Operating for over 40 years, the Ontario Knights of Columbus Charity Raffle is now known as “Charities Lottery”. We are pleased to announce that this year’s lottery will support Special Olympics Ontario, Arthritis Society and various other Charities. All proceeds of commissions for selling these tickets will be donated to our Parish and Community as well!
The Knights of Columbus who have been there from the beginning will continue to help promote a healthy and active lifestyle through sport to improve the well-being of individuals with disabilities. We will also continue to support the Arthritis Society, to help fund research to cure this horrible and debilitating condition.
Knights of Columbus local councils participating in the sale of tickets also receive a portion of the funds to help support a local initiative or charity in their area. To encourage maximum participation of our Councils the Knights of Columbus have instituted a number of incentives dedicated to the growth of this worthwhile program. In addition, let us remind you that it’s a wonderful way to show support for programs that directly impact our local community. Since the lottery program began, the Knights of Columbus Ontario Charities Foundation has donated over 10 million dollars to local non-profit organizations across Ontario.
