Announcing the 2020 Hometown Heroes Lottery

Our Hometown Heroes need support during this time of need. We’re all in this together.


VANCOUVER, BC (April 22, 2020) – VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund (Burn Fund) has announced that the tickets for the 2020 Hometown Heroes Lottery are now on sale until midnight, July 23, 2020. Hometown Heroes lottery grand prize homes are located in Vancouver, White Rock, Courtenay, Abbotsford, Cultus Lake, Sooke, Penticton and Kelowna.

During this pandemic, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the Burn Fund would like to thank our front line workers, first responders, doctors, nurses, and all of our health care heroes. Now more than ever, these heroes need our support.

Hometown Heroes Lottery ticket purchases raise funds for the most urgent hospital needs and support first responder resilience programs. Proceeds also support specialized adult health services and research for British Columbians and drive innovation and sustainable health care at VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and Vancouver Community Health Services. The Hometown Heroes Lottery also supports programs for burn survivors.


​“In recent weeks our front line health care staff have devoted themselves to preparing to care for COVID-19 patients. They are also ensuring that people can continue to access care to meet their urgent medical needs,” says Angela Chapman, President and CEO, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.​ “For years, lottery funds have helped ensure that medical teams in B.C. have the tools and equipment they need to save lives​. On behalf of the Foundation, I’d like to thank everyone who supports the Hometown Heroes Lottery, allowing our health care heroes to be here for us.”


“Your support of the Hometown Heroes Lottery has never been more important. Our fire fighter hometown heroes are working so hard to keep their communities safe, while healthcare heroes are in hospitals saving lives. Not every hero wears a cape. Some wear turnout gear and others wear stethoscopes,” says Sheila Kern, Executive Director of the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.
