The jackpot for the Okanagan College Foundation’s 50/50 staff lottery is now nearly $900 per payday thanks to both 101 new participants signing up, and several existing participants increasing their bi-weekly entries.

The Okanagan College Foundation has set a goal to have 150 new players sign up in the Staff Lottery by Nov. 30, 2021. Since launching on Giving Tuesday (November 30, 2020), 101 Okanagan College employees and faculty have joined on, with the hopes of winning cash while supporting student emergency bursaries.

The latest winner was Chris Nyberg from Operations, Kelowna Campus, who won the Friday, March 26, staff lottery draw for $897.50. It’s the second time he’s won this year.

Participating in the 50/50 Staff Lottery has never been easier – a new online registration form is now available. To learn more, visit Okanagan.bc.ca/stafflottery
