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 25, when the Parramatta Eels took on the Roosters at ANZ Stadium on Saturday September 1, the Club worked alongside Blue & Gold Charity Partner the Nathan Gremmo Community Fund .

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.
