Prize Incentives in the Pre-Sale Campaign
The Pre-Sale Campaign is underway and we are one step closer of reaching our goal of $535,000!

During the campaign, there will be multiple opportunities for you as committeemen to earn prizes. To encourage continuous sales throughout the campaign we are offering special incentives during the Blitz Schedule. The committeeman who has the largest dollar amount for that category will win that week’s prize. This week’s Blitz Schedule is focusing on Continuing Education and the Luck of the Draw packages. The volunteer who can sell the most will win one ticket with insurance to the Luck of the Draw. The deadline for this is July 7th. Every Luck of the Draw ticket will entitle you and one guest to a steak dinner, drinks, live entertainment, opportunity to win prizes and an evening of fun!
Another opportunity for volunteesr to win prizes is participating in the Volunteer Recruitment Campaign, which will conclude on July 31st. For each new volunteer you recruit you will move up a level on the prize scale. You can win anything from a pair of Ray Ban Sunglasses to a Yeti Tundra 65 Cooler. We will also conduct Campaign Rallies which will include dinner, drinks, updates on the Pre-Sale Campaign, and fun door prizes. Our next Rally will be on July 25th at Mike Lewis’ house, where you can swim, play pool volleyball, eat and drink!
