50/50 raffle in support of housing and shelter charities is back, with up to $10,000 to be wonTickets are now available for the CREB® REALTOR® Community Foundation's fall 50/50 Cash Raffle, with proceeds going to local non-profit organizations that provide housing and shelter to those who need it most.
Powered by Calgary-and-area Realtors, the foundation supports local non-profits to create new housing, keep people housed and improve housing quality.
Earlier this year, the foundation awarded its Legacy Grant to non-profit real estate developer and property manager HomeSpace Society to support its Sierra Place project, which will see a downtown office tower converted into affordable housing units.
Other recipients of foundation grants include Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta, Inn from the Cold, Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta, Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter, Discovery House Family Violence Prevention Society and Emma Maternity House Society.
Raffle ticket sales end Oct. 10, with the winner drawn and announced on Oct. 11. The winner will take home a minimum cash prize of $4,000, but as much as $10,000 could be up for grabs.
Participants must reside in Alberta and be 18 years of age or older. Tickets can currently be purchased in the following increments: one for $10, four for $20, 20 for $50, or 100 for $100, with a limited number of tickets available at each price tier.
