Canton Educational Foundation
We are kicking off a new fund-raiser, and are excited to invite you to join in!
Our Spring 2017 Fundraiser is a 50/50 Raffle, with ticket sales set at $20 per ticket or 6 tickets for $100. The maximum number of tickets to be offered is limited to 1000 tickets so these tickets are expected to go quickly! The sale of all 1000 tickets will yield a projected total up to $20,000.
50% of ticket sales will go to the Foundation.
Each year, we award educational grants to CISD teachers and award scholarships to Canton ISD seniors through an essay contest. Over the last five years, the Foundation has awarded almost $120,000 in support of local educational excellence!
50% of ticket sales will go to the prize drawing.
Prizes will be awarded in the form of Texas Bank and Trust VISA Gift Cards.
Prize amounts will be calculated as follows:
First Prize 25% of ticket sales (at 1000 tickets sold, prize is up to $5000)
Second Prize 15% of ticket sales (at 1000 tickets sold, prize is up to $3000)
Third Prize 10% of ticket sales (at 1000 tickets sold, prize is up to $2000)
The winning tickets for the 50/50 Raffle will be drawn at the Celebration of Stars Gala on April 8, 2017. While of course, we invite you to be present at the event to celebrate the outstanding educators and students at Canton ISD, please note that you do not have to be present to win.
You may purchase tickets for the Celebration of the Stars Gala and the 50/50 Raffle at all four Canton ISD campuses and at the Canton ISD Administration office.
