CAHA Hockey Families –

One of our most important Fundraisers of the year, the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation 50/50 raffle, is happening – TODAY -  Saturday December 15th!   https://bluejackets5050.com/ 

You do not have to be at Nationwide Arena to participate in the 50/50 event.  You can purchase 50/50 tickets online or through the Blue Jackets app on your phone.  You can purchase your raffle tickets starting at 5:00 PM, two hours prior to the game. 50/50 raffle ticket sales end at the end of the Second period.  If you plan to purchase tickets, then please do so as soon as possible that evening.  If we push the jackpot high early in the evening, then it may snowball to evening larger levels as more people get interested.

It's really easy – just go to https://bluejackets5050.com/  and have your credit or debit card ready to buy online! You will need code on back for Visa or Mastercard.  (Sorry No AMEX)

You can download the Jackets app now on your smartphone.  It is available at the NHL site below.  You will need to sign up on the NHL app and like your Columbus Blue Jackets. Then when raffle sales open (5pm) scroll down to the 50/50 link (at the very bottom of the app) to buy tickets. https://www.nhl.com/bluejackets/fans/app

Additionally, please “Follow” and “Like” Capital Amateur Hockey Association - CAHA on Facebook.  We have posted information about the 50/50 on Facebook to remind people of the drawing.  When you see these posts, then “Share” them (not just “like”) so that all of your friends see the 50/50 raffle opportunity.  

CAHA will get 25% of the jackpot on 50/50 night.  These proceeds go to CAHA and are used exclusively to help our program and the development of youth hockey. Please help us spread the word via social media.

ALSO – you will be receiving updates throughout the night via text to our entire organization. This worked really well last year so we are doing it again. Thank you, in advance, for your support of this fundraiser and for taking all of the messages we will be sending in order to hopefully hit another record setting night!

Thank you,

Kelley Walton on Behalf of the CAHA Board

  • Wash the hockey jersey inside-out. Turn the jersey inside-out, then place it into the washer. Doing so will help to preserve the jersey's fabric and make it less faded.


  • Use color-safe detergent. Washing your hockey jersey is safe detergent negates the fading effects of regular detergent. Purchase color-safe detergent at your local department store.


  • Wash the jersey in a gentle washing cycle and in COLD water. Unlike hot water, the cold water will not shrink the jersey. The gentle cycle of the washer allows your jersey to stay intact. In addition, the gentle cycle will keep your jersey looking soft and feeling comfortable.


  • LET IT AIR DRY DO NOT PUT IN DRYER. Just like the hot water, the hot air of a dryer will shrink your hockey jersey and loosen the adhesion of the silkscreen LOGOS, numbers and names. To properly dry your hockey jersey, put it on a hanger and hang it up in a dry place. If you have a clothes line, you can hang your jersey up outside. It should take at least 45 minutes to air dry.  If you have to use the dryer, use only the AIR SETTING and NO FABRIC SOFTENER SHEETS!!


  • Hang up your jersey in a dry place. Once it's done drying, place it in a closet or somewhere that is not filled with moisture. Moisture will make the jersey uncomfortable when you decide to wear it again.

Have a great Hockey Season!!
