Jenny Ford has sold Lotto for Life tickets and provided prizes for the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation at her Cook’s Nook store for seven years.

“While there are several hospital-type fundraisers, I like to know this money stays local and we all benefit,” she said.

Cook’s Nook is located at Country Club Centre and Lotto for Life tickets can be purchased for $100 each. Only 5,000 tickets will be sold and prizes are valued at more than $240,000, including cars, trips and the grand prize of $100,000.

All proceeds help fund the purchase of essential equipment for the new, $36.9-million emergency department expansion at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Lotto players must buy their ticket before midnight March 1 to be eligible for the March 11 early bird draw at Nanaimo North Town Centre. The final draw takes place 1 p.m. April 16 at Country Club Centre.

To purchase tickets, please call 250-755-7640. To view a list of ticket outlets, please go to
