Catholic United Financial Raffle
Starting January 15, students from Mary of Lourdes School will join students from 82 other schools across Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota in selling the $5 tickets. Each ticket purchased gives ticket buyers the opportunity to win a 2021 Ford EcoSport (or $20,000 in cash), or other great prizes totaling $40,000 in value. Best of all, every penny of every ticket sold stays at MOLS thanks to the Raffle’s sole sponsor Catholic United Financial. The St. Paul-based company provides all the prizes and promotion materials for the Raffle at no cost to the participating schools.
“Catholic United’s mission since our founding 143 years ago has included supporting Catholic education, and we couldn’t be happier or prouder to support our schools with the Catholic Schools Raffle,” explained Catholic United President Mike Ahles. “Since the program started, we have invested over one million dollars in the Raffle because we understand how this unique fundraiser greatly benefits the students and their teachers.”
Now in its twelfth year, the Catholic Schools Raffle has raised over $9.5 million for Catholic schools in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. This year, Catholic United is challenging the 82 participating schools to collectively raise $1 million during the six week selling period. To help reach this goal, Mary of Lourdes School hopes to sell enough tickets to raise $12000. The money raised allows schools like Mary of Lourdes School to provide tuition assistance, update technology systems, or to cover the cost of special learning opportunities like guest speakers and field trips.
Ticket sales begin January 15 and run through February 28. Tickets are available at participating schools and after weekend Masses. The Grand Prize drawing ceremony takes place at 11:00 a.m. (CST) on Thursday, March 11 at the Catholic United Financial Home Office in St. Paul, MN. Raffle updates and a full list of participating schools can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CatholicSchoolsRaffle.
*Tickets will be sent home with students on January 15th! Parents & students, please see the CUF Mass sign up link on School Speak to sign up to sell tickets after Masses.
