Cornwall, Ontario (April 25, 2022) – United Way Centraide SDG (UWC SDG) is thrilled to launch its first-ever online 50/50 raffle as part of its spring fundraiser. Sponsored by Your Credit Union, this year’s Hanbags for Hope will run from April 25 to May 19 and will include a 50/50 raffle and an online handbag auction. On Monday, April 25, tickets were available for 50/50 on Rafflebox. The draw will last four weeks and will end on Thursday, May 19. The winner, to be announced on May 20, will take home half the jackpot in a luxurious YSL bag worth $3,110.
From May 12-19, UWC SDG will also be holding an online handbag auction featuring a small selection of handbags in a variety of styles and colors from independent brands and well-known designers.
“While we hope this will be the last time our spring fundraiser will be digital rather than in-person, we are really excited to be hosting our first 50/50 draw online,” said Juliette Labossière, CEO of United Way Centraide SDG. “Fundraising has been challenging over the past two years, but it has driven us to innovate and try new strategies to raise funds for our poverty reduction work and our 16 member agencies that run local programs. that change lives.”
All money raised through Handbags for Hope stays in Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and is invested in local agencies and programs that tackle #IGNORABLE issues like poverty, mental health and hunger.
By managing investments in a wide range of programs – including youth mentoring, counselling, food security, life skills training, mental health awareness, sexual assault support and specialist services – UWC SDG ensures that every dollar donated closes gaps in care and meets the most pressing needs in our communities.
