The Giants Community Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has launched a new fundraising program at AT&T Park - the 50/50 Raffle presented by HERO.
During every home game, unless otherwise noted on the website, fans, 18 years or older, have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets from the time the gates open (two hours before first pitch) to the end of the 6th inning.
Raffle tickets are sold at various price points, which include 1 for $3; 3 for $5; 10 for $10; 40 for $20; and 120 for $40. Tickets can be purchased from any of the Raffle Team Members roaming throughout the park or at the 50/50 Kiosk located on the Promenade Level. The jackpot amount grows as tickets are purchased and fans are updated about the running total throughout the game. The winning raffle number is announced in park and posted on the scoreboard and at the 50/50 Kiosk in the 8th inning. Half the proceeds from the jackpot go to the winning fan and the other half to the Giants Community Fund.
One raffle number is randomly selected to win at each game. The winner does not have to be present at AT&T Park to win. The winning raffle number will be posted at sfgiants.com/5050raffle within 3 business days of each game. The winner must submit the original winning raffle ticket to claim the cash prize and, if present at the park, can do so at the 50/50 Kiosk.
