COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
50/50


Charitable Organizations

Applications for the 2016-17 NHL season are now open!

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation proudly supports registered charitable organizations in Northern Alberta through 50/50 draws that take place during Edmonton Oilers home games.

Tickets are $5 each, three for $10 or 10 for $20 and can be purchased until the middle of the second intermission. One lucky fan will take home 50 per cent of the pot, but the other winners are the charitable organizations, minor hockey groups and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation who benefit and help make our community a better place to live.

If you’re a registered charity interested in participating in the 2016-17 season’s 50/50 program, please see the information below.
