The Children’s Wish Foundation is dropping the “home” from their annual lottery.
Originally called the Children’s Wish Foundation Home Lottery, the new lottery has dropped the home option after years of winners choosing the cash prize instead.
“In the history of the lottery, we’ve found that most people prefer a cash option instead of a house,” Provincial Chapter Director Gay Oldhaver said. “They thought it was better to not have to move, sell or pay property taxes. Our lottery is provincial, just like our work, and the million dollar grand prize is really appealing in every corner of the province.”
The Children’s Wish Foundation Lottery is the largest fundraised for the provincial chapter of the Children’s Wish Foundation. In total the foundation has granted more than 1000 wishes to local children facing high-risk, life threatening illness.
The charity’s goal is enhance the quality of life for the children and their families by creating unique and meaningful experiences.
“Money raised in Saskatchewan stays here,” Oldhaver said. “Together we are working to make life better for children all over Saskatchewan.”
