Raffle winners will be drawn in May, on or before the 19th, 2018. Visit our Raffle Webpage for more information.
Make sure to turn in the stub portion of the all raffle tickets filled out with at least your Name and Phone Number in the designated receptacle (see slide show). This drop off location is secured to the inside (NOT outside) of the Pack Rat on the middle U12 soccer field at the GCAA Complex. The GCAA Complex address is 8994 Cleveland Rd, Clayton, NC 27520. Turn them in before the drawing date indicated on the Raffle Ticket. The Pack-Rat Storage Shed will be accessible on Saturday game days.
First, to reiterate, all of the GCAA (Greater Cleveland Athletic Association) Sports programs are run by volunteers who put in countless hours of work without monetary compensation. We are, however, not only a growing area and sports organization, but one that needs to address existing and some over due needs for practice and game field maintenance and procurement.
In short, because of rising costs in running the GCAA Soccer program, we have implemented a mandatory Raffle Fundraiser. Instead of simply raising registration prices by $20 per player, we have instead provided a means by which players/parents can recoup the costs by choosing to sell raffle tickets to family, friends, and neighbors.
Each registered player is required to purchase at least 10 raffle tickets. To make their sale easier Pelican's SnoBalls, for example, is offering a BOGO coupon to accompany each ticket sale. We also have great coupon deals for Pizza Inn and Dairy Queen (see sample ticket above.) This is in addition to the $1,000.00 1st place drawing, $500.00 2nd place winner, and $250.00 for 3rd place.

How to use the Raffle Ticket Coupons:
The larger coupon portion of the ticket you do NOT need to keep. Go ahead and give the coupon portion of the raffle ticket to one of the businesses listed in order to redeem one of the coupon items listed. You MUST choose which of the coupon offers to use per raffle ticket. One coupon offer may be used per ticket. It is not intended that you keep the coupon portion of the raffle ticket nor that you use it for more than one transaction.
You can take orders from family, friends, and relatives as early as you like. You do not need to have any raffle tickets in hand to do so. Our current plans include raffle tickets distribution on our first two Saturday practices at C3, August 19th and 26th. We'll be making our rounds to you so can come get raffle tickets you've already purchased. At that time you can obtain additional tickets either keep or resell and turn in your filled out raffle ticket stubs. Additional times and dates and places for distribution, sales, and collection will be forthcoming. If you have any questions or special requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need more tickets to sell. Email email@example.com and say so. Daniel Rentz will get your email and will be happy to give you a phone number to text or call and an address where you can go pick up more tickets, etc... He'll be happy to accommodate you. He'll also text parents throughout the season letting them know when he'll be out and available during game and practice days. You can either pay for additional tickets up front or later.
Parents can purchase more raffle tickets in the following increments:
10 raffle tickets $10.00
20 raffle tickets $15.00
30 raffle tickets $20.00
50 raffle tickets $25.00*

70 raffle tickets $35.00*
80 raffle tickets $40.00*
90 raffle tickets $45.00*
100 raffle tickets $50.00*
*Any amount of raffle tickets you purchase at or over $25, you will receive twice the value of the ticket. Instead of $1.00 each, they will essentially be purchased by you at half the cost or $0.50. You pay for the raffle tickets upon receipt of them. You can keep and use them yourselves or you can sell them for $1.00 each. If you choose to sell them, you can make a return of 50% on your investment.
