Thank you for supporting the CNE Foundation Holiday 50/50!

This holiday season, the CNE community could support the Foundation’s community and youth programs through the first ever CNE Foundation Holiday 50/50 raffle.

The CNE Foundation Holiday 50/50 took place in the weeks leading up to the holiday break, with the final draw taking place on December 19. All ticket purchasers were entered for a chance to win the cash Grand Prize – estimated $6,798 – and two Consolation Prize Staycations sponsored by Hotel X Toronto. Individuals who purchased by December 3 were automatically entered for chances to win two Early Bird Prize Staycations at Hotel X Toronto.

Proceeds from the raffle support CNE Foundation programs, including Community Grants, Community and Youth Programs, and the Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship Fund.

A warm holiday thank you to all ticket purchasers and sponsors for your support. With your help, we are able to continue to make a difference in the lives of individuals and the community after this challenging year.
