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.
This year's winner of Two Tickets To Paradise was drawn February 20, 2020; And the winner is: Dave Kelly of Vancouver, Washington!
So if you are not Dave Kelly, we are very sorry but you did not have the winning ticket for the 2020 Two Tickets To Paradise drawing. You will have to wait until February 18, 2021 to get another chance at a, free, Hawaiian Holiday vacation to Honolulu— round trip airfare plus 8 days and 7 nights lounging around the world famous Waikiki Beach courtesy of the Vancouver Lions Club. But fear not: Vancouver Lions will soon be out and about with a fresh set of tickets for “Two Tickets To Paradise”!
NOTE: The drawing for the 2021 and 2022 “Two Tickets To Paradise” raffle were suspended due to travel restrictions arising from the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. This is a temporary suspension. A new drawing date will be announced as soon as possible— (but we anticipate there will be a 2022–2023 raffle with the winning ticket to be drawn the third Thursday of February, 2023).
Proceeds from the Two Tickets To Paradise raffle will 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!
Once again, we plan on printing no more than 3,000 tickets for the next raffle! Your 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).
