EDMONTON, AB - The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) online 50/50 raffle presented by RE/MAX is set to return to Alberta alongside the highly-anticipated 2020-21 Oilers season.
The record-setting online 50/50 raffle will give fans another chance to win big during every Oilers home and away game this season. The 50/50 raffle will also raise important dollars for the EOCF to reinvest in the community.
Oilers fans showed tremendous generosity and passion for the RE/MAX EOCF online 50/50 raffle when it launched on August 1, 2020, and continued that support in September during the Stanley Cup Final, creating a community legacy for Edmonton's NHL Hub City hosting.
Buying an online 50/50 ticket is a simple process, similar to most online purchases. Tickets sales open at 9:00 AM MST and end at 10:00 PM MST on the same day. The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) raffle license number is 570159.
The winning ticket number will be drawn at approximately 10:30 PM MST the day of the raffle and will be posted at EdmontonOilers.com/5050 shortly after the draw.
Tickets can be purchased by individuals 18 years or older, located within Alberta's provincial borders at the time of purchase. All ticket sales are final and ticket buyers will receive a receipt via email after purchasing, which will list all numbers associated with the purchased tickets.
Funds from the 50/50 program are split between the winner and the EOCF, which will in turn reinvest or partner with groups to make a difference in the community. The EOCF will be guided by helping those in Edmonton's downtown who need the most assistance, and by creating opportunities for all children in the community to play sports, in particular hockey, regardless of race, gender or socio-economic status.
