St. Mary's Car Raffle offers a simple way to power your organization's fundraising goals. Participating in our raffle is easy to organize, doesn't put a dent in your treasury, and has the potential for making considerable profits.
A successful fundraising event requires more than good intentions. But large events such as craft shows, auctions or bazaars may be driven by big committees and can guzzle your time and/or cash. Our raffle is an efficient money maker. It merely requires a small amount of paperwork and a little bit of organization. Best of all, we pay all the costs associated with administering the event. You simply sell the raffle tickets, keep 50% of the sales, and return the other 50% to Saint Mary's. It's that easy!
How it Works
St. Mary's has four new cars that will be awarded to the holders of the winning raffle tickets on Raffle Day, Saturday, May 17, 2014. The drawings will be held at Noon, 1, 2, and 3 pm in our Burgundy Room (below the church).
Ticket sales will be split with 50% ($2.50 per ticket) going to your organization and 50% ($2.50 per ticket) to Saint Mary's if tickets are returned by 7 pm Wednesday, May 14, 2014. If tickets are returned on Thursday, May 15 or Friday, May 16, 2014, the split will be 80% ($4.00 per ticket for St. Mary's and 20% ($1.00 per ticket) to your organization.
All tickets must be returned before 5pm Friday, May 16, 2014. Group returns will not be accepted on Raffle Day unless previous arrangements have been made.
On Raffle Day, May 17, food and drink, as well as activities for adults and children including raffling of theme baskets, 50-50 drawings, face painting, and carnival style games, will be offered from 11 am to 3 pm in our Burgundy Room. Beginning at Noon, we will draw a winning ticket from the raffle ticket drum and immediately announce the holder of the corresponding ticket stub (winners need not be present). Those who spend the day with us will share in the thrill that comes with awarding four lucky people a brand new car. No keys will be given on the day of the event.

How to Participate
Fill out the participants' information form and return it to St. Mary's. As a participant, you will be invited to a raffle kick-off on Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 9 am to 1 pm where we will hand out the raffle tickets. Each raffle ticket sold is good for all four drawings. In addition to receiving your raffle tickets, St. Mary's will also provide you with information and posters for advertising this event. Or you may print your own.
If you or a representative of your organization cannot attend, tickets will be available for pick up in the Parish House located at 7401 Buchanan Street (behind the church) between 9 am and 5 pm weekdays. Instructions for making your returns and posters to advertise your sales will also be distributed when picking up tickets. If you can't be present or pick up the tickets at the Parish House, tickets can be sent by UPS at the organization's expense. Please note this need on your application form.
You will receive a confirmation letter in February, along with a card stating your organization name and number of tickets ordered. This card will be required when picking up tickets. Since St. Mary's assumes all paper work and the cost of administering the raffle, your efforts can be directed to selling tickets and realizing your organization's goals. Please consider carefully the number of tickets your organization sold last year and set your goal accordingly. Returning organizations are permitted to receive up to 125% of the number of tickets they sold the previous year. Complete and return the application form as soon as possible.
