Charity Raffle Wrap Up

Brother Raffle Chairman, in the old days, the deadline for selling tickets was the first weekend in May.  Now with computers and cell phones, the deadline can move closer to the convention and you can actually sell tickets up to the week before the convention.

Now is the time for multitasking, you need [1] to remind everyone for the need to reach your goal or the stretch goal.  [2] At the same time, prepare the tickets for the raffle.  The process:

1.     Use your raffle committee or volunteers to help prepare the ticket stubs.  Use this project to get members involved with a council activity. 
2.     Remove the staple/tab to separate the books of tickets.
3.     Make sure all the tickets have a name, 10 digit telephone number, and Seller Name
4.     Stamp or write your council number on the back of the ticket.  This validates the ticket for eligibility and is necessary to award the bonus if we reach the 10% growth in sales.
5.     In addition, you need to provide us with number of Century Blocks of tickets your council members sold and the names of the Knights that sold over $1,000 or more. See below. If you do not have any mark the form NA and include your Council number. Use forms on ‘yellow’ pager if you can find the originals.

If you or someone from your council is attending the State Convention and will bring the raffle material they need to know to:

1.     Deposit all personal check and cash with your Fin Sec and have the Treasurer cut a check for the total amount of tickets soldPlease do not bring personal check or cash to the convention.  If this is a problem, contact me ASAP on my cell phone. [480.818.1774]
2.     Communicate with the Grand Knight, Delegate, or District Deputy to make sure they understand the process.  Every year someone brings only tickets without money or a check without tickets and/or not report.  We need all three, a report, stubs, and a council check.
3.     Keep all three items [Report, stubs and council check] together.  The DEADLINE to turn in tickets is SATURDAY AT NOON].
4.     Bring [1] State Raffle Report, [2] Century and $1K form, [3] ticket stubs and [4] Council Check to the convention
5.     Turn in the tickets Friday or Saturday morning before 12:00 noon.

Thanks everyone for your help with this very important Charity Raffle.  C U at the convention!
