Exeter Lions Club brings back 50-50 draw
Winning ticket to be drawn on April 16, 2020; You can also purchase your ticket through electronic transfer this year
The Exeter Lions Club held its first 50-50 draw, for community projects supported by the Conservation Dinner, last year (2019). The raffle was such a success the club is bringing the idea back in 2020. Raffle tickets are available now.
There are only 1,000 tickets printed and they are only $10 each. If all tickets are sold, the cash prize could be as high as $5,000.
For the first time, people will also be able can buy 50-50 tickets through e-transfers as well as from Lions Club members. If you would like to buy your ticket this way, contact Lion Paul Anstett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Buying a 50-50 ticket by e-transfer is a way to support community projects while still practicing safe social distancing.
“We are pleased to bring back the 50-50 draw as one more way we can help our local communities,” said Craig Glavin, President of the Exeter Lions Club. “The chance to win a big prize and be able to help your community at the same time makes this truly a win-win.”
The Conservation Dinner Committee has decided to postpone the 2020 Dinner until autumn but this will not affect the 50-50 draw. The Exeter Lions Club will continue to draw a 50-50 winner on April 16, 2020 as previously scheduled.
Conservation Dinner Committee Chair Dave Frayne thanked the Exeter Lions Club for bringing back this additional way to support parks and recreation and conservation projects in the community.
“The Lions Club has been Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation’s partner on the Conservation Dinner for 30 years and in addition to their hard work on the Dinner they are also helping support community improvements with the 50-50 raffle draw was well,” he said.
The Conservation Dinner is a community success story that has raised more than $1.2 million in net proceeds in support of parks and recreation, trails, family-friendly fishing derby, nature education, and other projects in local communities in an area from Exeter to Port Franks to Bayfield and all points in between.
