Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Tri-Hospital Dream Lottery?
The Tri-Hospital Dream Lottery is a combined lottery in support of Winnipeg’s three biggest hospitals.
St. Boniface Hospital, Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg, and HSC Children’s Hospital have been working together for years to deliver health care to Manitobans. Last year, our three hospital foundations joined together once again to bring you the Dream Lottery, helping Health Sciences Centre Foundation, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, and St. Boniface Hospital Foundation. We have been working together for years to deliver crucial health care to Manitobans, and we’re working together on another terrific lottery with 3,029 prizes to suit everyone’s lifestyle and all your dreams.
Proceeds from the lottery will be split between the three hospital foundations to support the hospitals that you and your family rely on. Each year, hundreds of thousands of Manitobans depend on our hospitals to be there in times of greatest need. Health Sciences Centre, HSC Children’s Hospital, and St. Boniface Hospital help deliver 11,400 babies each year. Our emergency rooms assist 200,000 families in distress, and together we serve almost 1 million patients annually. Whether it’s a family in crisis, a premature baby in need of the latest technology, or a family member undergoing life-saving surgery – you can depend on us. Help us work together and provide families with world-class health care right here in Manitoba.
When you purchase a lottery ticket, you help us purchase state-of-the-art equipment to treat both children and adults in need of immediate, specialized care. You help us fund research discoveries that could change the face of health care as we know it. Your support could help us overcome today’s most debilitating diseases and conditions.
