Calgary Foothills Hospital Luxury Home Lottery

Two Calgary luxury homes for two decades.

To celebrate its 20th year, two luxury Calgary homes were unveiled Tuesday as part of the Foothills Hospital Home Lottery.

The first, built by Thompson Luxury Living, is a $2.5-million home in the Ranche at Heritage Pointe, featuring a vaulted great room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a state-of-the-art kitchen while the second home, built by Calbridge in Evanston, is worth $900,000.

Starting Wednesday, the show homes will be available for viewing from 2 to 8 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends.

Tickets bought before May 3 will also be eligible for the early-bird draw for an Audi R8 Spyder.

The winner of that draw will have their choice between the car, or $200,000.

Started in 1993, the lottery has raised more than $50 million to support the advancement of medical technology at Foothills Hospital, including a trauma care centre, virtual simulation centre, the Bone Marrow Transplant Program and the Stephenson Cardiovascular Centre.

Some of the equipment bought with lottery proceeds include an interventional radiology suite for diagnostic imaging, at PET/CT scanner, Stryker iSuite operating equipment rooms and Novalis radiosurgery technology, resulting in shortened wait-times and improved diagnosis and care for patients.

This year’s fundraising goal is $3.5 million.

In total, 8,625 prizes are up for grabs in this year’s lottery and tickets are available at or by calling 1-888-541-5540.

Tickets are $100 each or three for $250 and five for $400.

You can also buy a Take 50 add on for $10, which will see one winner take half a growing pot, already at $350,000.
