Some of you have asked the following questions:
- When am I no longer in the Staff Lottery? There is one more draw in this year’s lottery (2016/2017 fiscal year). If you are signed up, you are eligible for the last draw (October 27). But you will need to reapply to be eligible for next year.
- What if I sign up today? If you sign up today, you’ll be in for the November 24th Draw and all the draws for the next 12 months.
- Am I in the October 27 draws if I’m already signed up? Yes
- What if I sign up now for the 2017-18 50/50 – will I be eligible for the October 27? No.

The draw is 50/50 – what happens to the other 50?
Half the proceeds of each draw go to one lucky staff member, and the other half goes to the VGH/UBC Foundation. Since the lottery began you have helped raise over $225,000 which directly benefits patient/client comfort and care throughout our hospitals. Last year lottery funds purchased four ventilators for use in acute care at VGH, and community care at George Pearson Centre.
