$65,000 raised so far for Langley Rotarys’ 50/50 draw

The goal for the four service clubs is to hit the $400,000 mark before August deadline

Jeff Morfitt and his team of Rotarians sold out all the tickets to last year’s 50/50 mega draw.

Now this year, with what he calls a “bigger than ever” draw, he is hoping to see another sold-out fundraiser.

“Our tickets for last year’s 50/50 Mega Draw sold out in advance of the draw date, and we are expecting this year’s will, too,” Morfitt said with a grin.

“So don’t miss out. Get your ticket now,” suggested the Rotarian with the Langley Sunrise.

Good news for his team – they have already reached $65,000. But, they are still far from reaching the goal.

This year’s jackpot could reach a “whopping” $400,000 – making the fundraiser the biggest ever organized by the Rotary Clubs of Langley.

With Aug. 14 as the deadline, Morfitt is confident they’ll soon hit their target. His confidence comes from the fact that they raised $250,000 last year, with the winner taking away the half.

All of the proceeds from the draw are split evenly between the four main Langley Rotary Clubs, which are earmarked for community service initiatives.
