Military Bowl fans have a new way to win and support active-duty and veteran service members!

The Military Bowl Foundation is conducting a 50/50 raffle in conjunction with the Military Bowl presented by Peraton, benefiting the USO. As with a traditional 50/50 raffle, fans can purchase tickets at the stadium on gameday. However, this year, fans located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, also are able to purchase raffle tickets online from now through this year’s bowl game, which matches Boston College and East Carolina on Monday, December 27 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. Fans will also be able to purchase through the Military Bowl Mobile App!

The winning raffle ticket, which will be picked during the fourth quarter of the Military Bowl, will receive half of the prize pool. The other half will be donated to the USO and Patriot Point, the Military Bowl Foundation’s 294-acre retreat for recovering service members, their families and caregivers.

A basic raffle package of three tickets can be purchased for $5; a bronze package of 10 raffle tickets is $10; silver package of 40 raffle tickets is $20; and a gold package of 100 raffle tickets is $40. Military Bowl game tickets can be purchased at
