Buying lottery tickets has never felt so good. Now, with the return of the BC SPCA Lottery… for the animals, you can win big by helping animals in need and potentially, put thousands of extra dollars in your pocket.
Tickets are on sale now for the 2014 BC SPCA Lottery… for the animals, which funds urgently needed medical care, sheltering, spay and neuter services, advocacy, adoption, foster care programs and other services provided for homeless and abused animals in BC SPCA shelters across the province. With a new five-year Strategic Plan in place, the BC SPCA plans to focus on B.C.’s overwhelming cat crisis with education and prevention strategies intended to help end the suffering of the province’s thousands of homeless and abandoned cats.
“The 2014 BC SPCA lottery is back, with more than $100,000 in prizes,” says Krista Constantineau, manager of fundraising events, BC SPCA. “It’s a win-win for animal lovers. You’ll help save the lives of B.C.’s most vulnerable animals and have the chance to win one of 31 cash prizes. While money isn’t everything, it can sure help to have some extra cash on hand.”
Tickets are $25 each, three for $60 and five for $90. There are daily cash prizes throughout June – $2,500 each day and $5,000 on Fridays – with a special prize of $10,000 awarded on Father’s Day. There’s also an early bird draw on Mother’s Day (May 11) for $7,500 (the early bird ticket purchase deadline is April 27).
Sponsored by AM 650 and TV Week, the lottery features another bonus: each winning ticket is re-entered for the daily prizes. To order tickets, call 604-205-5998 or request your tickets online at spca.bc.ca/lottery. 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.
