    MSU Athletics 50/50 Fundraiser

    MSU Athletics holds 50/50 raffles at select home events (Football, Men’s & Women’s Basketball, Hockey) throughout the school year. We are looking for groups who would be willing to sell tickets at these events, and in return we will provide a donation to your group. The donation amount ranges from $50-$100 per volunteer depending on the event worked. All training will take place at the event, so all you need to do is sign up and show up with a positive attitude! Once you are done selling, volunteers are more than welcome to stay and watch the rest of the game.
