By Jason Friesen | April 6, 2022
The True North Youth Foundation (TNYF) will “sweeten” the Winnipeg Jets 50/50 pot with an additional $20,000 for the April 8 game vs. the Colorado Avalanche with funds raised going toward the Ukrainian relief efforts of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.
“We know we can count on the generosity of Winnipeg Jets fans to grow the pot and come through with a strong donation to help support those displaced and affected by the ongoing turmoil in Ukraine,” said Dwayne Green, Executive Director of the TNYF. “Through the support of Winnipeg fans, the TNYF is glad to be able to be able to contribute to the important relief work of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.”
On April 8, fans can purchase their 50/50 tickets in game at Canada Life Centre, or safely and securely online at TNYF.ca/FiftyFifty. Tickets will be sold 3 for $10, 10 for $20, or 50 for $50 with the winner receiving half the pot. As per the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba’s 50/50 regulations, purchases can only be made from IP addresses that are within the province of Manitoba. The draw will take place during the third period of play and the winner will be contacted the next business day.
A special ticket offer for April 8 will further support the work of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation. Fans can get a 300-level seat for $60 with $10 from each ticket further bolstering True North’s donation toward the Ukraine humanitarian crisis appeal on behalf of all fans.
True North also looks forward to once again welcoming the voices of the Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus to sing the national anthems on April 8.
