For the first time ever, the Vancouver Canucks are holding their own 50/50 raffle during a road game.
Building on the success of their online 50/50 program, which allows fans in British Columbia to participate in the same raffle as fans at Rogers Arena, the Canucks announced a new draw for their upcoming five-game road trip.

It’s going to be a multi-game raffle, with funds accumulated during the Canucks’ upcoming road trip, beginning tonight in Tampa Bay. Fans can buy tickets from now until January 15 at noon, following the last game of their road trip in Winnipeg.
The Canucks are guaranteeing that the jackpot will be at least $50,000, which is higher than all three of their in-game preseason jackpots in September.
Funds raised from the 50/50 raffles help the Canucks for Kids Fund support charities across British Columbia, including the Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Last year, Canucks 50/50 raffles generated $4.1 million for charity.
Raffle tickets cost $5 for three, $10 for seven, $20 for 50, or $50 for 150, and can be purchased online.
