Raffle Q & A
At Challenge in Edmonton, an exciting new chapter in Fundraising for our Section was unveiled. The Section has launched a Raffle to enhance funding initiatives for our sport. Below is information for Clubs and Skating Schools that are interested in this project and also for potential purchasers of tickets.
How do Clubs/Skating Schools access the tickets? Can individuals request books of tickets directly from the Section Office?
Clubs/skating schools can request the Section Office to send books of tickets for their members to sell. Individuals are encouraged to get books of tickets through their local club/skating school.
Is there a limit on the number of tickets a club can attain or sell?
50,000 tickets have been printed. Twenty-Five (25) tickets per book. There is no limit on the number of tickets a Club/skating school can sell. It is suggested that Clubs/skating schools initially request the number of books that they think can be sold by their members. More can be requested if needed.
Any rules about the selling?
Tickets can be sold in Alberta ONLY. Ticket purchasers do not have to be residents of Alberta, but tickets have to be sold in the province. Purchasers must be 18 or older.
