2017 Annual Ohio Super Cash Bonanza Charity Campaign

posted Feb 23, 2017, 12:46 PM by Michael Kahny   [ updated Feb 25, 2017, 5:25 PM ]

The Ohio K of C Charity Campaign will kick off February 18th and will conclude with the drawings at the Annual Ohio K of C meeting. Just take a look at the cash prizes. There are more than ever .... 25 prizes totaling $108,000. Top prize is $49,680 payable $414.00 per month for 10 years. The commission/rebates available for Council #1362 are the most they’ve ever been. Our council's basic share of the $5.00 ticket is $2.40, but we can receive an additional $0.50 to $0.80 per ticket by meeting or exceeding our council's first and final turn-in quotas. The Charity Campaign is one of our council's key fund raisers which provides funding for so many of our charities programs. It also provides funding for so many of our Ohio K of C charities programs including the high school scholarship program. Five Tickets are only $25.00, and you could win almost $50,000!

    Last year we realized nearly $2,000.00 profit for our council. If everyone does their part, we will improve that figure substantially, which is our goal. If each member purchases or sells 5 tickets we will exceed that goal. To meet this quota we need to sell and turn in 2050 tickets for the entire campaign which ends May 13, 2017. We need to sell and turn in at least 1025 tickets for our first turn in which is Saturday, April 15th. If we do not meet this quota we are eliminated from making any bonus. We really need your help to get your tickets sold and turned in by April 15th. Our final turn-in will be on Thursday, May 4th or May 8th meeting night. If we make our final quota of 2050 tickets for the entire campaign we will receive an additional $0.50 to $0.70 per ticket.

    To encourage an early turn-in your council will be hosting a special “TURN-IN PARTY” THURSDAY, APRIL 6th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. This party is open for members, wives or other guests. Sandwiches & fries will be provided if you turn in or have turned in money and stubs for at least 5 Charities tickets on or by that time. If a member turns in money for 7 tickets, his spouse also eats free. Sandwiches & Fries for your spouse, guests or others not reaching the quota of 5 or 7 tickets by that date will be $4.00 per person.

INDIVIDUAL INCENTIVES FOR THIS YEAR ARE AS FOLLOWS:.

     Sell 100 tickets or more during the campaign and you'll receive $0.50 for each ticket you sell plus dues paid for 1 year. Sell 50-99 tickets and you'll receive $0.25 for each ticket you sell plus your dues for 1 year.

     You can turn in your money and tickets at any membership meeting or any Thursday evening at the K of C hall before 9:00 PM., or Mail them to: Charity Tickets, PO Box 182, Delphos, OH 45833, OR, tickets and money can also be turned in at Pittsenbarger Supply on Canal St during normal business hours.
