50-50 Charity Raffle
The 50/50 Charity Raffle is back this week and in Round 22 we are showing our support for the Nathan Gremmo Foundation.
The Gremmo Community Fund Inc. was established in 2008 as a facility to deal with the increasing number of community projects that the Gremmo Family had become involved with. In 2015 The Gremmo Community Fund Inc. altered its name to The Nathan Gremmo Community Fund Inc. to honour the legacy of Nathan Gremmo.
The Nathan Gremmo Community Fund established Jersey Day in 2015 to promote awareness of the Donate Life Network and Organ & Tissue Donation.
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).
