Langley Rotary clubs’ 50/50 lottery hits $50,000 and counting

Tickets are on sale until Nov. 30

The four Langley Rotary clubs launched their 50/50 MEGA Draw lottery last month – which will see a grand prize winner take home up to $100,000.

Volunteers have been covering the streets of Langley and Aldergrove, selling tickets outside locations such as Otter Co-op and Save-On Foods.

Lottery marketing chair Pauline Buck said clubs have sold more than $50,000 worth of tickets with six weeks still to go; sales wrap Nov. 30.

Winners will take half of the lottery while Rotary Club of Langley, Central, Sunrise, and Aldergrove – plus the Rotaract Club – will split the other half to be used to continue supporting community needs and projects as well as helping replace fundraising activities cancelled by COVID-19.

“Lilianne Fuller, one of our Rotary Satellite members, has produced a really great short video promoting the Rotary Langley 50/50 MEGA Draw,” Buck explained. “It perfectly depicts how Rotary contributes to and supports the community and why funds from the Lottery are so needed.”
