Registration to win flat opens on June 15

Property developers who are offering a flat as a prize in a lucky draw designed to boost Hong Kong’s Covid-19 inoculation rate say people can sign up from June 15.

Permanent adult residents who have received two doses of vaccine by September 1 can register for the chance to win a one-bedroom flat valued at HK$10.8 million at the Grand Central development in Kwun Tong.

Sino Group’s Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation and Chinese Estates Holdings say they will also pay the stamp duty, registration and legal fees for the 47th floor flat, as well as the management fee for the first year.

People will be able to register for the lucky draw on a new website launched by the organisers, or do so in person at different malls across the city.

The winner – along with those of 20 pre-paid or credit cards loaded with a value of HK$100,000 – will be announced on September 8.

Separately, the Association of Banks said its members are organising another lucky draw for fully vaccinated people to win spending credits or vouchers worth HK$100,000 each.

It said more details will be provided later, but both permanent and non-permanent residents will be eligible to win the spending credits – the same arrangement adopted in the property developers’ lucky draw.

Cathay Pacific is also holding a lucky draw for fully vaccinated local residents – with the top prize being the chance to host a private party on board an Airbus. The winner’s companions will also need to be fully vaccinated.

The airline is also offering up to a million “Asia Miles” in its frequent flyer programme to 100 people in its lucky draw – participants will need to have had both doses of the Covid vaccine by the end of August.

The airline said registration details will be provided later.
