From recovery to rescue, B.C.’s front-line workers and first responders – including our doctors, nurses and health care teams at Vancouver General Hospital, and our firefighters across the province – are always ready to come to the aid of the critically ill and severely injured people.
Now, more than ever, our hometown heroes need your support.
The 2022 Hometown Heroes Lottery supports VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, raising essential funds for specialized adult health services and research at VGH and UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, and Vancouver Community Health Services.
“The medical teams at VGH, UBC Hospital and many other health care centres under our umbrella – which support all British Columbians – are empowered to offer world-class health care thanks to the generous support of the Hometown Heroes Lottery,” says Angela Chapman, President and CEO of VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.
“Lottery funds go towards purchasing cutting-edge, life-saving medical equipment and technology and puts it in the hands of our specialized health care teams. These funds today help support the future of health care – for all of us.”
Ticket purchases also support the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, which provides burn survivor support services and programs, such as the annual Burn Camp for young burn survivors, and resiliency programs for firefighters.
“As the pandemic has continued to challenge our fundraising efforts, we want to thank all British Columbians who have purchased tickets for the Hometown Heroes Lottery. Over the past two years we have taken our survivor support programs virtual to continue to serve burn survivors of all ages,” says Jeff Sauvé, President of the BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund.
“We depended on funds raised from the Hometown Heroes Lottery to keep these vital mental health programs running. As we transition back to in-person events, we are hopeful for the future of these programs and are excited for Burn Camp to return to Squamish this summer.”
