50/Fifty

How many of you have attended a high school football game on a fall Friday evening? Have you ever attended a church picnic or a school function?  One of the standard fund-raising activities at these events is the 50/50 raffle.  In case you are not sure what this is, you purchase raffle tickets and the winner gets one half of the total take of the raffle.  I have been to some where the prize is well over one thousand dollars.  The other half of the take is given to the fund-raising group or some charity.  It is all good.
