This weekend is the start of our annual coffee and donuts in the Parish Hall after Sunday Mass. What a great time to also start our raffles for our prizes.
The quilt which has been donated by a wonderful couple who attend our Masses depicts “Our Lady of Guadalupe”. The tickets for this prize are green in color and are $5 each or 5 for $20. The drawing date for this prize will coincide with the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12th.
The statue was purchased by our council specifically for our Keep Christ in Christmas raffle. The statue depicts our “Holy Family” and is 17” tall. It is valued at $950. The tickets for this prize are grey in color and also are to be sold for $5 each or 5 for $20. This drawing will occur during Santa’s visit with the kids in mid December.
These two raffles are being managed by our Brother Ed Agnew and his wife Gerry! There email is email@example.com. Lets please help them and our council sell tickets after each mass from now till the drawing dates,. The tickets, containers to hold tickets, 8X10 photos of the prizes and 2 change bags with $50 each will be located in the money/ushers closet in the back of the church. Please keep ticket colors and change bags segregated so that we can keep track financially for each prize.
Our council is counting on you to sell at each mass you attend! These Raffles have the potential to be very lucrative for our fund raising! I pray that we have a successful raffle and that we also are always blessed as we perform our service to others!
