Chase The Ace For NL Rugby!
When you chase the ace, you also help chase the dreams of Rugby players in Newfoundland. Every time you buy a lottery ticket, you contribute to the growth of Rugby in Newfoundland. Participants buy tickets every week and the funds from the sales is divided into parts. Half of it goes to organisers, 20% is awarded to the winners, and 30% goes into the big jackpot. The lottery winner also then draws a card from a deck of playing cards and wins the accumulated jackpot if the ace of spades is drawn. If not, the reduced deck is kept for the following week's game. The jackpot, which is over $1000 right now, accumulates from week-to-week until it is won, and the game is then over.
Funds raised are split between the Swilers and the Rock girls evenly. The amount raised have an immense impact on the teams as they contribute to travel costs and infrastructure improvement. Every cent goes towards the future of Rugby in this island,
So what are you waiting for? Try your luck next time you're at Swilers. You never know, you might just be the lucky one!
Tickets are sold every Friday* nights from 7:00-8:00 at Swilers Rugby Club on 100 Crosbie Road.
*There is no Chase the Ace on July the 6th, Friday.
