CMFSC 2023 Fall Club Raffle
CMFSC 2023 RAFFLE WINNER: Elisa Winata, Ticket Number: 334185
What is the 2023 CMFSC Raffle?
For the 2023 – 2024 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 24,500 tickets will be produced and sold at a price point of $10.00 per ticket. Our Club’s primary sponsor, Metro Motors has sponsored a 2023 Ford Maverick XLT 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 2022 raffle generated approximately $131,000 in net revenue that was applied directly to CMFSC programs and expenses. The expectation and goal for the 2023 raffle is to generate $245,000 for the CMFSC’s 2023 – 2024 programs.
What is the Price of the Raffle Tickets?
Tickets for the 2023 raffle are priced at $10.00 per ticket. (Note that each $50 book has only 5 tickets this year to sell). Based on the volume of positive feedback we received in 2022, and given the high dollar value of the prize the Club awarded in 2022 and the prize we will award this season, tickets should remain an easy sell. In addition, the raffle tickets represent extremely good value with great odds of winning.
What is the Raffle Prize?
CMFSC sponsors and suppliers have continued to support the Club in a big way. As such, the major prize for this season’s raffle will include the following:
- Raffle Prize - 2023 Ford Maverick XL. Due to the increased value of the vehicle again this year, we will only be having one prize.
