The Highland park Lawn Bowling Club, which has been an oasis of green providing recreational and social activities for the Ottawa community for the last 106 years, is in dire need of financial support as a result of exorbitant property tax increases over the past several years and a sharp decrease in income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To alleviate this situation tickets sales for a widely enjoyed game of chance, Chase The Ace, will begin on August 28 at three community locations: the Clocktower and Barley Mow pubs plus our clubhouse at 439 Golden Avenue. The rules of the game will be posted at each of these sites.
Tickets will be 5 for $5.00. The weekly draw will award 20% of the weekly sales to the lucky ticket holder, 30% will be added to the Jackpot and 50% will help the Highland Park Lawn Bowling Club stay green.
As a result the Jackpot will increase weekly until the lucky winner draws the Ace Of Spades and is awarded its entire contents. At that point a new raffle will commence.
The first winning ticket will be drawn at 7pm on Friday, September 4, at the Clocktower, 418 Richmond Road – followed by draws each Friday at the same location and time.
Your support through this game will be appreciated greatly.
Posters are available for anyone wishing to help promote this effort.
This raffle is held under Ontario’s AGCO RAFFLE LICENCE NUMBER M820289.
