The OHL season has been put on hold because of the pandemic and will not start until December 1. This is not stopping the Kitchener Rangers and Rangers Reach from giving back to the community with the start of 50/50 raffles.
Craig Campbell, Executive Director for Rangers Reach, tells the Mike Farwell Show on 570 NEWS that 50/50 raffles will be seen around the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium once play resumes. "So it's a way our organizations can work together to raise funds to help our community, and that is what the Rangers are all about."
There is also a Community Impact 50/50 raffle, which will be in support of The Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington, the Food Bank of Waterloo Region, Habitat for Humanity, and the House of Friendship.
That draw has started and goes until October 17 at 3:00 p.m. and Joe Birch, Chief Operating Officer for the Kitchener Rangers Hockey Club outlined how important it is for them to support these agencies during a pandemic.
"With COVID-19 and with all that we all are going through these four organizations need our support more than ever, and until we get that puck dropped we have had to figure out ways to continue to support them."
For supporters of the Community Impact 50/50 who purchase tickets by October 9 at 12 p.m. their tickets will automatically be entered for a chance to win either a Michael Vukojevic or Francesco Pinelli game worn jersey.
