Seattle United Raffle Has Kicked Off!

Dear SU Families:

The club is rolling out its annual Raffle fundraiser this week.  All Raffle net proceeds support our financial aid fund. The club saw significant increases in financial aid applications this year over past years, and while the club awarded an unprecedented amount of aid ($183,000) this year, unfortunately the demand continues to exceed our resources.  One way to bridge that funding gap is through our club-wide fundraising efforts.

The success of last year’s raffle provided program fee assistance to many boys and girls with select/premier soccer skills but whose families lacked financial resources to play at this level.  Due to your amazing support, Seattle United has never turned down financial aid to any qualified applicant.

Your participation and support of this year’s Raffle will make it an even greater success than last year.  Here’s how it works:

-The Raffle runs from November 12th to January 9th, 2017
-Anyone eighteen or older may purchase tickets
-Your Team Manager will assign a parent to act as Team Raffle Manager
-Your Coach will drop off Raffle packets this week
-Each player will be issued ten tickets; tickets sell for $10 apiece
-Additional tickets will be available from your team’s Raffle Manager

ALL UNSOLD TICKETS must be returned to your Team Raffle Coordinator; State law prohibits the loss and/or destruction of licensed raffle tickets.

2016 Raffle Prizes:

-One Grand Prize: 2017 Volkswagen Golf TSI
-One Runner-up Prize: $1000 Gift Card

We are very excited about this year’s grand prize, as it is a sweet car that gets terrific gas mileage while also looking very sporty! We can’t wait to see you driving it!
