The last two tickets for the 2015 Dream Home have been sold. The Dream Home lottery, in partnership with Canadian Home Builders Association Central Interior,  raises funds for the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA, with prize draws July 7 starting at 9 a.m. The event will be televised on CFJC TV7.

"What makes this project work year after year is the cooperation and volunteer support within this community. From the land developer, suppliers and trades people to the businesses that donate prizes along and all the volunteers selling tickets, it's the people of Kamloops coming together to make great things happen." ...
