Monumental Sports announces new online platform for Capitals and Wizards Raffles – NBC4 Washington
New online raffle platform for Caps, Wizards 50/50 raffles originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Monumental Sports and Entertainment announced on Friday its exciting new online platform that gives more fans access to 50/50 raffles sold in Capitals and Wizards games this season.
Fans located in the nation’s capital can purchase raffle tickets online after Ted Leonsis’ MSE received licenses from the DC Office of Lottery and Gaming. As long as fans are anywhere in Washington DC during the live home games of the Wizards and Capitals games, they will have a chance to win the grand prize.
With the program, 50% of the purchased raffle goes to the jackpot and the remaining 50% goes to the MSE Foundation. The online platform went live from the Capitals ‘first preseason game against the Bruins and the Wizards’ second preseason game against the Knicks.
MSE owns the Wizards, Capitals, Mystics, and Capital One Arena.
Tickets can be found here at https://www.monumentalfoundation.org/5050 and will sell out from one hour before each home game and two and a half hours after. It is not necessary to be present at the arena to participate.
Having raised $ 1.25 million since the start of the 50/50 program, the MSE Foundation reinvests most of its income in local communities and works with nonprofits in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area.
