Hello Everyone!


Now that we have all the March Madness gift cards (Thank You!), it is time to sell our raffle tickets!


Every day in March we will be drawing winners from our raffle entries to win a gift card. I am attaching a copy of the gift card calendar. As you will see, each week we have “Super Saturday” with a $50 gift card value, as well as a $50 drawing on St. Patrick's Day. On each Tuesday, we will have TWO winners drawn. Winning tickets will be placed back in the drawing and eligible for drawing again for the remainder of the month—this means every ticket purchased equals a chance to win 38 times!

Ticket prices are 1 for $10, 3 for $25, or 5 for $40. I have also attached a sale log to help you keep track of the tickets you sell. This sale log will be the official record of tickets sold, but we have actual tickets you can hand out to buyers along with a copy of the calendar showing prizes so they can follow along in the fun for the month.


Every family will be required to sell at least $75 of tickets. For every $50 sold over the minimum required, you will earn an entry for yourself in the drawing. In addition, the swimmer who sells the highest value of tickets will win a special prize as well as bragging rights! Don’t worry... the prize will leave no doubt who the winner is! ( wink wink)

Remember, what we earn in fundraising will offset costs to keep our registration fees down!


Please feel free to start selling right away! I have attached the sale log, the calendar and the ticket sheet for you. I will also have some poolside if you wish. Sales will continue through 2/24 and sales sheets need to be in by 2/25 in order to get all the tickets into the drawing.

We will post the winners each day on our Facebook page and on Twitter. We will also notify the swimmer who sold the winning ticket each day and they will be responsible for delivering the great news and the gift card prize.


We are hoping with the national appeal of the gift cards, we can open up the pool of people we can sell to including out of town friends and family. We are also looking for opportunities to sell tickets in the community. If you know of any local events happening in February at which we may be able to sell tickets, please let me or another Board Member know. We want to make this as fun and easy for everyone!

Please let me know if you have any questions! Good Luck and SELL, SELL , SELL!!
