Win-win for netball fans and kids’ cancer research

Win-win for netball fans and kids’ cancer research

Netball NSW and the NSW Swifts continue support of vital childhood cancer research.

For more than 10 years Netball NSW and the NSW Swifts have partnered with The Kids’ Cancer Project to support vital childhood cancer research.

While Crazy Hair & Sock Day remains the signature fundraising activity uniting the netball community across the state, the charity partnership has expanded in 2021 to enable generous spectators at Swifts home games to contribute to the cause through the 50-50 Charity Raffle.

Introducing 50-50 Charity Raffle

The 50-50 Charity Raffle is a not-for-profit fundraising product operated by the 50-50 Foundation where 50 percent of the prize pool raised through each fundraising raffle goes to one lucky ticket holder who is drawn at random during the event. The remaining 50 percent goes directly towards charitable purposes.

Since 2013, 50-50 Charity Raffle has raised more than $4M delivering $2M to charity partners and $2M in prize money.

Throughout the 2021 netball season, visitors to Swifts home games at Ken Rosewall Arena, Sydney Olympic Park will have the chance to buy tickets from The Kids’ Cancer Project volunteers equipped with electronic devices to make purchase easy.

The total pool of funds collected from ticket sales is split 50-50. Fifty percent goes directly to the lucky winner, while the other 50 percent will go directly to The Kids’ Cancer Project.

Upcoming NSW Swifts home games

25 July, Round 12 - Swifts v GIANTS, Ken Rosewall Arena, SOP

Tickets can also be purchased online with all games released one week prior to match day.

“It’s a WIN-WIN fans can support the great cause and have the chance to win a cash prize at the game.”

The 50-50 Charity Raffle is now entering its 8th season so you may have seen it in action already at NRL, AFL, Super Rugby, BBL & WBBL (cricket), and Suncorp Super Netball games in Brisbane, Sydney, Townsville, Gold Coast, Newcastle and Canberra.

The first winner of The Kids’ Cancer Project 50-50 Charity Raffle, which was drawn as part of the Swifts Vs Magpies game on Sunday 30 May at Ken Rosewall Arena, was Jenni Rowan. More than $1,735 was raised on the day with Jenni taking home $867.50 with her winning ticket and The Kids’ Cancer Project able to bank valuable funds for childhood cancer research.

50-50 Charity Raffle founder and 50-50 Foundation Director John Corry is proud the raffle is now being featured at major women’s sport, and is delighted to be partnering with The Kids’ Cancer Project at NSW Swifts games
