50/50 Draw

You are here: Home / 50/50 Draw

Every Cheticamp Co-op member is assigned a member number at time of membership sign-up, using this membership number, members can support local charities while participating in the weekly 50/50 draws for a chance to take home prize money.

Here’s how the Weekly 50/50 Draw works:

  1. A member places a toonie in a provided envelope and then write their membership number on it.
  2. The member then places the envelope in a box located at our store.
  3. At the end of the week, one membership number is drawn from the entire pool of members and then compared to the numbers on the envelopes from the box.
  4. If that member played that week, they win the pot, if that member did not play, the pot keeps growing.

50% of the pot goes to the winning member and the remainder goes to the Cheticamp Sacred Heart Hospital Charitable Foundation.

The organization raises an average of $50,000.00 per year. A recent example of their fundraising efforts was the purchase of an Automated Unit Dose Dispensary for the Hospital Pharmacy.

They have established a new goal to purchase a new X-Ray Unit for the Hospital. Daphne Aucoin, the foundation’s former secretary-treasurer stated their efforts cover all residents from newborns to the elderly and everyone in-between.
