In lieu of many in-person fundraisers like Langley RibFest that have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the lottery raises funds for the local Rotary clubs so they can help organizations and hold community events.

Last year – the first year the 50/50 draw was held, Langley resident Katy Mayrs earned $73,000 from the $147,000 total.

The total officially reached past $200,00 on Aug. 9. The lottery goal is set at $250,000.

Organizer Pauline Buck noted that last weekend’s sales were well above $7,000, prompting her to estimate that the goal is in reach.

Tickets are three for $50 (online only) and eight for $100 in person or online – one for $20 options are sold out.
