Fifty percent of each game’s raffle ticket sales will go to the game’s designated non-profit beneficiary, while the other 50 percent of money raised will go to the winning raffle ticket buyer (up to $10,000).
Pricing for the 50/50 Raffle tickets is as follows: one ticket for $2, three tickets for $5 and seven tickets for $10. Fans can purchase raffle tickets at any of six raffle locations inside the Xcel Energy Center: Section 102, Section 118, C10, C30, Section 206 and Section 217.
50/50 Raffle tickets will be sold starting when doors open before the start of each home game through the end of the second intermission. The winning 50/50 Raffle ticket will be selected in a public drawing at the beginning of the third period in Section 102.
The Wild are the first Minnesota professional sports team to offer a 50/50 Raffle. The team worked closely with the Minnesota Gambling Control Board and City of St. Paul officials in the development of this fundraiser.
The first five 50/50 Raffles will benefit the Minnesota Wild Foundation. After Jan. 1, 2010, charitable organizations such as Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, HopeKids and Minnesota Hockey will be the 50/50 Raffle beneficiaries.
Great seats are still available for all Minnesota Wild home games, including tonight’s game against the Colorado Avalanche. For more information on single game ticket packages visit www.wild.com/ticketpacks
