At each Eels home game at ANZ Stadium in 2018, the 50-50 Charity Raffle will raise money for the Parramatta Eels Charity Partner for that selected game. The total proceeds of all 50-50 tickets sold at each game go into a prize pool, with 50% of the prize pool going to the lucky winner of the random draw and 50% being donated to the nominated Charity Partner (-10% administration fee from 50-50).
In Round 11, when the Parramatta Eels took on the New Zealand Warriors at ANZ Stadium on Friday 18th May, the Club worked alongside the Blue & Gold Charity Partner Northcott, to assist with the ongoing work they do within the community.
Northcott is one of Australia's largest not-for-profit disability service providers that works with customers to realise their potential. Providing services from metropolitan and regional locations throughout NSW and the ACT, they provide support to over 14,000 people with disability and their families and carers each year.
Thanks to the generous support from the Members and fans in attendance at the Round seven game, the total prize pool reached $4,180 Northcott received $1,672 in funds thanks to the generous support.
Vincent Maquinad was the lucky recipient of the random draw, walking away with $2,090.
In the upcoming round thirteen clash against the Newcastle Knights at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 2nd June the 50-50 Charity Raffle will be raising funds for Careflight.
