Weekly Catch the Ace Update:

The most recent Catch the Ace Draw was on Friday March 8, and the weekly winner was Wanda Riddell who had picked envelope #1. That envelope contained the queen of spades. Wanda won the weekly jackpot of $40.00.

The next draw will be on Friday March 15th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. There are 50 cards left. If all the tickets sell, and the Ace of Spades is found, the maximum jackpot will be $605. While that sum is nothing to sneeze at, most of us who buy tickets hope that the Ace stays hidden for a while in order to build up the jackpot, but by buying tickets this early in the Catch the Ace Game you do three things – raise money for Strathcona Branch; raise money for the charities that Strathcona Branch supports with the proceeds from Catch the Ace; and increase the pot for the weekly winner each week. So come on down to the Branch and pick up your ticket of tickets this week.

Simply purchase a ticket ($5.00 each) at Strathcona Legion and on Friday night at 7:00 P.M., a ticket will be drawn and someone will win 20% of the weekly sales. You will then choose an envelope from a board that holds all 52 cards out of a deck. If the ACE OF SPADES is chosen, you will win an additional 30% of the weekly sales. If the ACE OF SPADES is NOT chosen, the 30% of the weekly sales will go into a progressive pot. It will continue to build each week until the ACE OF SPADES is chosen.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A LEGION MEMBER TO PLAY. Just drop in to the Legion, anytime it is open, to buy your ticket at the bar.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE THERE FOR THE DRAW. When you purchase your ticket, you will put your name, phone number and envelope number (1 - 52), that you would like to open. We will open the envelope the night of the draw to see if the ACE OF SPADES is inside the envelope. If not, new tickets may be purchased for the next week's draw. You will still win your 20% of the weekly sales.

The raffle is being used as a FUNDRAISER for the Legion. A portion of the Legion's share is given in the community as prescribed by Lottery license.
