Toronto, ON – August 16, 2017: 5050 Central Ltd. (“the Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gaming Nation Inc. (FAN-TSXV), is pleased to announce that the Company has reached an agreement with Variety, the Children’s Charity Ontario. They are the associated charity of the Toronto Wolfpack RLFC of the Kingstone Press League 1, a division of the Rugby Football League.

The agreement will see Variety, the Children’s Charity Ontario run 50/50 raffles using 5050 Central’s digital raffling platform. Raffles will take place at Lamport Stadium during Wolfpack home matches.

The Wolfpack marks the Company’s first rugby client, with the Club being the first professional rugby team in Canada as well as the world’s first trans-Atlantic rugby league team.

Through their programs and services, Variety, the Children’s Charity Ontario makes a profound difference in the spirits and lives of young people with disabilities and their families in the greater Toronto area and across Ontario.

For over 65 years, their goal has been to improve the quality of life and integration into society of all people, regardless of their abilities. By offering specialized programs and services, they create a level playing field without barriers, intimidation or other obstacles. Dedicated to people of all abilities, Variety, the Children’s Charity Ontario is a great place to get fit and have fun.

“Variety, the Children’s Charity Ontario is excited to partner with the Toronto Wolfpack Rugby team and 5050 Central to raise needed funds for children with a disability,” said Karen Stintz, CEO of Variety, the Children’s Charity Ontario.  “Through this partnership, more kids across Ontario will have opportunities to play. The Toronto Wolfpack rugby team recognizes the importance of supporting children of all abilities and we are looking forward to being part of the team.”

“50/50 is a staple in the Toronto Sports event fabric,” said Joe Santos, Chief Operations Officer of the Toronto Wolfpack.  “Teaming up with Variety, the Children’s Charity is a natural fit.  They improve young people’s quality of life regardless of their abilities.  Rugby, whichever modality you support, is an inclusive game that promotes healthy activity while instilling life long lessons - teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.   

“As a fan of Toronto sports, I personally love buying a ticket for the 50/50 draw in the hopes of one day being that fan that screams in pure joy with the winning ticket.  We welcome all our loyal Wolfpack fans and new fans to take their gameday experience to another level by supporting an amazing local charity and possibly winning the jackpot!”
