                A Guaranteed Millionaire … Will it be You?
            St. Boniface Hospital & Research Foundation Launches
       Manitoba’s Hospital Lottery of Choice - the 2009 MegaMillion Lotto

JANUARY 8, 2009 (WINNIPEG, MB) – The St. Boniface Hospital & Research Foundation today
announced it has changed the MegaMillion Lotto prizing structure to make the grand prize a guaranteed
$1 Million – the largest cash prize ever awarded in a Manitoba hospital lottery. Past MegaMillion Lottos
have given $300,000 grand prizes, with the chance to win $1 million. This year, one lucky ticket holder is
guaranteed to become an instant millionaire.

“The MegaMillion Lotto is going to make someone’s dreams come true,” says John Graham, Lottery
                                                                   th
Chair, St. Boniface Hospital & Research Foundation. “On March 18 , we’ll be introducing the first
Manitoba Hospital Lottery millionaire.” Graham says there are many other great prizes to be won in the
2009 MegaMillion Lotto, including a fabulous Early Bird Draw prize worth $100,000.
                                                                                       th
“MegaMillion tickets traditionally sell out fast, and with the Early Bird Draw on March 4 featuring a 2008
Porsche Boxster and $30,000 or a 2009 Mercedes SLK and $30,000 – or the choice of taking a $100,000
in cash, I would encourage people to get their tickets right away.”

A full listing of prizes for the Early Bird and Main Prize Draws can be found at
www.stbonifacemegamillion.ca.

Stuart Murray, President & CEO, St. Boniface Hospital & Research Foundation says there has already
been a positive response from the public.

“As Manitoba’s hospital lottery of choice, we know everyone loves big prizes, especially in these difficult
economic times, and naturally people like to have the cash option too. You can do a lot with $1 million –
but you can also do a lot with $100,000 or $50,000 which are other prize draws in this year’s
MegaMillion,” says Murray. “More importantly though, our lottery ticket purchasers are very loyal. They
buy tickets for a chance to win the prizes, but they also buy tickets because they want to support the
medical research and patient care at St. Boniface Hospital. I often hear people say that they would love to
win, but are happy just supporting the great work happening at St. Boniface Hospital.”

All proceeds raised with Foundation lotteries stays in Manitoba and is directly applied to life-saving
medical research and advancements in patient care at the St. Boniface Hospital, supporting initiatives in
cardiac care, diabetes, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and much more.

Tickets for the 2008 MegaMillion Lotto sold out in record time, just four weeks. The Foundation is
anticipating a similar rush of ticket purchasers this year, especially with the grand prize of a guaranteed
million dollars. One thing that hasn’t changed in the MegaMillion Lotto are the ticket prices - $100 each
or 3 for $250. Purchasers can order their tickets by fax (204-231-0041), phone (204-944-7150), or in
person at the Foundation office. Tickets purchased before February 27th will be entered in all the early
bird prize draws on March 4 as well as the March 18 main prize draws.
                                                                                                       …more




                                                     -1-
The odds of winning the guaranteed $1 million grand prize are 1 in 53,000 – the number of tickets set to
be printed. Odds increase with each ticket purchased. All winning tickets are reentered for subsequent
draws.

The St. Boniface Hospital & Research Foundation was founded in 1971 and is an integral part of the
St. Boniface Campus’ continuing threefold objectives of providing excellence in patient care,
education and research. As the primary fundraising organization for St. Boniface General Hospital,
the activities of the Foundation remain consistent with its mission of raising funds to provide quality
health care research as well as programs for improved quality of life and respect for the individual.
