OTTAWA, ON, August 3, 2023 – Hey Ontario: get your tickets today! Veterinarians Without Borders/Vétérinaires Sans Frontières (VWB/VSF) has launched its 50/50 raffle, with funds raised going towards one deserving veterinary student who is passionate about animal care in Ontario. With 3,570 tickets in total up for grabs – and 1 in 3,570 odds of taking home half the pot - one lucky winner will have the chance to take home up to $10,000, all while helping ensure animals across Ontario receive the veterinary care they need.
The 50/50 raffle runs today until September 21, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. ET, with the draw set to occur on September 22, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. One ticket can be purchased for $10; a 3-ticket pack can be purchased for $25; a 10-ticket pack can be purchased for $50; and a 50-ticket pack can be purchased for $200. The raffle is only open to Ontario residents, age 18+.
“With sharply rising living costs, like housing and food, we’re hoping that this funding will help ease the financial burden for a veterinary student,” said Charmaine Brett, executive director of VWB/VSF. “Veterinary shortages are felt across nearly every community in Canada, which can lead to dire consequences for animals – and their owners,” said Brett. “The important work that veterinarians do to keep animals healthy will not only help ensure the well-being of our four-legged friends, but also help to prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases, like rabies,” Brett added.
Hurry! Tickets are limited! Get yours today.
