Success for All!
Lotto68 - 50/50 Draw

Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation invites all full-time, part-time and casual employees of Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools (NLPS) to sign-up for a 50/50 draw benefiting students. A $5 entry fee is deducted through NLPS payroll for a chance to win the Lotto68 50/50 draw.

Each payday, a deduction is made from your pay cheque. Half of this deduction is a non-tax deductible contribution to the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation (NLSF) to provide scholarships to graduating students. The other half is placed in the prize pool. 100% of that prize pool is awarded to the staff member whose name is drawn.

Winners took home an average of $600 and in June 2021, NLSF provided $11,000 in scholarships to graduating students. Maybe you could be next - GOOD LUCK!
