A special guest has joined the 50/50 for Change initiative this morning at Canadian Tire in Swift Current.

World War II veteran John Watson is helping sell tickets until around noon hour today.

The proceeds from 50/50 for Change this year will go to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 56. They intend to use the funding for renovations to the northside entrance and also help out the local cadet programs.

Members of the Legion will be selling tickets at Canadian Tire today until 5 p.m. and then from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. tomorrow.

People can also visit the Legion in Swift Current during its hours of operation today to buy tickets. 

Time is running out to purchase tickets with the grand prize draw happening tomorrow at 2 p.m.

The current total is sitting at $14,200.
