Joey Moss Memorial Fund 50/50 raffle to take place Sunday on what would be Grey Cup weekend


Article content continued

The winner will take home half of the jackpot, with the remaining proceeds going to the Winnifred Stewart Association’s Joey Moss Memorial Fund to advocate for employment and other meaningful opportunities for people with disabilities.

Moss, who was born with Down syndrome, was a longtime locker room attendant for both the football team and the Edmonton Oilers. He died in October at the age of 57.

Dollars raised through the memorial fund will be used for launching an awareness campaign to promote the value of employing people with developmental disabilities and fostering employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.

The online draw follows a world record-setting $14.1-million dollar raffle for an Oilers playoff game in August. Massive demand caused technical glitches that delayed the draw by three weeks. The largest payout for an Edmonton Football Team draw was $435,919.50 in 2017.

For this draw, the website will have the capacity for 40,000 people at one time. Residents over 18 within Alberta’s borders at the time of ticket purchase can participate in the draw. Tickets cost $5 for one, $10 for 10, $20 for 60 and $50 for 200.

Also on Sunday at 4 p.m., the team will stream the 1980 Grey Cup game against Hamilton on its Facebook page. Even without a 2020 season, fans got some good news Friday with the release of the team’s 2021 schedule. The season will kick off June 12 at home against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
