With no fans in the stands for sporting events because of COVID-19, local teams need to find creative ways to generate revenue. Online 50/50 draws have become quite popular. The Lethbridge Bulls launched quarterly draws, and the most recent winner took home $5,700. Bulls General Manager Kevin Kvame says people should support as many local fundraisers as they can.
“We’re encouraging people to support all the 50/50s if they have the ability to do so… a few bucks here, a few bucks there,” says Kvame “I imagine a lot of (the fans) miss the ballgames, and the opportunity to purchase them at the ball games”.
The draw will be held on Facebook live March 31. You can purchase tickets at https://www.bullsbaseball.com/ or call 403-320-2025.
