Lethbridge & District Exhibition Lotteries partners to support Lethbridge Family Services

Alberta’s premier lotteries program returns for third year


Lethbridge, Alta. – Southern Alberta’s premier lotteries program gives Albertans the chance to win big, as the Lethbridge & District Exhibition 50/50 Lottery begins its third year. This year, proceeds from the program will benefit both Lethbridge & District Exhibition (LDE) programming and Lethbridge Family Services (LFS), who have signed on as the program’s 2024 community partner.


Created to celebrate LDE’s 125th anniversary, the lotteries program celebrates LDE’s rich history in the community. Last year, the program raised more than $84,000, with 50 per cent of the total proceeds going to the lottery winner and the other 50 per cent going to support community initiatives. Tickets are available for purchase online at ldelotteries.com any time, or in-person at the Saturday Lethbridge Farmers’ Market presented by UFA and at Whoop-Up Days.

“The 50/50 Lottery is a key connection point in our community, as we are able to support our programming, give back to our community partner, and give ticket buyers the chance to win big,” says Paul Kingsmith, Director of Community Engagement, LDE. “We are thrilled to have Lethbridge Family Services join us as our charitable partner. Their work in our community touches so many people and makes our city a better place, and we are excited for the enthusiasm they’ll bring to this year’s campaign.”

Lethbridge Family Services provides highly-accredited health and social services to over 9,000 individuals and families in more than 30 communities in southwestern Alberta, through the professional services of more than 380 staff, and the support of over 550 committed volunteers. Its core departments include Counselling, Outreach & Education; DaCapo Disability Services; Home Services; and Immigrant Services. LFS volunteers will be on-site to sell tickets at the Saturday Lethbridge Farmers’ Market every Saturday through Aug. 17, as well as throughout Whoop-Up Days.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with LDE, as this partnership will enable us to enhance our services and provide even greater value to the 9,000 people we serve in our community,” says Michelle Gallucci, Director, Advancement and Communications, Lethbridge Family Services. “With LDE's support, we can better address our clients' needs, delivering innovative solutions and exceptional results.”

Tickets for the LDE 50/50 Lottery are on-sale now at ldelotteries.com and will be available through Aug. 24, the final day of Whoop-Up Days. The winner will be selected on Aug. 27. A single ticket can be purchased for $10; or they can be purchased in packages of 5 for $25 ($5 each), 25 for $50 ($2 each), 50 for $75 ($1.50 each) or 100 for $100 ($1 each).
