Support Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ontario
25/04/2020 by admin
Toronto Wolfpack are delighted to announce that the team’s support of Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ontario, will continue while the Super League season remains suspended.
As the COVID-19 pandemic prevents teams competing or travelling, a number of home games in Toronto have unfortunately been postponed. The Wolfpack wanted to continue to support the wonderful work Variety – the Children’s Charity do across Ontario at this time, some of which is continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wolfpack fans will now be able to take part in a monthly online 50/50 draw, with the first draw confirmed for the month of May. This draw will follow the same prize format as the well-known 50/50 game day draws which have taken place at Lamport Stadium since 2017.
One lucky fan will win half of the money, while the other half goes directly to Variety to fund their incredible outreach programs and care facilities. Toronto Wolfpack, along with some of Variety’s other partners, will contribute additional prizes to bolster each month’s draw.
Audrey Bouman, Toronto Wolfpack Partnerships & Business Development Manager, commented on the partnership that is now in its fourth year:
“As a Club we aim to be as involved as possible within our local community. We understand that is extremely important now more than ever to maintain that goal. We are determined to continue our support for what is a truly remarkable organization in Variety, and these monthly online 50/50 draws provide the perfect opportunity to do so.
“As well as raising much-needed funds for those in need we also want to continue raising awareness for the amazing work done by Variety. They have been a key part of our game days from our very first season and we are thrilled that, despite the challenges we are collectively facing, we can work together again in 2020.”
The first draw is now confirmed as opening on May 8th, with a two-week sales window and exciting Early Bird prizes for fans buying early. To enter the monthly 50-50 draws fans should keep an eye on Wolfpack and Variety’s social media channels for further announcements.
