Is there a limit on how many tickets I can buy?

Do I have to buy tickets before every payday?

No! When you sign up, you will receive one number for each ticket purchased. The total amount you’ve selected will be deducted from every pay until the end of the lottery period (August 26, 2021) or until you notify us that you would like to cancel your participation.

Where does my money go?

Your contributions to the staff lottery will be part of the pool of funding established by all participants’ ticket purchases. Every payday, a winner will be announced and that individual will take home 50% of the total pooled funds. The other 50% will directly support the greatest priority needs of Women’s College Hospital – including equipment needs, research, clinical programs and more.
