Cathedral High School is proud to enter our seventh year of The Luck of the Leprechaun Student Raffle. Cathedral students will be selling raffle tickets to raise money to support our tuition assistance program. Plus, we have also created a new philanthropy fund that can be used by the student body to provide assistance to deserving groups of their choice. We believe learning to give back is an important part of a young person’s education which helps establish a lifelong connection with philanthropy.
Here’s how it works:
Each student is provided the opportunity to sell 25 $10 raffle tickets to earn a “Free Day” on Wednesday, October 9, 2019. In addition, students who reach their quota receive a jeans/sweatpants day and top sellers may choose a charity to benefit from the money raised.
There will be three winning tickets drawn on September 27, 2019 at halftime of the Cathedral Homecoming football game. First prize is $10,000, second prize is $2,500, and third prize is $ 1,000.
Your student will receive his or her ticket packet no later than Friday, August 30, 2019. The envelope will contain five books of five tickets each, collection envelopes, and an information sheet with helpful hints about the best way to sell tickets. Your student is responsible for all the tickets, which are sequentially numbered.
Once a student sells a minimum of 25 tickets, he or she will receive:
Raffle Free Day
All students who meet the goal of selling 25 tickets at a total price of $250 dollars will qualify for this prize. The designated "free day" for students who sell their tickets is Wednesday, October 9, 2019.
Families with multiple students at Cathedral will receive a “ticket discount” based on the following schedule.
2 current students - 40 ticket max
3 current students - 50 ticket max
4+ current students - 55 max
NOTE: Parents calling in an excused absence on October 9, 2019 will not be permitted to fulfill the Philanthropy requirement at Cathedral High School.
Spirit shirt and jeans/sweatpants day
As soon as the proceeds from 12 tickets are turned in, the student will be able to dress in a Cathedral spirit top and sweat pants/jeans until Friday, September 27, 2019. Students will receive a designated sticker to indicate he or she has reached this goal. The sticker should be placed on their iPad or lanyard until the end of the sale.
All students are eligible for a donation to the charity of choice:
A percentage of every ticket sold will be given back to the Cathedral club/sport/activity of choice. In essence, the more tickets sold the more funding that clubs/sports/activities will receive from the student raffle. An approved list of clubs/sports/activities will be included in the raffle packet and posted online soon.
To view a list of approved clubs/teams/activities please click here (2019 list coming soon).
Ticket stub and money collection information:
Ticket stubs and money will be collected on the days shown to the right. You do not need to turn in all your tickets on each collection day, but you will not qualify for wearing a spirit shirt and sweat pants/jeans until you turn in $120 and 12 raffle tickets.
Note: We strongly encourage parents to write a check in lieu of sending their student in with cash. This helps with our accounting process and minimizes risks for mistakes.
What to do if you have difficulty selling tickets:
Cathedral has partnered with Coats for Kids! Earn $10.00 in Coats for Kids bucks for each new or gently-used coat (up to 2 per person) you bring in. Bring your coat to Mr. Fogel (Room #4335) ALONG WITH A BLANK RAFFLE TICKET—and that can count towards your quota!
