2017-2018 CES Power Draw
Posted on June 7th, 2017
Thank you all again for the amazing support in our CES Power Draw fundraiser that took place over this past year! It has been very successful in raising just over $9,500!! We have decided to go ahead with this same fundraiser for this next school year so we need your help again as we are hoping to make it even more successful this year!
So welcome to our 2nd Annual CES Power Draw! We have had lots of excitement over the past year with so many winners and we hope you are as excited about this again this year as we are!
The CES Power Draw is a 40-week gift card raffle fundraiser (see attached prize schedule). Every Thursday beginning September 28, 2017 through to June 28, 2018 we will draw for a $500 gift card. Additionally there are 2 early bird prizes to be won, making the total value of prizes to be won $21,750!!!
Every ticket is eligible for multiple draws throughout the year, for example if you purchase 1 ticket before the 1st early bird draw being June 29, 2017 your 1 ticket will be entered to win every single week of gift cards plus the 2 early bird draws! Tickets are $50 each.
And while we realize this may seem expensive for 1 ticket the benefits are: • Potential to spend much less on school fundraisers than what you have in the past; • No discount card/stuff you don’t need. Instead you can win terrific, useful, and needed prizes; • Instead of just an opt-out with nothing in return, this is an opt-out with benefits; • All CES fundraising needs will be met and then some if we sell out of tickets; and • With 42 draws this works out to be a cost to you of $1.19 per draw, you can’t beat that! In following our proposed opt-out amounts, we are asking each family with 1 CES child to buy/sell at least 1 ticket; for families with 2+ CES children we asking you to buy/sell at least 2 tickets. The purchase of a Power Draw ticket is not mandatory, but we encourage you to support this initiative as the proceeds will directly benefit your children at CES by provide them with additional educational materials, resources, experiences, and much more!
