Princess Margaret big prize after another!

The Princess Margaret Lotteries had another extremely successful year, raising a record $24.8 million (net) through

our Welcome Home Sweepstakes and our Home Lottery.

“The people who support The Princess Margaret by purchasing lottery tickets are helping to create the largest single

source of private funding for cancer research in Canada,” says Christine Lasky, Vice-President of Strategic Initiatives

for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. “Knowing they can count on this funding year-over-year means that

our world-leading researchers can focus on conquering cancer and not on whether they have enough funding to

continue their work.”

Beating the odds

Unlike the odds for getting cancer (2

out of 5 Canadians will be diagnosed

with cancer at some point in their

lifetime), the odds for getting a

hole-in-one on any golf course

are roughly 1 in 13,000. But Glenn

Murray of Toronto achieved this

remarkable feat within the first 30

minutes of play at the second annual

Golf to Conquer Cancer. Even more

remarkable, he did it on the hole

that offered a hole-in-one prize

of a luxury car valued at just under

$100,000. What a day for someone

who almost didn’t make it to the


Glenn was a guest of Paul Bhullar,

the captain of the foursome from

International Freight Systems. Paul

was a lucky guest himself at Golf

to Conquer Cancer one year earlier.

He was part of the foursome that

travelled to Augusta for The Masters

which was one of the live auction

prizes at the event.

The presenting sponsor for Golf to

Conquer Cancer is Harry Rosen, a

brand synonymous with high quality

and outstanding service—attributes

that have been built into the golf

tournament as well. Golfers enjoy

great prize opportunities donated

by brand partners such as Ermenegildo

Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Samuelsohn

and many more who support cancer


Meet some of our happy prize winners!
