(TSX VENTURE: FAN), is pleased to announce that the company has reached agreements with the New York Islanders and the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League and their respective foundations.

Each partnership will see both teams utilize 5050 Central's industry leading real-time 50/50 raffle system. Proceeds from the Islanders raffles at the Barclays Center will support the Islanders Children's Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting the youth of the local community by providing opportunities to children.
