Apr 14 2021, 8:13 am

The Toronto Blue Jays are giving away a huge 50/50 prize tonight.

As part of the first virtual 50/50 jackpot of the 2021 season, the Jays Care Foundation will give out a minimum of $500,000 when Toronto plays the New York Yankees tonight.

Sales are open through 10 pm, and all funds raised through the draw will support Ontario kids and families who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

New for this season, Toronto will be offering five “mega jackpots,” with proceeds going towards supporting children in different programs. Draws will take place for every home and away game.

Mega jackpot schedule:

March 9 to April 14: Supporting a safe return to community baseball diamonds
May 18-30: Challenger Baseball
June 11-24: Indigenous Rookie League
July 30 to August 12: Toronto Community Housing Rookie League
August 13-26: Girls At Bat

Last year’s season-opening draw for the team set an MLB record with a $1.197 million jackpot. Fans 18 years of age and older in Ontario can get their tickets at bluejays.com/5050.
