The Lightning Foundation will once again be hosting a 50/50 Raffle presented by Moffitt Cancer Center during all home games throughout the 2017-18 hockey season.
The pot of the 50/50 Raffle is split in half, with half going to the lucky winner and the other half going to Lightning Foundation.

We thank all of our fans for purchasing tickets and helping the Foundation to make a positive impact on our local Tampa Bay community in a host of different ways.
