Toronto – Bump 50:50, a division of Sportech Racing // Digital, announced that it has been selected to provide the technologies and services to conduct 50/50 charitable raffles by the Padres Foundation.
The Padres Foundation is Bump’s first contract with an MLB team-affiliated charity, however Bump has helped generate amazing 50/50 raffle results at baseball events before. Earlier this spring, Bump technology generated a two-game jackpot of $290,000 – a Quebec and MLB 50/50 raffle record – for the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation, which hosted exhibition games featuring the Toronto Blue Jays.
The proven Bump 50:50 package includes point-of-sale software and hardware, a triple-redundant central system for real-time raffle processing, and services that include monitoring and immediate support. In addition, The Padres Foundation staff will benefit from Bump’s proven implementation and operations package, which has helped drive the success of 50/50 raffle programs for customers throughout North America.
Dan Tanenbaum, President of Bump 50:50, stated, “We are thrilled to welcome our first Major League Baseball team charity to Bump 50:50. The $290,000 two-game jackpot result at the Montreal MLB exhibition demonstrates just how effective the Bump 50:50 technology and support package can be and we’re excited to put them to work in San Diego to help support the charitable mission of the Padres.”
