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 celebrating the 50th anniversary of its conception. 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.
Each Knights of Columbus local council that is participating in the sale of tickets will also receive a portion of the funds to support a local initiative or charity in their area. 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.
SINCE THE BEGINNING…
Stalwart in the cause of inclusion, Knights of Columbus has spread awareness of the Special Olympics movement since the beginning on Soldier’s Field in Chicago 1968. Five decades of continued support has empowered many individuals within the community and for that, we are most grateful.
