Learning from our experience on Sunday, we are moving this weekend’s raffle ticket selling event to the Fresh Air Experience store on Harvey across from Orchard Park.
Why you should care:
Every athlete is expected to sell a minimum of one book of 10 raffle tickets before the Apple Loppet draw date. Your parent committee executive has taken the initiative to organize 3 dates to give you an opportunity to sell your tickets.
What you need to do:
At the March 2012 parent meeting, the 2012/13 budget was approved requiring fundraising in the amount of $10,000 (about $200 per athlete) in order to fund this year’s race program. The discussion was very specific in that fundraising was strongly preferred over fee increases or service cuts. Our sponsor Fresh Air Experience stepped up in September and offered to support our efforts by donating an exceptional Nordic prize package for a raffle. At the October 2012 parent meeting, it was agreed that we would undertake the raffle project, and that every athlete would be expected to take a minimum of one book of 10 tickets. This is the best opportunity you will have this year to fulfill your fundraising obligation. Click here for the flyer with details of the prizes. Tickets are $5.00 each.
