The Golden Rockets and the Rotary Club of Golden are teaming up to raise funds for Cops for Kids through an exciting 50/50 event that will  be held during the Rockets play-off game on February 23.

Tickets for hundreds of numbered balls will be on sale for $5 each leading up to and during the game.

At the intermission, all the balls will be dropped on the ice and a special guest will be randomly selecting the winning ball, with half of the proceeds going towards Cops for Kids and the other half heading into the pocket of one lucky winner.

In roughly two years, Cops for Kids has supported the community of Golden with over $25,000 in assistance to nine local children as well as large portion of the funding for the new pediatric crib at the Golden Hospital.

The ongoing support of the community and events such as the upcoming ball drop have been critical to these efforts and Cops for Kids hopes this fun event will help to raise more funds for future children in need.

Tickets for the balls will be available around town leading up to the event and during the game on Feb. 23.

Those interested in purchasing a ticket can also do so by contacting Cst. Mike Hull or Cst. Amber Brunner at the Golden/Field RCMP Detachment, or by emailing goldencopsforkids@gmail.com.

Ticket holders do not have to be present at the draw but everyone is encouraged to come out to the game to support Cops for Kids and the Golden Rockets during their exciting play-off run!
