Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation team up on New Millionaire Lottery

The Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation are proud to announce the Touchdown for Kids Millionaire Lottery.

The lottery, which will make one lucky person an instant millionaire, is expected to raise significant funds for both Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders created the Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation to enhance and further its community efforts across the province. The Foundation’s mission is to empower youth and communities through the passion of Rider Nation. Through the Touchdown for Kids Millionaire Lottery, the Foundation will fund amateur sport, education, health and wellness initiatives for the province’s youth.

“This province and Rider Nation give us so much, which is why it’s so important for us to continue to find ways to give back to them,” said Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation Board Chair Craig Reynolds. “We are excited to partner with Jim Pattison’s Children’s Hospital Foundation not only to create Saskatchewan’s newest millionaire through the Touchdown for Kids Millionaire Lottery but to provide important funding for the children’s hospital as well as kids and communities across Saskatchewan.”

Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is on a mission to raise funds for the enhancement of maternal and children’s health care in Saskatchewan and the new provincial maternal and children’s hospital, which is scheduled to open September 29, 2019.

“Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is thrilled to be teaming up with the Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation in a made-in-Saskatchewan partnership that will allow one lucky winner to build whatever home, cabin or dream that he or she wants,” said Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.  “Together, we will positively strengthen youth programs across the province and support the round-the-clock medical care needed for those that require Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. The proceeds from this exciting new lottery will help provide world-class equipment and new provincial maternal and pediatric programming connecting Saskatchewan to build healthier futures for our babies, children and families.”

The Touchdown for Kids Millionaire Lottery will make one person an instant millionaire, but there are thousands of other prizes available including 13 brand new vehicles, six luxury vacation packages and 41 unique and exciting Roughrider experiences. An early bird prize of $500,000 will be awarded to one lucky person who purchases before November 25, 2019.
