Fundraising:

  • Rider Game Info: There are 10 Roughrider home games and the RODS receive 10 spots for inside sales liquor sales.  Volunteers will be required to mix drinks and serve customers.  Payouts are done 2 to 3 months after the end of the football season usually January/February.  Payouts are based on the gross funds received divided by the number of hours worked.  Historically, football games have paid out $15 to $18 per hour. We do not know how much money we will receive for any given year as it is based on sales and is impacted by weather and attendance at the Rider Games. The clubs hold back 15%  of the overall payout for general revenue. You will need a special occasion responsible service certificate to work the games.  The course costs $10 and a copy of the certificate needs to go the person organizing the Rider games.
