You could win the BC Children’s Hospital Choices Lottery and move into a prize home without even leaving the Comox Valley.

There are actually two homes in the Comox Valley included as grand prize homes in the lottery. There is a house at Crown Isle Drive in Courtenay, along with a townhouse nearby at Idiens Way. The package also includes a 2020 Tesla Model 3 RWD and 2020 Chevrolet 1500 Silverado 4WD, along with $650,000 cash. The local offering makes up one of eight grand prize choices.

“This year’s Choices Lottery grand prize packages are the best yet! The winner can choose one of seven incredible homes across B.C., or choose $2.2 million, tax-free cash,” Erin Cebula, Choices Lottery celebrity spokesperson, says in a news release.

The house at Crown Isle is a 2,647-square-foot home with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The townhouse on Idiens Way is 1,161 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and as the lottery website states, it can serve as a source of income for life.

Some of the details for the Crown Isle Drive home include engineered hardwood floors, custom cabinets, a Hide-a-hose vacuum, stone flooring in the foyer, barrel and vaulted ceilings, quartz and natural stone countertops, French doors in the master suite and a freestanding soaker tub.

Other locations of luxury homes include Victoria, Vancouver, Squamish, Kelowna, Tsawwassen and South Surrey. In all, there are more than 3,000 prizes totaling more than $3.9 million. In addition to the luxury home grand prizes, prizes include vacations and cars.

Proceeds support the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. The BC Children’s Hospital is the only hospital in the province set up exclusively for children, with a world-class acute care centre, research institute and mental health facility. It will soon be adding a rehabilitation centre as part of its campus.

“With the help of Choices Lottery, BC Children’s Hospital can focus on funding research that goes exclusively to the care of children, from babies to teens, across BC and the Yukon,” says Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Not only do we treat sick and injured children, but our ultimate vision is to keep them healthy. Lottery proceeds provide our research team with the knowledge and skills to continue moving our pediatric care to the next level.”

Ticket sales for the Choices Lottery run until April 9. People can purchase tickets online at, by calling 604-692-2333 or toll-free at 1-888-887-8771, in person at select prize homes, at London Drugs, Save-On Foods, or BC Children’s Hospital. For more information visit
