Dear Las Cruces Catholic School families,
In 2008, after my Grandpa passed away; while I was the Grand Knight, the Knights of Columbus Las Cruces Council 1226 created an Endowment Fund. This Endowment Fund was created to offer scholarships to students attending Las Cruces Catholic School, as my grandparents understood the value of a Catholic education. On my Grandpa’s barber salary, they sent five children to Catholic school.
Between 2008 and 2017, the Fund has given $10,000 to LCCS for scholarships. For 2018, the Endowment has issued a check to LCCS for $5,000. In order to ensure that the Endowment can continue to issue annual checks to LCCS, we are having a reverse raffle.The cost of a ticket is $125, which entitles the ticket holder to dinner for two, dancing, and one raffle ticket.
As we all know, life happens and the Endowment’s annual fundraiser wasn’t exempt. In the beginning we had three reverse raffles; however, we haven’t had one since 2011. For those who attended in the past, you know the event is a good time!! The most significant change is that we increased the chances of winning (only 200 tickets sold versus 250) and the number of times a ticket could win! The total payout for the event is $6,500!! One other change is that we will be serving a plated meal (not buffet) from Chala’s Wood Fire Grill. Additional meal tickets can be purchased as well, for $25 per ticket.
Please forward the information along to anyone (in town or out of town) who may be interested in supporting this worthy cause. You may not be able to attend the event and that’s okay, as you don’t have to be present to win. If you don’t want to purchase a ticket, but want to support the event, no problem. We are also accepting donations, of any amount, for the Endowment.
