    With the return of live curling to TV, CurlON has launched the Ontario online 50-50 program with proceeds going directly to participating member clubs youth programming.

    Tam Heather, together with other registered member clubs in Ontario are selling online 50-50 tickets in support of youth programming at their clubs. All sales are completed online in partnership with our provider “Ascend Fundraising Solutions” and licensed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO - Licence # 1202000).

    “Currently over 50 clubs are in the launch with all ticket sales being used to directly support their youth programming” says Stephen Chenier, Executive Director of CurlON. “Our goal is to help clubs by generating revenue from a unique source during these hard operating times. The sport of curling has long supported youth curling with subsidized rates, additional resources and training. Clubs now have a mechanism to offset some of these program expenses and continue the great tradition of developing the future stars of the game while encouraging the youth to participate in a safe sport environment.”

    Anyone over the age of 18 who is in the Province of Ontario at the time of purchase is eligible to buy tickets. Draws will be held on the 15th of each month with three early bird prizes of $ 500 each.

    This is a standard 50/50 program where 50% of ticket sales revenue goes directly to prizes. 10% percent of ticket sales revenue goes to the cost of running an online gaming program such as this. That leaves 40% of ticket sales revenue that comes back directly to curling clubs.

    Our Tam website now includes a button that allows individuals to purchase tickets for these draws. 40% of any ticket revenue purchased through this link will be remitted to our club. Note that one does not need to be a member of Tam to purchase tickets. So, please share with your friends via your usual communication methods.

    Please note that individuals may also purchase tickets through the CurlON website. This site also includes all other rules of the program and we encourage everyone to read these rules before participating. Anyone purchasing tickets through the CurlON website will be asked to select the curling club that they wish to benefit from this purchase, so make sure to select Tam Heather.

    Tickets are available as follows:

    1. 50 tickets for $100.00
    2. 20 tickets for $50.00
    3. 5 tickets for $20.00

    Please consider buying tickets to help support the curling stars of the future through programming for our young and developing curlers.

    The Grand Prize draw is at 8:30 am on March 15th for all tickets sold by March 14th with the winner receiving 50% of the total sales pot. The winner's share of the pot at time of writing was already over $20,000.

    Oh, one last thing; don't forget who told you about this when it comes time to make up your mind what you want to do with your winnings.

    Good luck,
    Doug
