We have reached the point where we can see a glimmer of light at the end of the COVID pandemic tunnel; and we hope and pray that in the next few months ahead, we will see more normalcy return to our lives.
As churches begin to reopen to their full size capacity, as people return to their workplaces, we know that like our parish, many still suffer financially. Because of the decrease in revenues due to covid-related cancellations of fund-raising activities and a significant decrease in weekly and other offerings, the success of our Annual Mega Raffle is critical to help improve our bleak financial picture. Your parish is in need of your support of our Annual Mega Raffle to reach our sales goal of 2,000 tickets.
The price of a ticket is $25.00 and with total sales of 2,000 tickets, the 25 payouts will be $5,000, $3,750 and $2,500 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes respectively, and a maximum payout of $625 to each of the remaining 22 winners. The parish could realize revenues of $25,000, but only with your help and support. The Mega Raffle drawing will take place at Christ the King School on October 10 at 3 PM. Last year, with your help, we were able to sell 1,540 tickets bringing in $19,250 for our Parish.
We once again turn to you for your continued generosity. Please consider setting aside a few extra dollars to support this fund-raising event. Tickets can be ordered by completing the MEGA RAFFLE FORM and returning it with your payment to the Parish Office before October 2, 2021. Tickets can also be purchased through the ONLINE GIVING.
