Home > News Article > The Return of Thunderballs


After a 3 year hiatus, our exciting token lottery Thunderballs is back! On May 22, 2023, right before the big parade, CCSS will be rolling 4000 golf balls down Dunsmuir Avenue in an exciting race to win one of 19 fabulous prizes. Each golf ball corresponds to a ticket. Will your golf ball be the winner?

First prize is one roundtrip flight for two guests to any regularly scheduled and marketed WestJet destination!* (*No cash value, fees, taxes, surcharges not included, blackout dates and restrictions apply). (CCSS will cover 1 checked bag/person & all taxes, fees and surcharges with receipts. No cabin upgrades).

Other prizes include cash, mini vacations, experience tickets, restaurant vouchers, massage and wellness treatments, pizzas, burritos, haircuts, lift tickets, and more. See the entire prize list here!

Tickets cost $10 for a single ticket, or get a bargain by purchasing a pack of 5 tickets for $40. Tickets are available from CCSS Board members, volunteers, or get them anytime at Moon’s Records, Seeds Natural Food Market, and Alley Cuts. Look for ticket tables which will pop up randomly around the Village, or buy one during out Cut-a-Thon at Alley Cuts on May 7th. You can also purchase tickets at the CCSS booth on Market Day, May 20th (providing they have not sold out before then). View the Rules of Play here.

Proceeds from Thunderballs go towards funding CCSS programs including our Healthy Lunch Program, After-School and Community Programs, drop-in Youth Centre, and the Cumberland Food Share.
