Leap at Shrine Club’s cash calendar

This year is a leap year, so there's has one extra chance to win

Shrine Club president Colin Craig wants to make sure people know their limit and play within it.

This year, says Colin Craig, it makes more sense than ever to buy a Shrine Club cash calendar.

That’s because, he said, it’s a leap year, so there’s one extra chance to win.

The calendars, he said, went on sale this week in a bid to raise funds for the Shrine Club’s transportation program, which sees young hospital patients driven in one of the club’s luxury vans to Children’s Hospital, Sunnybrook Hospital or one of two participating hospitals in the United States.

The calendars, Craig said, cost $20 each and normally give the purchaser 365 chances to win if their name is drawn on a weekday, $100 for a weekend and $1,000 on January 1, July 1 and December 4.

The draw for all the prizes, he said, will be made on Dec. 30 this year, but Shrine organizers will keep the information about the winners a closely guarded secret until the month of the win.

“Anyone can go onto our website that is listed on the back of the calendar, which will list the winners’ names and the amounts,” Craig said.

“All the January winners will be mailed out on February 1 and so on.”

The calendars, under licence 35373, will go on sale at Wembley Mall shortly, he said, but they can also be picked up from any Shrine Club member.
