Our club operates a community 50/50 draw each week as a fundraiser to keep our busy programs going! Our draw is a progressive 50/50 which means that once you sign up for a number that is your number forever. Your number goes in and we draw one out each week. If you’ve played a toonie that week you win half the money brought in! Each week, participants play a toonie with their number in the hopes of taking home 50% of the income for that week. If a registered toonie number is drawn and not played, the money for that week is added to the next. When this occurs it is called a Non-winner. The next week, 50% of the new income is added to the pot.
50% of the proceeds each week supports programs for vulnerable children and youth at our club!
You can play a toonie each week at one of our box locations or you can Pay Ahead by the quarter.
Lottery License #16201
Drop-in to one of the 50/50 Box locations and sign up using the registration sheet. Complete each component of the sheet, drop the tear off end in the box and keep the middle section with your number on it! You can then write your number on the stickers located on the side of the box, stick it on the toonie and drop it in. Each week you can simply continue to record your number on a sticker on a toonie and drop it off at one of our locations (see below for non-contact pay ahead options)!

Wednesday Mornings – Toonies must be in by Tuesday Night
Thursdays at 12:25pm at the Boys & Girls Club. A video of the draw will be posted on our Facebook page by 12:30pm. If it is a winner, they will be contacted as soon as possible and the announcement will be made after contact. If it is a NON-WINNER, the number will be posted on facebook on Thursday afternoon.
Getting in the game is easy when you pre-pay your existing Bonanza number for a period that is convenient for you! Pay in advance for 3, 6, 9, or 12 months and you’ll never see your number as a dreaded ‘NON-WINNER’.
Our Pay Ahead Program is non-contact. To Pay Ahead you can call 902-892-1817 with a credit card or send an e-transfer (with your Bonanza number) to email@example.com!
