Broncos 50/50 Raffle – opportunities for volunteer prizes from the Denver Broncos!

At each home Denver Broncos game, the NSCD holds a 50/50 raffle. We sell tickets during the pre-game tailgating through the end of the third quarter of the game.

There are two types of volunteer shifts; mobile sellers, and kiosk sellers. Mobile sellers check in 3 hours before kickoff and sell through the end of halftime. Kiosk sellers check in 2 hours before kickoff and sell through the end of the 3rd quarter. At the end of the third quarter, we draw the ONE winning ticket. The winner receives 50% of the raffle pot and the NSCD and the Broncos charities receive the other a half: a win-win!

NEW THIS SEASON: 1) At each Broncos home game raffle, the Broncos will sponsor an attendance prize drawing. When you check in to sell raffle tickets, your name will be entered to win an autographed item! The name will be drawn before any volunteers check out, so the winner will go home with their item! 2) The top selling team* from each game will be entered into a drawing to attend an off-season Broncos practice including lunch in the team cafeteria at the UCHealth Training Center (Englewood, CO). Multiple entries are permitted if you are the top selling team* at multiple home games. *no more than (4)-people per team, larger groups will be placed in teams up to (4) people.
