Here are some details about the raffle.

  1. Each CYS Wind Ensemble musician is encouraged to sell at least 20 tickets (two bundles) at $10 each ticket. Half the proceeds from the two bundles (20 tickets) go to CYS. The process:
    • Each student's dues account will automatically be billed $100 for half the proceeds due to CYS.
      • Note: Balances owed on raffle tickets will reflect on the student's billing statements and must be paid in full by each statement deadline.
    • Once the musician collects $200 for selling all 20 raffle tickets, the musician may do either of the following:
      • Spend it however he/she pleases
      • Pay CYS dues
      • Donate to his/her favorite charity or charities (like CYS)
      • Put it into a savings account
  2. Students are encouraged to sell as many tickets as they can. A bundle consists of 10 tickets. Additional bundles can be obtained at rehearsal by contacting our Benefit Raffle Coordinator ahead of time. The student's account will automatically be billed for half the proceeds due to CYS.
  3. Final raffle ticket money is due by the last rehearsal on May 17, 2020.
  4. A collection box for raffle ticket stubs is available at all CYS Orchestra concerts and at the first rehearsal of each month, unless otherwise stated. Please refer to the weekly newsletter for the latest updates.
  5. IMPORTANT: Names on stubs for drawings have to be over 18 years old. Registered winners must be over 18 years old, but the free Companion ticket may be any age. Prize is transferable.
  6. Fundraising volunteer hours are granted at end of season (4 raffles=1 hour)
  7. The top salesperson in the CYS Associate Orchestra will receive a $100 Amazon gift card!
