The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre’s 50/50 Cash Lottery raises much-needed funds to support their services and programs; supporting our community’s most vulnerable. Each year, the Centre supports hundreds of children from across Central Alberta who have experienced abuse. The Central Alberta CAC provides a safe space for these children, a place with the goal for a child to only have to share their story once – eliminating the chance of revictimization and helping them through their journey of healing one step at a time.

Mark Jones, the CEO of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre, is once again thanking Albertans for their generosity, and for facilitating strong partnerships over the years.

“Through the Loyalty campaign, we’ve been able to raise over $100,000 already! The success of last years’ lottery allowed us to help more children and families from across Central Alberta. To date, we’ve helped nearly 1800 children, and our advocacy team has worked tirelessly to protect and support the youths that come forward. From disclosure to triage and court appearances, our advocacy team has been working around the clock. This year has been especially difficult, with October and November being some of the busiest months with the most extreme and complex cases we have yet to see. So, we hope people will consider buying a ticket to help us help these kids.” – Mark Jones, CEO

Tickets are available online at www.cacac5050.ca and will be emailed to the purchaser. You can also call the Centre directly to purchase tickets at 587-272-2233. Lottery license number: 578482.

The CACAC 50/50 Cash Lottery final deadline is February 4th, 2022 at 11:00pm and the draw will take place on February 10th, 2021 at 11:00am.

Together, we can end child abuse. Purchase your ticket today to support the CACAC and the children of our community.
