2020 Lottery

About our Lottery

Operating for over 40 years, the Ontario Knights of Columbus Charity Raffle is now known as “Charities Lottery”. We are pleased to announce that this year’s lottery will support Special Olympics Ontario, Arthritis Society and various other Charities. Press here to see list.

The Knights of Columbus who have been there from the beginning will continue to help promote a healthy and active lifestyle through sport to improve the wellbeing of individuals with disabilities. We will also continue to support the Arthritis Society, to help fund research to cure this horrible and debilitating condition.

Knights of Columbus local councils participating in the sale of tickets also receive a portion of the funds to help support a local initiative or charity in their area. To encourage maximum participation of our Councils the Knights of Columbus have instituted a number of incentives dedicated to the growth of this worthwhile program. In addition, let us remind you that it’s a wonderful way to show support for programs that directly impact our local community. Since the lottery program began, the Knights of Columbus Ontario Charities Foundation has donated over 10 million dollars to local non-profit organizations across Ontario.

This year there are 500 prizes with a grand prize of $ 200,000 cash!!! Other prizes include a 2020 Ford Mustang Convertible, a 2020 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab 4WD, a 2020 Princecraft Vectra 19’ Pontoon Boat, a 2020 Harley Davidson Road King Motorcycle, A 2020 Jayco Flight SLX trailer and a number of cash prizes.

Tickets are only $ 5 each and the draw will take place on May 29, 2020 at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Conference Centre, Burlington, ON. The Charities Lottery is provincially licensed under the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Commission and is administered by the Ontario State Office under the authority of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Tickets are now available for sale from Knights of Columbus members, at hosted events in commercial outlets such as shopping malls or at their local Council community events.

Major prize winners will be published on June 15, 2020 in the Toronto Star, and a searchable list of winners will be posted online at www.ontariokofc.ca
