Round Rock Express 50/50 Raffle

 

Want your chance to walk away from an Express game a little richer? This year, thanks to the passing of Proposition 5, the Express, Nolan Ryan Foundation and Cook-Walden Funeral Homes & Cemeteries are joining forces to host a 50/50 raffle every home game.

A 50/50 raffle means that half of the net proceeds from ticket sales each night will go to one lucky fan while the other half will go back to the Nolan Ryan Foundation! Fans will be able to purchase raffle tickets from the time the gates open until the end of the 6th inning. The winner will be announced in the 7th inning.

At the end of the season, the Nolan Ryan Foundation will make a donation to a handful of local nonprofits organization in Central Texas through their recently-founded community grant program. Every night is a new chance to not only win, but help a great cause in the process.

Tickets can be purchased at the 50/50 raffle kiosk on the concourse behind home plate or from one of the roaming vendors throughout the stadium. All raffle ticket purchases must be made with cash or a debit card. Credit cards will not be accepted, per state law.

 

 

The Nolan Ryan Foundation is the official 501(c)(3) team charity of the Round Rock Express. Formed in Alvin, Texas in 1990, the Foundation provides resources for youth, education and community development. In 2017, the Nolan Ryan Foundation relocated to Round Rock, Texas. Recent Central Texas impacts include a substantial contribution to the Play for All Abilities Park in Round Rock, a scholarship endowment fund and a community grant program.

The Nolan Ryan Foundation scholarship program strives to change the lives of deserving Central Texas students who will attend a state school in Texas. Scholarships are awarded in varied sums up to $16,000 per student, renewable up for up to four years. The goal of the scholarship program is to bridge the gap between financial aid and tuition expenses, so that students don't have the added burden of incurring debt along with a college education.

The Nolan Ryan Foundation community grant program will expand financial support to instrumental organizations in the Round Rock and surrounding communities that focus on youth, education and community development.

 

 

"Giving back and being involved in our community is something we take seriously. Our commitment to building enduring relationships and living out our vision of celebrating life through support of youth, the arts, veterans and our community is why we are honored to partner with the Nolan Ryan Foundation for the 50/50 raffle. We are proud to be part of this great event, which supports such worthy organizations chosen by the Nolan Ryan Foundation. This raffle is truly a community coming together every night for the support of many."
