On January 30th, Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky announced a renewed lottery agreement, which guarantees that sport, culture and recreation organizations will continue to receive and benefit from Saskatchewan Lotteries proceeds over the next five years. This morning, the Government of Saskatchewan, Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association signed the agreement.
"Saskatchewan Lotteries is a successful fundraiser for community sport, culture and recreation," said Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky. “The Saskatchewan Lotteries provides opportunities to more than 600,000 participants in many communities across our province. These far-reaching benefits would not be possible without our partners, Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association, and of course thousands of volunteers.”
Proceeds from Saskatchewan Lotteries support over 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in the province, reaching 1,000 Saskatchewan communities and over 600,000 registered participants each year.
