    For the past three years the winner has taken home over $5000, and last year, it was over $6,750!  Tickets are only $2 each! 

    Remember, the family that sells the most 50/50 tickets will earn a free month of tuition at the single-child elementary school rate!

    As of November 13, familes had sold 2456 tickets with 38% of families in ECP - Grade 8 participating!  Including our Dine Out sales and last weekend's Mass sales, the pot stands at just over $6,800

    • 1st place: Maiuri
    • 2nd place: Eramo
    • 3rd place: Murphy (Sean)

    Please consider selling your tickets this week!  We are now selling raffles at church next week and we want to advertise a large pot as that will really increase our sales!  If each of the remaining families sells their 15 tickets, we would raise another $3,120!
