State Raffle

posted Mar 27, 2013, 8:43 PM by Keith Biegert
One of our Council's annual fundraising events is the KofC Vacation Raffle (state raffle).  In 2011-12 our participation in this activity provided the Council with $895 in income.  For every $5.00 raffle ticket that our Council sells, we get to keep $2.50.
The annual state raffle is now underway.  I want to thank those brothers who have participated thus far by selling and/or purchasing tickets.  Currently we have raised approximately $250 for the Council, but we are short of our goal ($1,250) and short of what we raised last year.
If you are not familiar with the raffle, tickets cost $5.00 each (remember $2.50 remains with the Council).  The grand prize is an Alaskan Cruise for 2 plus $700 cash; second prize is a 7 day Hawaiian vacation for 2 plus $500 cash; third thru seventh prizes are for $200 cash each.  The drawing for the prizes will take place on May 18.
We need to sell all tickets and submit all money and ticket stubs to the State Council Office by April 25, so time is short.  I am asking that you consider participating in one of two ways (or both):

1.  We need additional people to sell tickets.  If you are willing to do this, please send me an email with the number of tickets you would like to sell (include your mailing address so I can send you the tickets).  I  have bundled the tickets in packets of 10 to make it easier.

2.  Consider purchasing one or more tickets.  To purchase tickets you can see me at the Council business meeting on April 8 or you can send me a check payable to K of C Council 6650 for the number of tickets you would like to purchase.

Thank you Brothers for your participation.  As with all things....working together for a common cause we can achieve our goals.
Vivat Jesus!
