TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning and the National Hockey League are partnering to host a multi-day 50/50 raffle for the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend in Tampa. The nine-day raffle is currently live on www.Bolts5050.com and will end on Sunday, January 28 during the Honda NHL All-Star Game.
Fans can purchase their 50/50 raffle tickets at any time during the nine-day period via the website or throughout the Honda NHL All-Star Weekend at the NHL Pre-Game, inside AMALIE Arena during the GEICO NHL All-Star Skills Competition and Honda NHL All-Star Game. The raffle will be offered throughout the state of Florida, except the following counties: De Soto, Charlotte, Glades, Okeechobee, Indian River, Saint Lucie, Martin, Lee, Hendry, Palm Beach, Collier, Broward, Monroe and Miami-Dade.
The pot of the 50/50 will be split in half, with half going to one lucky winner and the other half going to support the NHL Legacy Project at the Vinik Family Boys & Girls Club in the Clair Mel community. The development of this project will help engage youth in a safe environment, promote positive behaviors through sports and fitness activities, encourage team-building and introduce the sport of hockey to kids. The new rink is projected to work with more than 10,000 children from the local clubs as well as the adjacent elementary and middle school.
