Two charities based in the eastern Fraser Valley are among four that have teamed up for a 50/50 online lottery in which the prize could be up to $1 million.
The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) and Zajac Ranch join the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC and Variety – The Children’s Charity in The Big 50/50 Lottery, which runs from now until April 15.

The draw takes place live April 16 at noon, with the winner taking half of the jackpot prize pool.
