The 3,500-square-foot house – built by Bridlewood Homes, designed by 12/26 Design Co. and furnished by Modern Living London – features five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and a three-vehicle garage. It is valued at $1.4 million.

The 1,320-square-foot Port Stanley condo, built by Wastell Homes in Kokomo Beach Club at 409-100 The Promenade, features three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a stunning view of a golf course.

Then there’s the cash prize – the most popular option for past Dream Lottery winners – plus plenty of other prizes including travel packages, a backyard makeover and a 50-50 draw that raised more than $1.1 million last year.

Grand prize and 50/50 winners are scheduled to be announced Thursday, June 27, but the date could be moved up if all Dream Lottery tickets are sold by the bonus or early bird deadline, the lottery says.

Since its inception in 1996, the fundraiser has collected $59 million for London’s Children’s Health Foundation, London Health Sciences Foundation and the St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation to pay for projects not funded by the province, including equipment and medical research.

“And that money has stayed local. It has gone directly into better serving our patients,” said Scott Fortnum, president and chief executive of the Children’s Health Foundation.
