The Catch The Ace fundraising initiative raises funds for the supportive and educational programs at Gilda’s Toronto for those experiencing cancer-related stress, to restore a sense of control, redefine hope, reduce stress and isolation during and after cancer treatment for improved quality of life. All programs are provided free of charge so there is no financial barrier to accessing support in this community.
Thank you to all of you who support us through your Catch The Ace ticket purchases. The more tickets you buy, the more chances you have of winning the weekly ticket draw while helping to raise funds for Gilda’s Toronto’s cancer support groups and program.
Thank you for helping Gilda’s Toronto ensure that no one has to face cancer alone!

Please select your envelope number(s) from the Available Envelope Control Sheet and enter your selection in the Envelope No. box. If purchasing multiple tickets and want separate envelope number for each ticket, enter all envelope numbers.
Each week tickets are sold for the opportunity to select the Ace of Spades from a deck of 52 regular playing cards. Prior to the draw, each of the 52 playing cards were placed in brown envelopes. The envelopes were shuffled and numbered 1 to 52.
When tickets are purchased the buyer chooses an envelope number from a list of available numbers, then enters the number on their ticket.
Each week one ticket is drawn. The holder of that ticket automatically wins 20% of that week’s sales. The envelope number noted on the ticket is opened. If the card inside is not the Ace of Spades the card is destroyed and is no longer available for future draws. If the envelope selected is the Ace of Spades then the lottery is finished and the ticket holder wins the weekly prize plus the Ace of Spades pot.
Each week the Ace of Spades progressive pot grows by 30% of the weekly sales.
Each week the lucky winner of the draw receives 20% of the weekly sales.
