2016 HSC Millionaire Lottery Home Now Open for Viewing and Visits

Posted: October 6, 2016

October 6, 2016 (WINNIPEG, MB) –This year’s Health Sciences Centre (HSC) Millionaire Lottery dream home – offering luxury living in Crescentwood – is now fully finished and furnished, and open to the public for viewing. This character home, located at 62 Harvard Avenue, completely renovated by Areté Design Build Renovate Inc. is a true classic re-imagined.

When Zoé Austin and her team at Areté imagined their renovation of this dreamy grand prize makeover home, the goal was clear – take its heritage and bring it into the twenty-first century. To mix the best of before with the modern magic of tomorrow. "We’ve kept the overall shape of the original home: two-story, hip roof, interesting facade,” she says. "I’ve gone the route of a Southern California mansion, with some metal and cream finishes, and much larger windows for natural light. I’m coining the term ‘SoCal Traditional’ on this one – bright and airy, but still classic and warm.”

With three other Grand Prize options to choose from – a beautiful home by Maric Homes in Charleswood’s Ridgewood West, an ocean cottage on Vancouver Island and the biggest cash option ever at $1.1 million – the brand-new HSC Millionaire Lottery has choices for everyone. Lottery proceeds support the Health Sciences Centre, the heart of the healthcare system in Manitoba, serving all who need state-of-the-art care and research. The HSC Millionaire Lottery is truly a win-win for ticket buyers who support patients and health care and get a chance to win a host of amazing prizes.

"Since 2008, almost $11 million dollars of net lottery revenues have gone directly to support the projects such as the Kleysen Institute for Advanced Medicine and the Centre for Surgical Innovation (CSI),” says Jonathon Lyon, President and CEO of the Health Sciences Centre Foundation. "These facilities are home to some of the most advanced health care and research technology in the world. With two advanced operating suites served by an MRI which can enter the operating rooms while the patient is still in surgery, the Centre for Surgical Innovation will allow for improved care and advanced research into areas such as head trauma and concussion,” he adds. "With the new HSC Millionaire Lottery, ticket buyers have the opportunity to win some truly wonderful prizes while supporting patients at Manitoba’s flagship hospital. We continue to be grateful to everyone who supports the HSC Foundation and our work.”

The chance to win a designer makeover home in the heart of one of Manitoba’s most desirable neighbourhoods is something unique and special for hospital lotteries in the province. The neighbourhood has everything one could want and need – shops, restaurants and bakeries, great schools, fantastic walkability, and plenty of green space. Enderton Park (also known as Peanut Park) and Munson Park are steps from the front door and the river walk is close too. With all the modern touches, technology wows, and innovative design of a show home, plus the in-city convenience and coziness of a livable and lovely family home, this is truly a grand prize you can’t miss.

The choice is yours – and each Grand Prize is a winner! One Grand Prize winner will get to choose from four amazing options:

  1. A luxury redesigned Crescentwood home package including furnishings, a BMW and CASH; or

  2. A  brand new Maric home in Charleswood’s Ridgewood West with tons of extras, including a trip to Bora Bora and Tahiti, a Nissan Murano and CASH; or
