CNE Foundation Spring 50/50

Thank you for supporting the CNE Foundation Spring 50/50

CNE fans had five chances to win in the new CNE Foundation Spring 50/50! Benefitting CNE Foundation community and youth programs, the Spring 50/50 fundraiser ran from April 15 to May 14, 2021.

All ticket purchasers were entered for a chance to win 50 per cent of the pot and take home the cash Grand Prize – estimated at $8,298! Two $300 Gift Certificates for relaxation and serenity at Guerlain Spa at Hotel X Torontowere available as Consolation Prizes.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, CNE fans who purchased their tickets by the April 29 Early Bird deadline were automatically entered for chances to win Early Bird Prizes as well! Two additional $300 Gift Certificates for Hotel X Toronto’s Guerlain Spa offered mom an exquisite experience to look forward to.

Proceeds from the raffle support CNE Foundation programs, including our new Smiles on Faces program, Community Grants, Community and Youth Programs, and the Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship Fund.

Sincere thanks to all CNE fans who purchased Spring 50/50 tickets and to Hotel X Toronto for sponsoring exquisite prizes! With the support of the CNE community, we are able to continue to make a difference in the lives of individuals and the community after a challenging year.


A note to our supporters

On May 14, 2021, the City of Toronto extended summer event cancellations through to Labour Day, as part of the ongoing response to curb the spread of COVID-19. Sadly, this included the cancellation of the 2021 CNE. Along with the rest of the CNE community, we were hopeful for a CNE this summer, but understand that measures must be implemented now to help us all move past the pandemic.

Though some CNE Foundation programs have been deferred to next season as a result, we are able to move ahead with certain CNE Foundation programs this year. We look forward to sharing details in the weeks and months ahead. Remaining proceeds from the Spring 50/50 raffle will be held in trust for our 2022 community and youth programs.

Thank you for your continued support and stay safe.
