Charitable Organizations

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation proudly supports registered charitable organizations in Northern Alberta through 50/50 draws that take place during Edmonton Oilers home games.

Ticket pricing is one (1) ticket for $5.00, three (3) tickets for $10.00, and ten (10) tickets for $20.00 and can be purchased until the middle of the second intermission. One lucky fan will take home 50 per cent of the pot, but the other winners are the charitable organizations, minor hockey groups and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation who benefit and help make our community a better place to live.

50/50 Ticket Information:
The winning ticket number will be announced over the public address system in Rogers Place during the third period of each of the 50/50 Licensed Games. In the case of a discrepancy between the announced number and the actual number appearing on the drawn ticket, the actual number appearing on the drawn ticket will be considered to be the valid winning ticket.

If the prize is not claimed during the Game, the winning ticket number will be posted on the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation website at www.oilersfoundation.ca.

The holder of the winning ticket will have until 4:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) two (2) business days from the time of the announcement to present the winning ticket to the 50/50 Licensee.
