A trio of hospital foundations in Saskatoon will be on the receiving end of the proceeds raised from the Hospital Home Lottery Prize Home Fundraiser.
The Royal University Hospital will use their share of the proceeds to buy $600,000 worth of surgical equipment that will be used by neurosurgeons.
Meanwhile, Saskatoon's City Hospital Foundation will be using part of their proceeds on upgrading equipment as well as supporting the MS Clinical Research Chair Campaign, which is working towards finding a cure for MS.
St. Paul's Hospital Foundation CEO Bruce Acton says St. Paul's Hospital will be using their portion of the proceeds to get a state of the art piece of equipment known as a SPECT-CT, which would be the first of its kind in Saskatoon.
The SPECT-CT combines a best of CT scan with a nuclear scan that will help to improve diagnostic imaging at the hospital and throughout the Saskatoon Health Region.
The 29th edition of the Fundraiser launched yesterday and this year's prize home will be the largest ever awarded by the foundation.
The 4200 square foot home is located in the Willows in Saskatoon, and backs on to the 5th fairway of the Willows golf course.
The house includes a wet bar, gourmet kitchen, library, media room and gym as well as a huge master bathroom and walk-closet.
The Early Bird deadline for the Prize Home Lottery is April 3rd and as an incentive to buy your tickets one lucky winner will be chosen in the Early Bird Draw April 16th and they will have their choice of a 2014 Land Rover Sport, a 2014 BMW X5 or $88,000 in cash.
The final grand prize draw for the Hospital Home Lottery Prize Home is set for April 30th.
