Toronto, ON – May 30, 2018: 5050 Central Ltd. (“the Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gaming Nation Inc., announced today that the Company has reached an agreement with the Oro District Lions Club to run 50/50 raffles during the Boots & Hearts Music Festival in Oro-Medonte, Ontario.
Boots and Hearts, taking place August 9-12, 2018, is a country music and camping festival produced by Republic Live Inc. The event has grown to become Canada’s largest country music festival since its inception in 2012, having seen attendance grow as high as 45,000 fans per day. This year’s lineup includes acts such as Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson and Thomas Rhett.
5050 Central’s digital fundraising platform will be utilized to run a festival-long 50/50 raffle. Half of the proceeds will go to the lucky winner of the raffle, while the other half will benefit three charitable projects supported by the Oro District Lions Club.
The Club will be donating to: Lions Foundation Canada (Oakville dog guide school), Lions Camp Dorset (for cottage country kidney dialysis), and the Lighthouse Soup Kitchen and Shelter in Orillia (for their daily programs to assist local homeless people).
Lion President Bob Murray and the 43 members of the service club are very appreciative of the support they have received in the forty-five years that the club has been in Oro-Medonte. This new venture promises to greatly enhance their ability to fulfill the motto of Lions Clubs around the world – “WE SERVE”.
“As 5050 Central continues to add to their expanding lineup of music festivals, we are very excited to be apart of Boots and Hearts,” said Keshav Sharma, Business Development Executive with 5050 Central. “We are confident the Oro District Lions Club will greatly benefit from this new source of fundraising revenue, while the raffles will deliver added enthusiasm to the Festival.”
