Soldiers’ 50/50 Raffle Reaches Largest Jackpot Ever

Soldiers’ Foundation President & CEO Mark Riczu presenting the $33,570 grand prize cheque to June 2021 winner Anita Perrault, Soldiers' 50/50's biggest winner to date.

The Soldiers’ 50/50 Raffle will give away its biggest jackpot ever on September 1st, having surpassed their previous high of $33,570.

Deemed the “Soldiers’ Summer of Winning,” the summer-long raffle has one remaining early bird draw this Thursday for $1,000, with grand prize ticket sales closing on Wednesday, August 31st at 11:59 p.m.

The 50/50 draw was started by Soldiers’ Foundation in May 2021, and has been a huge success, especially with reaching people who had not previously donated to or been involved with Soldiers’.

“It has introduced nearly 5,000 new people to the Soldiers’ Foundation,” said Soldiers’ Director, Finance & Operations, Lisa Stanley, “and is creating greater awareness of Soldiers’ and our community.”

She continued, “As hospital equipment is not government funded, it’s up to the Foundation and the community to raise funds to support much needed equipment such as the MRI and CT Scanner. The 50/50 has allowed us to donate over $300,000 towards equipment items such as these, ones we wouldn’t have otherwise.”

The Soldiers’ 50/50 Raffle has also handed out over $300,000 in prize money to winners across the community and the province, and will be adding to that total when they draw the grand prize winning number on September 1st.
