BC SPCA announces early bird winner of 2012 Lottery…for the animals

 April 2, 2012

The BC SPCA would like to congratulate the early bird prize winner in the 2012 BC SPCA Lottery...for the animals. Donald and Helen Romero of Abbotsford won the early bird prize of $5,000, drawn earlier today.

Tickets are still available for the BC SPCA Lottery...for the animals, which funds urgently-needed medical care, sheltering, spay and neuter services, advocacy, adoption and foster care programs and other services provided for homeless and abused animals in BC SPCA shelters across the province.

This year, the BC SPCA Lottery is featuring prizes totaling $100,000, including daily prizes in May and the early bird draw awarded today. Deadline for ticket sales is April 15, while quantities last.

“When you purchase a BC SPCA lottery ticket, you’re not just getting the chance to win a daily jackpot. You’re also helping us care for the more than 32,000 animals we rescue each year,” says Farrah Rooney, the BC SPCA’s manager of fundraising events.

Though the early bird draw is over, there are still 31 cash prizes left. This includes prizes of $2,500 to be won each day in May, larger prizes of $5,000 awarded each Friday, and a special Mother’s Day prize on May 13 worth $10,000. Tickets are $25 each, three for $55 and five for $80.

“Don’t miss out on the opportunity to change your life and the lives of homeless animals,” says Rooney. “Tickets are going fast, so get your tickets soon.”

Each winning ticket is re-entered for the daily prizes. To order tickets, call 604-205-5998 (toll free at 1-855-205-5998) or order online. Ticket purchasers must be 19 years of age or older and tickets can only be sold in B.C. Know your limit, play within it.
