Akwesasne – CKON has received calls from radio bingo players asking for clarification on the distribution of 50/50 radio bingo funds. CKON is happy to explain how the 50/50 funds are distributed.
The 50/50 cards are sold for $2.00 per half-sheet. The funds generated from the sales of the 50/50 cards are used to first pay the winner of the 50/50 bingo game one-half of what is generated.

Funds remaining after the bingo winner and the recipient is paid goes into the community fund and is used towards requests for donations. These donations include but are not limited to:
