Local Non Profit ‘Music Lottery’ Takes Big Step Towards Lifting Up Music Venues and Musicians

Music Lottery, a bi-weekly raffle program for music fans in British Columbia, has launched their redesigned website with a subscription offer to make ticket ordering easy for customers – http://musiclottery.ca

 

The new website expands on the Music Lottery program, a bi-weekly Province wide 50/50 raffle, where a single winner takes half of the jackpot and the rest of the proceeds supports live music programming in underserved communities.   Previously sold through a handful of performance venues, raffle tickets are now also available for order through musiclottery.ca


Features of the new site, which is fully responsive and optimised to be mobile-friendly, include a “50/50 Club” subscription offer for easy participation in every draw, multiple modes of participation for venue operators, promoters, festival organizers and other groups that use music as a way to engage community in a meaningful way, and news about upcoming events supported by Music Lottery.

 

The new Music Lottery site offers up a novel, yet evolutionary program that will assist in the future of music funding across the province.  With jackpots upwards of $2,000 every two weeks and growing, this expansion gives music fans across BC the chance to win and presents a new way to defend and invigorate the music scene in our province, and their local communities.    

 

“It was surprising and exciting to win the draw, and the fact that the proceeds support live music makes me feel really good about buying my tickets.” – Michael Lee, Winner of the August 30th, 2019 draw


As well as making the raffle winners very happy with cash prizes, Music Lottery has generated close to $17,000 in grants to benefit community venues and artists in BC this year. The goal is to significantly increase that number by using the new website to make participating in the raffle easy, reduce operational costs and put more money into the pockets of artists and support workers who help us all hear new music.
