In 2016 the Fair runs August 20th through September 5th, and OpenRoad is proud to be the exclusive vehicle provider of the Fair’s signature event, the PNE Prize Home Lottery program. Look for OpenRoad vehicle displays at shopping centres across the Lower Mainland this summer as part of the lottery mall tour and the Fair in September. PRIZE HOME HISTORY For over 80 years the prize home draw has been an annual tradition since the first home debuted in 1934. The original house was an 800-sq.ft. dream bungalow valued at $5,000 that came with a free lot on East Vancouver’s Renfrew Street. Lottery tickets cost 25 cents back in the day, and if you were the lucky winner, you also received a $500 furniture package from Eaton’s department store. Fast forward to the 2015 PNE prize home, and the lottery’s prize home featured an open-concept and environmentally friendly, 3,080 sq-ft house situated on a lake-view lot in Naramata. Valued at $2.1 million, the home yielded quite a return for the winner who purchased lottery tickets for $25 for 5, or $50 for 15 tickets. The PNE’s annual prize home lottery program supports a variety of non-revenue producing programs spanning agriculture, community, arts and a large number of other local programs.
