The Bluewater Health Foundation is marking the 20th anniversary of its popular Dream Home Lottery by offering the largest grand prize in its history.
This year’s winner has the option of moving into the five-bedroom, 1,989 square foot bungalow at 41 Kamal Dr. in Sarnia’s north end. The home alone is valued at $435,000.
But unlike previous dream homes, this one comes completely furnished, including electronics and appliances, pushing its value to over $512,000.
“To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are excited to share that we have a bigger prizeboard with so many chances to win,” Marg Hendra, volunteer chair of the dream home committee said in a press release.
The modern domicile is located in an attractive new subdivision, right off the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Modeland Road.
The interior furnishings walk a fine line between funky and sleek, with a large, white mock deer bust, translucent glass lights in the dining room and stylish, black couches in a downstairs media room.
The open-concept home’s ground floor bathroom boasts a fashionable glass door shower and a modern-looking, clawfoot-styled bathtub.
The dark grey brick exterior is complemented by a number of medium-sized windows, with a concrete porch serving as a gateway to an ample backyard.
The grand prize ticket can be redeemed for a $300,000 cash prize in lieu of home. And like all Ontario lottery winnings, the prizes are tax-free.
Lottery proceeds benefit Bluewater Health’s maternal infant child program through better equipment an enhanced patient care.
Tickets are $100 and available at the Bluewater Health Foundation’s office, Brushstrokes Interiors and various community locations including area banks, credit unions and Shoppers Drug Mart stores, or by calling 519-464-4428.
Deadline for the grand prize draw is Feb. 14, 2015 at midnight. The draw itself will be held Feb. 20 at the Sarnia Golf and Curling Club.
