FRISCO, Texas (Wednesday, March 16, 2016) – Fans have a chance to win big this Saturday with the debut of the FC Dallas Foundation 5050 Raffle, presented by Globe Life.
The raffle, which will be held at each home match at Toyota Stadium, will raise money for the FC Dallas Foundation and a local nonprofit organization. Saturday’s beneficiary is the Boys & Girls Club of Collin County. The net proceeds of each raffle will be divvied up between the winning entrant (50 percent), the match-specific local nonprofit (25 percent) and the Foundation (25 percent).
“At Globe Life, we believe in selfless acts because life insurance at its core is selfless in nature,” said Corey Jones, SVP of marketing at Globe Life. “Partnering with the FC Dallas 5050 Raffle is a wonderful way for Globe Life to be selfless and support and invest in the community.”
Participants can purchase two entries for $5, five for $10, 20 for $20 or 80 for $40 from kiosks on the East concourse and the WinStar Casino and World Resort River Club, or from one of four roaming sellers. The roaming sellers will begin offering 5050 raffle tickets at tailgates approximately three hours before kickoff, and all raffle sales will end at the 60th minute of the match with the winner announced by the 90th minute. All entrants must be 18 years old or older. Winners can claim their prizes by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org and presenting a winning ticket within 10 days of the raffle.
FC Dallas hosts Didier Drogba and the East-leading Montreal Impact at Toyota Stadium this Saturday, March 19, presented by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano.
