Nova Central Ringette Association is excited to announce the launch of our Monthly 50/50 Association-Wide Fundraiser!
NCRA is partnering with local ringette association Harbour City Lakers Ringette, to offer our members an additional option to fundraise for your player through the regular season
Our 50/50 administrative partner is Rafflebox; their simple, online platform is user friendly, easy to navigate, uses less resources which, in turn, increases our fundraising results. Using Rafflebox also eliminates a lot of the administrative work, making it an easy fundraiser for you and your player.
You can buy tickets here: Nova Central & Harbour City Lakers Ringette 50/50 Cash Raffle Fundraiser | Rafflebox
The more tickets you sell = less money out of your own pocket to pay for registration and your player team budget!

How much money does NCRA get from player sales?
$0! The association doesn’t profit from the tickets sold by individual players in their campaign at all.
What happens when a player has reached their fundraising amount for their player account?
They can continue to sell tickets for credit towards their registration for next season and/or they can apply the money towards the current or next season NCRA development program, try-out fees, spring/summer programming etc. 50/50 monies raised above the player’s team budget do not form part of their team’s general funds; they are specific to the player. Players that do not have player budgets - for example athletes in our Active Start program - can sell 50/50 tickets and it will be credited toward their future NCRA registration or programs in the upcoming season.
How do I know how much my player has raised?
You can visit the Rafflebox website and click on the TOP FUNDRAISERS tab. There you can search for your player’s name. You can also reach out direct to your player’s team manager/fundraising staff for current accounting. Players on teams without a team manager or player account, can reach out directly to the 50/50 coordinator for credit inquiries.
What if a player takes a season off? What happens to the money?
The money will be held in trust for a maximum of one off-season. If a player returns, the money will go back to the player as credit for registration. If a player takes two consecutive seasons off, regardless of reason, the money will be placed in the association operating fund or player development fund as deemed necessary by the board and the player will not get the money back. Credit cannot be transferred to another association.
I don’t have a player to support, can I still buy 50/50 tickets?
Yes. There is a link on the NCRA website where you can purchase online tickets. All proceeds raised will go to the association operating fund or player development fund as deemed necessary by the board.
