CMFSC 2021 RAFFLE INFORMATION
What is the 2021 CMFSC Raffle?
For the 2021 – 2022 soccer season, Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club, in conjunction with its sponsors, its teams and players will be once again undertaking a fundraising raffle in which 48,000 tickets will be produced and sold at a price point of $5.00 per ticket. Our Club’s primary sponsor, Metro Motors has sponsored a 2021 Ford Ecosport, which will be the raffle prize. We are grateful for the support of Metro Motors for its ongoing support of our Club.
Why is CMFSC Holding a Raffle?
CMFSC is committed to developing and offering more programs and playing opportunities to support the continued development of its membership and players at all ages and levels of play. As operating costs across all programs continue to escalate, the Club continues to explore methods of generating incremental funds, rather than passing these cost increases directly onto its membership. The fall 2019 raffle generated approximately $120,000 in net revenue that was applied directly to CMFSC programs and expenses. The expectation and goal for the 2021 raffle is to generate in excess of $240,000 for the CMFSC’s 2021 – 2022programs.
What is the Price of the Raffle Tickets?
Tickets for the 2021 raffle remain priced at $5.00 per ticket. (Note that each $50 book has 10 tickets) Based on the volume of positive feedback we received in 2019, and given the high dollar value of the prizes the Club awarded in 2019 (and the prize we will award this season), tickets should remain a very easy sell. In addition, the raffle tickets represent extremely good value with great odds of winning.
What is the Raffle Prize?
CFMSC sponsors and suppliers have continued to support the Club in a big way. As such, the major prizefor this season’s raffle will include the following:
- Raffle Prize - 2021 Ford Ecosport. Due to the increased value of the vehicle this year, we will only be having one prize.
