THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Cathedral High School is proud to enter our fifth year of a new student fundraiser—The Luck of the Leprechaun Student Raffle. For the fifth year in a row, instead of selling magazine subscriptions, Cathedral students will be selling raffle tickets to raise money to support our tuition assistance program. Plus, we have also created a new philanthropy fund that can be used by the student body to provide assistance to deserving groups of their choice. We believe learning to give back is an important part of a young person’s education which helps establish a lifelong connection with philanthropy.
Here’s how it works:
Each student is provided the opportunity to sell 25 $10 raffle tickets to earn a “Free Day” on Thursday, October 19, 2017. In addition, students who reach their quota receive a jeans/sweatpants day and top sellers may choose a charity to benefit from the money raised.
There will be three winning tickets drawn on September 22, 2017 at the half time of the Cathedral homecoming football game. First prize is $10,000, second prize is $2,500, and third prize is $ 1,000.
Your student will receive his or her ticket packet on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. The envelope will contain five books of five tickets each, collection envelopes, and an information sheet with helpful hints about the best way to sell tickets. Your student is responsible for all the tickets, which are sequentially numbered. Failure to return sold raffle tickets or unsold ticket stubs will result in families being charged accordingly.
Once a student sells a minimum of 25 tickets, he or she will receive:
Raffle Free Day
All students who meet the goal of selling 25 tickets at a total price of $250 dollars will qualify for this prize. The designated "free day" for students who sell their tickets is Thursday, October 19, 2017.
NOTE: Parents calling in an excused absence on October 19, 2017 will not be permitted to fulfill the Philanthropy requirement at Cathedral High School.
Spirit shirt and jeans/sweatpants day
As soon as the proceeds from 25 tickets are turned in, the student will be able to dress in a Cathedral spirit top and jeans until Friday, September 22, 2017. Students will receive a designated "Irish Flag" sticker to indicate he or she has reached this goal. The sticker should be placed on their iPad until the end of the sale.
All students are eligible for a donation to the charity of choice:
A percentage of every ticket sold will be given back to the Cathedral club/sport/activity of choice. In essence, the more tickets sold the more funding that clubs/sports/activities will receive from the student raffle. An approved list of clubs/sports/activities will be included in the raffle packet and posted online soon.
To view a list of approved clubs/teams/activities please click here.
Ticket stub and money collection information:
Ticket stubs and money will be collected on the days shown to the right. You do not need to turn in all your tickets on each collection day, but you will not qualify for wearing a spirit shirt and sweat pants/jeans until you turn in $250 and your 25 ticket stubs.
Note: We strongly encourage parents to write a check in lieu of sending their student in with cash. This helps with our accounting process and minimizes risks for mistakes.
What to do if you have difficulty selling tickets:
Cathedral has partnered with Coats for Kids! Earn $10.00 in Coats for Kids bucks for each new or gently-used coat (up to 2 per person) you bring in. Bring your coat to Mr. Fogel (Room #4335) ALONG WITH A BLANK RAFFLE TICKET—and that can count towards your quota!
