The BC Football Conference Okanagan Sun have launched a new fundraising effort.
The team recently announced the introduction of a season-long 50-50 draw similar to those run by professional sports teams across the country over the past several months.
The raffle is being held to help offset losses incurred as a result of losing last season to COVID.
Monies raised will help with basic team expenses, including travel, head coach remuneration and medical and safety equipment.
Tickets are available online, and cost:
- Single Ticket for $10
- 3-Ticket Pack for $25
- 8-Ticket Pack for $50
- 20-Ticket Pack for $100
The raffle is only open to those 19 and over who are residents of B.C. They can only be purchased in the province.
The sales deadline is halftime of the clubs final regular season home game, Oct. 16.
The club says the winning number will be drawn using random number generating software.
The winning number will be announced in the fourth quarter of the Oct. 16 game.
There are 35,200 tickets available.
The raffle was initiated by newly-elected team president Parker Evans, who has a background in marketing, specifically within the digital space.
