Lottery prizes up for grabs

The big day is near and one lucky person will walk away $100,000 richer thanks to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation’s Lotto for Life.

The final draw for close to 50 prizes, including trips, two 2011 vehicles and the $100,000 grand prize takes place 1 p.m. Saturday (April 16) at Country Club Centre.

Proceeds from the lottery go toward the emergency department expansion at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

The foundation has pledged $4 million to purchase essential equipment for the $36.9 million expansion project.
