Charitable organizations will receive a donation in exchange for providing volunteers to sell the 50/50 tickets. Groups will receive a base pay of $6,000 PLUS a commission of 20% over $100,000 total sales! The more your volunteer group sells, the more your charitable group will receive!
*Please note that these proceeds may only be used for programs currently approved by Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.
Back by popular demand, groups will be reimbursed up to $1,500 to cover bussing costs to and from Rexall Place. Get all your volunteers to Rexall Place on time and don’t worry about the parking!

Effective January 27, 2015, it will now be easier for Oilers fans to claim their 50/50 prize! The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation has amended raffle rules to allow 50/50 winners until 4pm, 2 business days after the game to claim their prize! The previous rules had allowed 10 minutes from the time the number was called for a winner to claim their 50/50 prize. The new raffle rules will allow a winner more time to claim their prize. Prizes not claimed on or before the Prize Claim Expiry Date (two business days from the Raffle date), will be added to one or more prize pools at the discretion of the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, with AGLC approval. This means that any unclaimed 50/50 prizes will be added to the pot at a future Oilers game. In the event the 50/50 prize from the last game of the year is unclaimed, the 50/50 pot will be carried forward to an Oilers game in the following year.
