Subject: Score Big for Pilgrim! Important Info

Greetings Pilgrim Community!

It is that time of year again when we are gearing up for our annual party and auction fundraiser. You may or may not already know, but this past fall we announced a change for this year’s fundraising. In an effort to reduce the normal workload of our annual auction AND to provide a free celebration for our awesome community, we announced a raffle/donation drive. In support of all the ministry happening through Pilgrim, we invite you to participate in:

The Score Big Drive for 25k!

The Drive is our simple and straightforward campaign to raise funds for Pilgrim to benefit various needs throughout the school and church. The Drive will culminate in a raffle drawing during the live auction portion at our Score Big With Pilgrim Party at WhirlyBall Chicago on April 8, 2017. It will be an exciting night as we have five great prizes up for grabs:
Grand Prize: $2000.00

*Two $500 Amazon Gift Cards
 *Two Chicago Staycation Packages (valued at $300)

We picked these prizes so it would be something anyone would enjoy, so that a larger audience would be interested in our raffle. Friends, family, co-workers, local baristas, you name them… I bet most of them love cash, Amazon, and something fun to do.

If you are not into raffles or really don’t want to sell one more thing, you are more than welcome to utilize some tax benefits by donating to The Drive for 25k. In fact, several families have already taken advantage of this option and we are so grateful! If you choose to donate, please put Drive for 25k in the memo line so we can stay organized. All raffle tickets or donations must be turned into the office or to Tarah Dickerson and Erin Telford by April 7th. 
We are optimistic that with everyone working together we can reach this goal! We have asked each school family to sell ten raffle tickets at a price of $25.00 each. We would love for our church community to contribute to this drive as well in any amount they feel comfortable. Tickets will be available purchase after the 10:30 am service beginning March 5th until April 1st. You may also purchase tickets by contacting Tarah Dickerson at If you would like to sell tickets to others, again just contact Tarah to arrange a ticket exchange.

We appreciate your time and consideration. We can’t wait to see you on April 8th at WhirlyBall Chicago to celebrate our overachievement on this Drive by exceeding our $25,000.00 goal! If you have any questions, please contact Tarah Dickerson at 
Thanks for all that you do.
