(REGINA, March 16, 2015) For the past 29 years, the Great Saskatchewan Red Cross Lottery has helped people across the province affected by disaster. Tickets for the lottery are on sale now and can be purchased by calling toll-free 1-800-667-9941.
 
The people of Saskatchewan just love the Great Saskatchewan Red Cross Lottery,” said Monika Zmetana, provincial gaming coordinator for the Canadian Red Cross. “Each year we have new purchasers, but we also have people who buy again and again. In fact we have a few who have bought tickets since the beginning.”
 
This year’s Grand Prize draws include $100,000 cash, a $10,000 dream vacation, and another $10,000 cash prize. The final deadline to purchase tickets is June 15, 2015.
 
“All it takes is one toll-free call to 1-800-667-9941 for your chance to win some amazing prizes and help the Red Cross reach the most vulnerable people in Saskatchewan,”
 said Zmetana. “All proceeds stay in Saskatchewan to support local Red Cross programs such as responding to personal and natural disasters, and bullying prevention education.”
 
The first deadline is midnight on April 22 for the VIP draw of $25,000 cash and three $5,000 travel vouchers from Marlin Travel. The Early Bird deadline is June 3 for $50,000 cash prize, and three $5,000 travel vouchers.
