CHICAGO – Cubs fans can win big while giving back to the Chicago community with the expansion of the Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle program. There will now be two ways fans can purchase tickets for the Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle – inside the ballpark and online.

Starting Tuesday, June 18, fans will have the opportunity to purchase Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle tickets online by visiting www.cubs.com/raffle. The winning ticket will receive half of the net proceeds from the game's raffle ticket sales, and the other half will benefit Cubs Charities.

In accordance with state and local law, online Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle tickets will only be available for purchase in the Chicago city limits. Raffle tickets will be available approximately two hours before the start of each Cubs home game this season.

Net proceeds from the 50/50 Raffle will benefit Cubs Charities, which aims to expand baseball and softball opportunities for all Chicago children and youth by engaging kids with skilled coaches and quality programming and providing safe and accessible places to play the game.

For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.cubs.com/raffle.
