JETS fans have a chance to win the first printed Winnipeg Jets licence plate, marked #WJ0001.
On Thursday, the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation and True North Sports & Entertainment announced plans for a raffle for the licence plate. There are 15,004 tickets available -- the attendance figure at a sold-out Jets game -- for $20 each.
All proceeds go to the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation, which supports registered charities in Manitoba that focus on youth.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday and can be purchased at this season's remaining Jets home games, all Jets Gear locations or by emailing the foundation's Kait Flett. Tickets sold by email will be available at noon Saturday.
For more information on the raffle and tickets, go to the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation website or www.winnipegjets.com.
Also Thursday, the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation received a donation of $809,580 from the Manitoba government and Manitoba Public Insurance.
