The Edmonton Football Team is hosting its first ever online 50/50 raffle and its in support of the Winnifred Stewart Association’s Joey Moss Memorial Fund.
Wayne Gretzky and Moss were together for years in Edmonton and fostered a close relationship. Longtime friend Dwayne Mandrusiak said, “When I had my assistants and they would bug me I used to say, ‘I would trade you all for another Joey Moss, the problem is there’s only one.’”
The 50/50 is the cap on the final day of the team’s 14 Days of Grey Cup. Ticket sales will open at 10:00 a.m. MT on Sunday, November 22 and end at 8:00 PM MT on the same day.
