This year we’ve incorporated a fundraising program that allows the greater community to support various teams, schools, clubs and youth organizations across Ontario.  $3 from each ticket purchased can be allocated to an organization of the ticket buyer’s choice.  Ticket purchases can be made either online or via the MLSE Group Sales rep for (10+ tickets).  A cheque will be issued to recipient organizations approximately 4 – 6 weeks after the event.
To qualify for the fundraising program, organizations must:
  1. Complete our online fundraiser interest form.  They will receive a confirmation e-mail with an introduction to our MLSE Groups Sales Rep within 24 hours
  2. Purchase initial 15 tickets with our MLSE Groups Sales rep. Group ticket price include taxes are $13, $29, and $35 depending on seat/level.  NOTE: these 15 tickets can be purchased from any section.    Once the initial purchase is made, the group’s name will be added to the drop down list on the Raptors 905 ticket purchase website.
  3. Spread the word within your community and networks by simply.  Ask for their support by selecting your group in the drop down list as the recipient organization from their ticket purchase.  And ask your network to spread it to their networks.  It means more $$ to your organization.  NOTE: online ticket purchases are subject to PayPal and FEVO ticket fees.
