Proceeds of this event will go to SKETCH which was founded in 1996 in Toronto. SKETCH is a community arts initiative helping young people living on the margins, between the ages of 16-29. SKETCH has studios dedicated to visual arts, movement and theatre, industrial arts, enviro and culinary arts, screen-printing, ceramics, music recording, and more.
Youth come to SKETCH because it’s an inclusive, safe space where they experience the transformative power of the arts, develop their leadership and self-sufficiency, and cultivate social and environmental change through the arts.

In partnership with the Rotary Club of Toronto, our Rotaract Club of Toronto has an amazing opportunity to contribute to charitable organizations at the Toronto Argonauts home games. I didn’t really know what to expect when I signed up for this activity, except that I would probably be nervous through most of the evening as we were selling 50/50 tickets; but boy, was I pleasantly surprised.
In addition to contributing to such a good cause (each week they donate to various youth / city initiatives), I didn’t expect it to be so much fun to sell 50/50 tickets to thousands of dressed-up, energy-high fans at the Rogers Centre.
It was a really fun challenge because what you realize shortly after approaching people to buy tickets is that the tickets end up selling themselves. We sold out by the 2nd quarter! I also didn’t expect it to be so much fun meeting new people, and it was refreshing when some of them were interested to know how the proceeds contributed to a charity and what Rotary is about.
The winning ticket is always drawn during the 4th quarter of the game, and on average, the winnings are five to seven thousand dollars (which means about the same amount goes to charity each game!). I would recommend participation from all Rotaractors in this activity; not only are you contributing to a great cause, you are also making new friends at the game, bonding with fellow Rotaractors, and you get to catch the Toronto Argonauts in action too!
We recently had a past guest speaker, Alina Islam who is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner.
