August 28, 2020 - Canadian Premier League (CPL) - HFX Wanderers FC News Release

Halifax, N.S. - HFX Wanderers FC have launched an online 50/50 raffle for the remainder of the Canadian Premier League's Island Games, with the money raised going to support the team's local youth soccer club partners.

The winner will be drawn September 20th following the Island Games, with the lucky person claiming 50% and the remaining funds (after administration fees) being distributed equally to Halifax Dunbrack, United DFC, Suburban FC, Storm Soccer Club, Farias Soccer Academy and Halifax County United.

"This has been a challenging year for everyone but our club partners have been especially hard hit financially so we thought we would use our platform at the Island Games to try to help them raise some much needed funds," said Wanderers club President Derek Martin. "We are all in this together and we hope all of the clubs and our fans join us in supporting these clubs so they can continue giving kids in our community access to this beautiful game."
