50/50 Drawing

The 50/50 raises money that supports the team. At each game, student volunteers or CHA members greet fans and sell chances. A winning ticket is drawn during the game and half the take is given to the winner.

Many thanks to the CHA volunteers and Cornell students who give up "game-time" to sell 50-50 tickets, count money and distribute winnings to the lucky ticket holder. We couldn't do this without your assistance!
