The Saskatchewan Roughriders are hoping “The Rider Nation” can come through for Saskatchewan communities affected this month by flooding.
From now until kickoff against Ottawa on Friday night. five dollars from every ticket sold will go to the Canadian Red Cross to assist in clean-up efforts for those in need.
The money raised will help in three ways:
1. Clean up kits.
2. The ability to have trained volunteers and prepositioned supplies throughout the province is KEY to allowing the Red Cross to be able to help during flood, fire or other weather disturbance.
3. All funds collected will be used for supporting communities in their recovery/clean-up efforts or to better prepare communities for future situations but will not duplicate other support.
Season ticket holders or those who already have a ticket to the game can donate to relief efforts by going directly to the Red Cross’ website.
The Riders will also give fans a great purchase option for this Friday’s game. With the ME + 3 option you can purchase three game tickets and get the fourth for free!
