The donation is made directly from the Calgary Flames Foundation to the eligible charity selected by the winner. This is a one-time event occurring on May 5, 2021.
“This season Calgary Flames fans and raffle participants helped ensure the Calgary Flames Foundation could honour our commitments and support valuable community programs,” said Candice Goudie, Executive Director of the Calgary Flames Foundation.
“With our fans support, we have been able to continue donations to charities through our COVID-19 Community Support Program. We have been able to carry on the creation of programs and partnerships that resulted in books for schools, technology for students at home, new rinks and playgrounds and sports equipment sent to homes of low income families.”
“Albertans continue to be incredibly dedicated to philanthropy. This special 50/50 allows us to say thank you to our supporters in a meaningful way.”
