Monumental Sports and Entertainment announced on Friday its exciting new online platform that gives more fans access to the 50/50 raffles sold during 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 D.C. Office of Lottery and Gaming. As long as fans are anywhere in Washington D.C. during live home games for Wizards and Capitals games, they'll have a shot at the grand prize.
With the program, 50% of the purchased raffle goes toward the jackpot prize and the other 50% is donated to the MSE Foundation. The online platform went live starting with the Capitals' first preseason game against the Bruins and 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 be sold starting an hour before each home game and two and a half hours after. You do not have to be present at the arena to participate.
Having raised $1.25 million since the 50/50 program started, the MSE Foundation reinvests most of its proceeds to local communities and works with nonprofits around the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area.
