The 1.6 million dollar Grand Prize includes a 4,563 sq. ft. fully furnished home in Manotick, a 2013 Lincoln MKS AWD , free house cleaning for a year and 5 thousand dollars in Farm Boy groceries. “I was at home making Kraft Dinner when my Mom called me first and said ‘did you just win the CHEO Dream Home and I’m like no way’,  said Holmes.  

Holmes toured his new home on Wednesday afternoon.  Holmes is a single parent with a 4 year old girl who was born with cystic fibrosis.
