50-50 Charity Raffle
The 50-50 Charity Raffle will be back this week, raising funds towards Careflight.
Careflight, an Eels Charity Partner, was established in 1986 and have offered a new kind of medical retrieval service in Australia. They believe that very sick patients who need to be moved between hospitals, and severely injured patients who need to be treated at the accident scene, should be attended by critical care specialists who can perform ‘physician only’ procedures.
Today, CareFlight treats and/or transports around 5,000 patients each year. Their doctors, nurses and paramedics use helicopters, turboprop aeroplanes and medi-jets to bring a hospital level of care to the critically ill and injured.
50-50 charity raffle tickets will be on sale throughout the precinct at ANZ Stadium from staff and charity volunteers dressed in 50-50 uniforms.
Every ticket sold will be electronically recorded and updated on ticket-seller iPads, on the 50-50 website and on the various screens throughout the stadium, so members and fans can monitor the draw and watch the total prize pool grow in real time.
Visit the 50-50 Charity Raffle volunteers who will be roaming the ANZ Stadium precinct or at their 50-50 booths located at Gates B & K.
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).
