Split the Pot Raffle

The Minnesota Wild and Xcel Energy Center host an in-arena "Split the Pot" Raffle to benefit local charities, including the Minnesota Wild Foundation. The Raffle is held at every home game during the season. Raffle tickets may be purchased from the time doors open through the end of the second intermission. The winning number, determined through a random drawing, is announced during the third period. One lucky winner takes home half the gross proceeds from that game's raffle ticket sales, up to $10,000. The game's designated charity will receive the remaining funds.

Purchasing raffle tickets gives fans the chance to win cash and Create a Greater State of Hockey by supporting a local non-profit that supports the game of hockey or focuses on improving the lives of families in the State of Hockey. To date, over $1.9 million has gone to local charities through the raffle program. Raffle beneficiaries are selected by the Minnesota Wild Foundation Board of Directors in advance of each season.

Population(s) Served

Participating in the Wild Magazine/Program Sales initiative at Wild home games gives Minnesota Hockey member associations across the State of Hockey an opportunity to team build and enjoy the atmosphere of Xcel Energy Center on a game night while fundraising for their association at the same time.
Youth hockey associations with a 501(c) (3) designation are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to sell game programs at a Wild game, and for their efforts, they will receive a one-time, $1,000 grant from the Minnesota Wild Foundation.

Population(s) Served

The Prairie Island Indian Community has partnered with the Minnesota Wild Foundation to create the Prairie Island Indian Community's Game Program Sales Match Program. Through the program, local youth hockey associations are given the opportunity to fundraise for their associations by selling game programs at Wild home games. The Prairie Island Indian Community then matches the total dollars sold in game programs throughout the Wild season. Through the Prairie Island Indian Community/Minnesota Wild Foundation Scholarship, funds from the program sales match are earmarked to directly benefit youth playing hockey in the St. Paul area. The Minnesota Wild Foundation recognizes that the city we share and was once recognized as Minnesota's hockey hotbed, has seen youth hockey participation numbers decline significantly over the past 35 years. The Wild Foundation believes it is important to do its part to preserve the great hockey tradition in St. Paul and help children/families afford to play the game they love.
