The governing body of baseball in Quebec teamed up with the Blue Jays at the back-to-back games versus the Cincinnati Reds. With the support of Pointstreak 5050’s electronic raffle system and staff, the result far exceeded anyone’s expectations and set a new record in the province of Quebec.

Toronto, ON – Baseball Quebec and its team of dedicated volunteers sold $135,445 worth of 50/50 raffle tickets on April 3rd and 4th when the Blue Jays hosted the Cincinnati Reds at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, eclipsing even jackpots generated so far by the Montreal Canadiens’ electronic raffle program.

“The 5050 raffle at this weekend’s Blue Jays games at Olympic Stadium was a tremendous success for Baseball Quebec” said Maxime Lamarche, Director of Baseball Quebec, “We raised over $60,000 with great thanks to Pointstreak 5050. Pointstreak’s technical expertise and on-site training and support were invaluable. They were critical to our success and were part of our team at every step”.

Pointstreak 5050 is an electronic version of the traditional 50/50 raffle whereby perforated paper tickets are sold to the buyer. Compared to traditional paper raffles, electronic raffles have proven to boost fundraising by extending the in-game sales time and igniting sales due to the prominently displaying the growing pot on the scoreboard and concourse displays. Thanks to recent changes to charitable gaming laws, electronic raffling as a fundraising tool is now permitted in the province of Québec. 

The proceeds from the weekend’s ticket sales will help fund Baseball Quebec’s mission to create programs that encourage active participation, fun and high performance development.
