Starting on Saturday, September 28th and weekly thereafter, Kiwanis will hold a Chase the Ace draw at the Killarney Family Pub, 240 Riverview Drive in Cochrane. Tickets will be on sale starting at 5 p.m. and the draw will take place at 7:00pm. For the occasion, our deputy major Patrick Wilson will draw the winning ticket.
Chase the Ace is a progressive raffle Kiwanis of Cochrane will be using to fund various community kids programs.
The jackpot accumulates from week-to-week until it is won, and the game is then over. Each week participants buy tickets.
The funds from ticket sales are divided into three parts: Kiwanis will keep 50%, the winner of the weekly ticket (who has to be present for the draw) wins 20% of the jackpot, and the remaining 30% goes into the jackpot. The weekly ticket 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, and the jackpot rolls over to the next week.
Kiwanis proceeds will be used to fund our Christmas toy project for disadvantaged kids, our bike recycling program, kids leadership programs, Kamp Kiwanis disadvantaged kids access and various other community programs.
Come and join us for this fun raffle and support various kids community programs. For more information, contact club president Ron Gosselin at 403-851-4199 or Kiwanis.Cochrane@gmail.com.
