brian Dowling, senior vice president of finance and information systems at VGH Foundation.


This year’s grand prize has a total value of more than $3 million, which includes the Pacific Avenue home with more than $130,000 worth of designer furniture, a 2014 BMW i3 vehicle and more.


Tickets for the VGH Foundation’s Millionaire Lottery are one for $100, two for $175, three for $250 and eight for $500. Tickets for the 50/50 draw are $10 each, five for $25 and 15 for $50.


The prize home, located at 15574 Pacific Ave., is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit for more information.
