very year since 1950 the Vancouver Lions Club has happily sent one lucky couple to a great vacation in Honolulu, Hawaii. And at the same time, every year since 1950, the Club's Two Tickets To Paradise raffle has raised several thousands of dollars for the Vancouver Lions Foundation that helps pay for eye exams, eyeglasses and other vision assistance for those in our community who can not afford them.
The winner of the Two Tickets To Paradise rraffle wins a free, Hawaiian Holiday vacation to Honolulu— round trip airfare plus 8 days and 7 nights lounging around the world famous Sheraton Waikiki Beach courtesy of the Vancouver Lions Club.
NOTE: The drawing for the February 2023 “Two Tickets To Paradise” raffle has been suspended due to travel restrictions arising from the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. This is a temporary suspension.
Proceeds from the Two Tickets To Paradise raffle help people in our community who can not afford to pay for their sight and hearing care needs. The money raised goes a very long way! So, while we congratulate our winner, we also say “Thank You” to everyone who participated in this annual fundraising event; It is each of you that make the Vancouver Lions Foundation's sight and hearing work possible, and every Vancouver Lion truly appreciates your help!
The next raffle drawing for Two Tickets To Paradise is scheduled to be held on February 15, 2024. Current plans are that no more than 3,000 tickets will be printed for the next raffle! Odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 3,000 for each raffle ticket you get— get 5 and reduce your odds to 1 in 600! And once again, the winner will receive round trip airfare plus 8 days and 7 nights at the world famous Sheraton Waikiki Hotel on Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii. (Okay, here is the obligatory legal stuff: Prizes, rules and the conduct of the raffle are subject to change in the sole discretion of the Vancouver Lions Club).
