About The 50/50 Program

The Canucks for Kids Fund 50/50 Program is a highly reputable fundraising program. At all Vancouver Canucks and Warriors home games, and select concerts and events, dedicated and passionate volunteers sell 50/50 raffle tickets with half of the total jackpot benefitting the Canucks for Kids Fund.

Our 50/50 volunteers do more than sell tickets. They are ambassadors for the Canucks for Kids Fund each and every event night. Thanks to the generosity of our fans, donors, players, employees and sponsors, the Canucks for Kids Fund has granted more than $94 million to charities in BC over the last 37 years. The core beneficiaries of the Fund are Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, Canucks Autism Network, and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
