The Saskatchewan Elk's are giving back to the kids in the province with the Children's Charity Draw.

There will be an early bird draw on May 14th and the main draw and 50/50 takes place on June 13th.

Children's Charity Draw Chair Harold Claffey says 50/50 tickets can now be bought online.

"So instead of buying tickets at malls for 3 for $5, you can buy them online now and the online draw is particularly timely with all the virus trouble were having. It's $50 for the lottery for all the prizes, there is also a 50-50 lottery with ticket prices ranging from $10 to $50."

Claffey also said all the money raised will stay in Saskatchewan.

"We established the Saskatchewan Pediatric Auditory rehabilitation center, or SPARC for short, in Saskatoon as part of the University hospital over 40 years ago. Part of the proceeds from this lottery will go to support that and support Saskatchewan people. It's a Saskatchewan only lottery, you have to be in Saskatchewan physically to buy a ticket."

The main draw has up to $200,000 worth of prizes with only 4,000 tickets being printed.

50-50 tickets can be purchased at https://www.elks5050.ca
