A prize awarding ceremony was held on Tuesday, at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), for winners of the Sanwathsara Wasana lottery that was introduced in January 19, in celebration of Development Lottery Board's (DLB) 30th anniversary.

The total value of the prizes amounted to more than Rs. 57 million and this was reported as the lottery which had earned the highest income for the DLB in Sri Lanka's lottery history.

"This year, we are planning to remit Rs. two billion to the President's fund. When comparing last year's fund and the year before that, we have accumulated nearly Rs. 1.65 billion in 2012 and Rs. 1.37 billion in 2011," Anura Jayarathne, Deputy General Manager (Marketing), DLB, stated.

The DLB Trust 1983 had been integrated to raise funds for the Mahapola Higher Educational Trust Fund and financially help needy university student's to continue their education in their respective fields. The contribution from the President's Fund towards various social welfare activities that includes aid for health, education, recreation, religious and cultural areas, makes a huge difference.

Prizes were awarded by Chief Guest Deputy Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. Sarath Amunugama.
