The ace in Kingston’s “Catch The Ace” charity raffle remains up for grabs as the draw enters its fourteenth week, and the jackpot has now surpassed $4000. The game is presented by Kingston Police and The Loyal Oarsman with proceeds going to support Special Olympics Ontario. Tickets for the draw can be purchased online here.
Over 7,000 high school athletes compete annually across the province in their efforts to qualify for School Championships.
While the 2020 Provincial School Championships in Kingston have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fundraiser is still taking place in anticipation of its reinstatement.
The winner of the weekly draw wins 20% of the pot for that week. If the number of the digital envelope they picked when they bought their ticket holds The Ace of Spades, they win an additional 30% for that week and for all draws that have not been won for that the current game. If they don’t pick the Ace of Spades, the 30% for that week will go into the Progressive Jackpot.
Individuals, groups or businesses are also encouraged to Draft an Athlete to ensure each participant is fully funded and enjoys their experience at the Championships. For more information on this, please go to https://give.specialolympicsontario.com/schoolchamps/ .
In addition, this is also a great opportunity for high-school students to obtain their required volunteer hours while assisting a wonderful organization and cause. To volunteer please go to http://schoolchamps.ca/volunteer/ .
