Family Night Raffle
By: Kip Toner ~ 10/21/2009

Last Friday, Kip was the auctioneer for a parish and school family night and had a wonderful time raising funds to support the parish and school’s mission at this fun and family friendly event. This family night featured a creative raffle that was huge hit with the many children who participated; low priced raffle tickets were sold that the children could then deposit in any of the collection boxes, each in front of a large variety of raffle items that would appeal to a young audience, allowing them to pick which drawings to enter. When the time came for the raffle drawing, the youngsters sat in a circle on the auction stage and had a blast cheering for their friends whenever they won one of the coveted items.  This raffle brought in some extra revenue at the event, but also was so much fun for the whole family that it would be an ideal extra revenue item for any family night auction!
