The Tampa Bay Sports Commission is hosting a community-wide 50/50 Raffle from August 11, 2018 – August 27, 2017 at TeamTampaBayForJoeyJ.com and select Tampa Bay sporting events.

The pot of the 50/50 Raffle is split in half, with half going to the lucky winner and the other half going to benefit the Joey Johnston Trust and the Johnston Family for future medical expenses after Joey Johnston’s recent accident.
