50-50 Charity Raffle

The 50/50 Charity Raffle is back this week and in Round 19 we are showing our support for the Men of League Foundation.

The Men of League Foundation cares for the men, women and children of the rugby league family and provides financial and emotional assistance to those in need. In 2018, Men of League grants have supported wellbeing recipients by covering costs associated with medical expenses, modified equipment, car conversions and utility bills. Wellbeing recipients are facing a range of tough circumstances including those living in hardship often with disabilities or suffering from illness or injury. Men of League grants provide significant relief to families involved at all levels of rugby league.

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).
