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 19, when the Parramatta Eels took on the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Thursday 19 July, the Club worked alongside the Blue & Gold Charity Partner The Men of League Foundation to assist with the ongoing work they do within the community.
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.
Thanks to the generous support from the Members and fans in attendance at the Round nineteen game, the total prize pool reached $3,970.
The Men of League Foundation received $1,588 in funds.
Paul Crawford was the lucky recipient of the random draw, walking away with $1,985.00
In the upcoming round twenty-one clash against the Gold Coast Titans at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 4th August the 50-50 Charity Raffle will be raising funds for The Lisa Harnum Foundation.
