Sens’ 50/50 passes $100,000 mark
The Belleville Senators are thrilled to announce that more than $100,000 has been raised already this season for selected Bay of Quinte charities through the team’s 50/50 ticket sales at home games.
Since its inception on Nov. 10, Sens fans have purchased more than $200,000 worth of 50/50 tickets over the course of 20 games at the Yardmen Arena.
“We are very proud to announce that our 50/50 program has surpassed 100k,” said Senators COO Rob Mullowney. “This has been made possible by a great team effort from our 50/50 volunteers, our staff, the support of the Ottawa Senators Foundation and most importantly tremendous engagement from our fans.
“We look forward to surpassing our next goal of $200,000 raised for the community before the end of this season with 14 home games left.”
Half of that total has gone to passionate Sens fans with the other half going right back into the Bay of Quinte community. The highest pay out this year was $10,650 when the Sens hosted the Toronto Marlies on Feb. 9. The average payout per game is more than $5,400.
Considering the comparative size of Belleville in relation to other pro hockey cities, the Sens’ 50/50 is one of the most successful in professional hockey in North America.
