The mystery prize for a draw being conducted to raise money for Matthew’s House in Abbotsford was revealed Saturday at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

The $8,000 prize, which had been hidden under a large box at Sevenoaks throughout May, was revealed to be an ELF solar-electric hybrid vehicle.

The draw will be made Sept. 12 during the Matthew’s House Giving Gala at Mt. Lehman Winery.

Meanwhile, Natalie Bilson was the winner of a $450 grand prize package that was drawn on Saturday before the mystery prize was revealed.

Bilson won tickets to Gallery 7 Theatre’s 2015-16 season, a detailing package from Magnuson Ford, a Blackwood Home Hardware gift card, a hand-crafted blown glass vase, and 10 entries for the draw for the ELF vehicle.

Second- and third-place prizes were also drawn, each receiving 10 tickets for the Sept. 12th draw. Those prizes were won by Mariette Perreault and Karamjit Khaira.

Matthew’s House is a respite facility for children with complex health-care needs. It is located on the Dave Lede Campus of Care on Marshall Road next to Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

The Giving Gala is hosted every two years. Event details will be released soon at mattshouse.ca. Tickets for the Sept. 12th draw are available at the Communitas office, #103 2776 Bourquin Crescent West.
