Car Raffle

How it works

The Raffle
St. Mary's has four new cars that we will give to the holders of the winning raffle tickets on Saturday, May 18, 2013. The drawings will be held at Noon, 1, 2, and 3 P.M. in our Burgundy Room (below the church).

Ticket sales will be split with 50% ($2.50) going to your organization and 50% ($2.50)to Saint Mary's. Church if tickets are returned by 7 P. M. Wednesday, May 15, 2013. If tickets are returned on Thursday, May 16 or Friday, May 17, 2013, the split will be 80% for St. Mary's and 20% to your organization.

All tickets must be returned before 5 P.M. Friday, May 17, 2013. Group returns will not be accepted on raffle day unless previous arrangements have been made.

On raffle day, May 18, food and drink, raffling of theme baskets, 50-50 drawings and other activities for children will be found indoors. Beginning at noon, we will draw a winning ticket from the raffle pool 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 the keys to a brand new car.

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 9, 2013 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. where we will hand out the raffle tickets. Each raffle ticket sold will be 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.

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 A. M. and 5 P. M. weekdays. Instructions for making your returns and posters to advertise your sales will be available 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 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. Complete the application form as soon as possible.
