50/50 Raffle Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to attend the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns FC games to sell 50/50 raffle tickets. The Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns FC 50/50 raffles are the biggest fundraising opportunity for Active Children Portland … meaning more kids throughout Portland will benefit from our programming!!

Volunteers partner to sell tickets to fans before the match until the 60th minute mark and are then  given a ticket to watch the remainder of the game. It’s a fun and dynamic way to participate in a game day experience while helping to raise funding that helps build fields for kids and after-school programming for under-served children in 17 Portland schools.  All volunteers receive a pass to the adidas employee store, a food and beverage voucher and can win prizes for being a top seller.
