Golf Tournament/Auction/Raffle - This meeting was to discuss Grand Knight concerns about fund raising in the first half of the fraternal year. In light of the pandemic it was mutually agreed upon to postpone our Golf Tournament till the spring time. Bill Drobick officers that December 28th might be a good day as a Christmas tournament and also in honor of our Holy Family.
Gerry Goldsmith will research fund raising potential with Top Golf.
Mark Krysiak with Golf Tournament Committee has researched another fund raising activity via a silent web based auction that is managed by a company recommended by Dixon Golf. The web sight for review of potential is www.yourcharityauction.com/kofc. Sounds promising as a fundraiser.
Trevor discussed was a potential for a raffle that sells 500-$100 tickets with the prizes being 1-$10000, 3 - $5000, 5 - $1000 prizes for a total payout of $30,000. Net Council income could be if sold out $50,000 - $30,000(prizes) = $20,000. If less that 4000 tickets are sold the raffle then becomes a 50/50 raffle. Chuck will contact Rick Husk to see if any issues legally presents itself.
Also recommended was holding simple 50/50 raffles at regular intervals $1 each ticket or 6 for $5.
Fin Sec Andy was asked to prepare a draft budget for the fraternal year that outlines reoccurring expenditures so that the council can vote 1 time for approval for the year.
