There has always been an element to Utica Comets games that has catapulted not only the success of the Comets organization, but specifically, the Rob Esche “Save of the Day” Foundation. The 50/50 raffle has become the highest revenue generator for the Save of the Day Foundation, generating over $500,000 in revenue since 2013. Volunteers walk the concourse during all Comets home games, selling tickets to hopeful Comets fans. By utilizing the Utica Comets home games as a platform to sell 50/50 tickets, the Save of the Day Foundation has had the opportunity to donate to a plethora of local charities, families, and children throughout the Mohawk Valley.
50/50 raffle proceeds benefit the Save of the Day Foundation and are not available for outside group participation.
