In 2017 Full House Lottery made a change from giving away three grand prize homes to two with the third being sold by the Royal Alex and U of A foundations to provide even more money for their respective causes.
When Ron Dickson and Robby Halabi of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada first met with the Royal Alex and University Hospital Foundations to share their views on the sale of the 2017 Full House Lottery Grand Prize Two home they knew the sale of the home would mean more than any other sale they had handled in the past.
In 2017 Full House Lottery which raises critical funds for the Royal Alex and University Hospitals made a change from giving away three grand prize homes to two with the third being sold by the foundations to provide even more money for their respective causes.
What the foundations didn’t know was that the sale of the third home wouldn’t be the only additional source of funds to support each hospital.
Once the sale of the home was in the books Dickson and Halabi decided to make their own contribution to the cause.
“We were so thrilled to hear that Ron and Robby would be donating to our hospitals,” shared Andrew Otway, President and CEO of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation. “Their gift of $15,000 will go a long way in supporting the purchase of a PET|CT Scanner at the Royal Alex and the stroke ambulance at the University Hospital. We couldn’t be more grateful for Ron’s generosity.”
The Royal Alex and University Hospitals would like to share their sincere gratitude for the Sotheby’s Ron Dickson and Robby Halabi’s incredibly generous gift that will truly make a difference for so many patients in the City of Edmonton and beyond.
This year marks the lottery’s 25th year and with it Full House Lottery will be offering its largest grand prize ever and more than $5.2 million in prizes to be won overall.
