Calendar Raffle Fundraiser
Dear Yarmouth Football Players and Families: August 2019
We are very excited to be kicking off another football season in Yarmouth. This letter is to organize the annual calendar raffle, which is the program’s biggest fundraiser, along with the Clam Festival. All of the proceeds are used for the expenses of the football program, and we welcome you anytime (and often!!) at our monthly meetings to learn more about the program’s activities and finances.
As in past years, we are encouraging each player to sell a minimum amount of raffle tickets ($200 for High School Players, $150 for Middle School Players, and $50 for Flag Players.) Many players have found that the easiest way to sell tickets is to send a short email message to relatives and close family friends. A sample is attached below. Players can also sell tickets door-to-door in their neighborhoods and around town.
We try hard to finish ticket sales during the summer so that it is behind us by fall, and we can focus more fully on the excitement of the season. Thank you for your help with this!
Yarmouth Football Association Board
Playing on the Yarmouth football team has been a fantastic experience for me, both athletically and personally. The discipline, teamwork, competitiveness, and spirit of football are incredibly rewarding, and I am excited to be starting another season this fall.
Our most important fundraiser for the team is an annual “calendar raffle” with cash prizes every day throughout October. Most days have a $50 prize, but you can win $100 every Friday and $1000 on October 31st – or a total of $2700! Tickets are $10 each, or six for $50.
I’ve attached an electronic copy of the tickets, along with a form that allows you to quickly fill out a six ticket sheet. Or I’d be happy to fill out your tickets for you.
Checks should be made payable to Yarmouth Football (with my name in the memo line), and you can send them either to me, or directly to Yarmouth Football, at PO Box 387, Yarmouth, ME 04096. Thank you for considering this!
