The Knights of Columbus Ontario State Council organizes an annual Lottery as a fundraiser to support several charities in Ontario. For the 2020 Charities Lottery, sales started last Nov 2019 for a scheduled draw in May 29th, 2020.

Due to COVID19, back in March 2020, the Knights of Columbus Ontario State Council approached the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Commission of Ontario (the Agency that governs lotteries in Ontario) and the licensing body approved re-scheduling the draw date from May 29th, 2020 to October 30th, 2020

The change of date was communicated to all the Ontario Councils in order for them to inform their members and to the extent possible parishioners of the local churches that purchased tickets. The Ontario Knights of Columbus website www.ontariokofc.ca/lottery was also updated with a poster showing the change of date.

We apologize for any inconvenience the change of date may have caused to members of the public who purchased tickets to participate in the charity fundraiser.
