Wow, Tucson Country Day School! You sure have found a great – and easy – way to raise money for clubs, field trips, classroom items and more!
Winners were recently announced for Jim Click’s eighth annual “The Millions for Tucson Raffle” – and while our school’s family, friends, students and staff who participated didn’t win one of the three prizes available, we believe we are all winners with the amount that our school raised from taking part in the raffle!
Between a variety of clubs, grade levels and individuals at TCDS, our school sold 734 raffle tickets – raising more than $18,000 for school-related purposes! That is amazing! CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all who sold and bought raffle tickets on behalf of TCDS. This is a huge leap from last year’s raffle ticket sales at school when a total of just 18 tickets were sold by one club.
Among the participants selling raffle tickets here at school, the majority of raffle ticket sales were sold for Team DC – middle school students raising money for a three-day school trip to Washington, D.C. in the spring. Also included are National Junior Honor Society which raised $1,200 for their club; the kindergarten team raised money for field trip transportation; Elementary Spanish teacher Senora Elsa raised funds for the Spanish Department; and Mrs. St. Amand raised funds for classroom items.
According to Jim Click’s “Millions for Tucson” raffle website, “All Greater Tucson-area charities with a 501c3 IRS Letter of Determination” are eligible to participate in the raffle. 394 local charities participated in this year’s Jim Click raffle. In all, $1,031,000 was raised – and each organization keeps 100% of the proceeds they raised! What a wonderful opportunity Jim Click provides with this raffle.
