The New Orleans Saints announced Saturday, Aug. 20 the launch of 50/50 Raffles at all Saints home games at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this season. The Saints will use the 50/50 Central platform to allow fans an opportunity to donate to local charitable organizations or causes by participating in an electronic 50/50 raffle. At each game, half of the net proceeds collected from the raffle will benefit a designated charitable organization or cause, while one lucky fan will win the remaining half of those proceeds.
“We are pleased to be able to offer all of the fans attending our game a tremendous opportunity to greatly assist numerous worthwhile charities through our 50/50 raffles,” said Owner Tom Benson. “Our fans have always been passionate and kind and responsive to those in need, and certainly with the massive efforts facing our state in lieu of the flooding, there is a great need at this time for financial assistance.”
