Building on the overwhelming successes of its inaugural season, the Trail Blazers Foundation and Safeway Foundation will team up again with Pointstreak 5050 to offer the Rip City 5050 Raffle in partnership with the Safeway Foundation during the 2014-15 Trail Blazers season.
Fans can purchase raffle tickets at every regular season home game for a chance to win half of the net proceeds raised for that game. Go to the 5050 kiosks on the 100 level concourse near entry A7 or the 300 level concourse, or look out for mobile sellers throughout the arena. The raffle begins 90 minutes before the game when the doors open and continues through the end of halftime. The winner will be announced during the 4th quarter, but you don’t need to be present to win.
The best thing is it’s a win-win! The winning ticket will receive 50% of the net amount raised that night and the remaining 50% will benefit the Trail Blazers Foundation and a variety of local nonprofit organizations including this year’s five make it better partners: Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Portland, Playworks, SMART (Start Making a Reader Today), and Urban League of Portland.
Last season, the Rip City 5050 Raffle in partnership with the Safeway Foundation raised more than $300,000, benefitting the raffle winners as well as a number of great nonprofit partners.
