MIDDLESEX CENTRE, ONT. -- The 2021 Spring Dream Lottery for London hospitals has set a new record, selling out in 14 days.
This marks the third lottery in a row to set a new sales record. Last fall tickets sold out in 28 days.
Officials with the lottery, which supports London's three major hospitals, are thanking everyone who has supported the fundraiser.
“Even in this uncertain time, you continue to stand by the patients and families across our region that require care at London’s regional hospitals,” Scott Fortnum, president and CEO of the Children’s Health Foundation said in a statement.
Just two days ago, the Dream Lottery announced it had surpassed 85 per cent sold.
This year marks the 25th year of the Dream Lottery, a partnership of Children’s Foundation, St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation and London Health Sciences Foundation.
Since, 1996, it has raised a net of more than $44.5 million.
With the early sell-out, the draw day for the grand prize and the 50/50 winners is being moved up to June 17.
