A message from the State Raffle Director, Richard Armanini! Any questions or comments should be forwarded to Richard at REArmani@cox.net or telephone 480.706.9314
This message was sent to all State Officers, District Deputies, and Insurance Agents. In addition, it was sent to the Grand Knights, Deputy Grand Knights, Financial Secretaries, and Raffle. If you are not the Raffle Chairman this year, please send a message to REArmani@cox.net and indicate the new chair and his e-mail for 2012.
Questions regarding record keeping:
Do we need to record the ticket numbers that we give each Knight? No, that is not necessary. Just record the amount of money each seller returns and check that it matches the ticket stubs. Hint: Some Raffle Chairman record the number of books given to each seller and the dollar amount they return. That is an easy way to identify top sellers
Why did you say seller instead of Brother Knights? Some councils recruit other people to help sell tickets like members of the charity they name to receive the proceeds of the raffle. Hint: Ask that group to assign someone to keep the sales records and report the final number.
What is an easy way to keep records? Have your Financial Secretary provide you with a spreadsheet of all members or a printed alpha list of members to record the numbers manually. Hint: It will help to have member’s telephone number and e-mail address on the list.
Our Financial Secretary keeps manual records on ledger cards and asking him for a list of members is a lot of work for him. Send me an e-mail and request a list of your active members. We will provide you a list from the Supreme database for your council. Be sure to identify the council in your request. Hint: Copy [CC:] your Financial Secretary and Grand Knight and we will send them the list at the same time.
I do not use e-mail, so what do I do? Ask a member of your council who does use e-mail to help you. Hint: Do not tell him, but he is automatically a member of your Raffle Committee.
Why do we need to keep any kind of records? Isn’t the total dollars all that is necessary? That is two questions however, we will ask you for a list of Knights that sell over $1,000 and the number of $100 sells your councils made. Hint: Make sure your members know about the two contests. We will give each member that sells $1,000 a K of C Hat identifying them as a $1,000 seller. Knights who sell $2,000 will receive a K of C hat and shirt, and $3,000 sellers will receive a K of C hat, shirt and jacket.
