Super Cash Raffle
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Welcome to the 2019-20 academic year at St. Augustine High School. Everyone at the school is excited about the upcoming year and is committed to the continued growth, education, and development of your son.
As we announced during the Spring registration period, the St. Augustine High School Board of Directors voted to not increase the base tuition for the 2019-20 school year. Instead, the school has instituted a mandatory fundraising support initiative targeted at ensuring our ability to offer the best educational experience for all students.
The following information provides specific details for the mandatory fundraiser activity:
Raffle Prizes: A total of $10,000 in cash.
There are four chances to win:
- 1st prize - $5,000
- 2nd prize - $2,500
- 3rd prize - $1,500
- 4th prize - $1,000
Raffle Start Date: Monday, September 23, 2019
Raffle Ticket Return Date: Monday, October 21, 2019
Date of Raffle Drawing: Saturday, November 9, 2019, during halftime of the St. Augustine vs. Holy Cross football game.
Ticket Distribution: Raffle tickets will only be distributed to a parent or guardian. Raffle tickets can be picked up from the school business office every day starting on Monday, September 23rd and ending on Monday, September 30, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Raffle Ticket Price: $25 per ticket.
Raffle Ticket Issuance: Each parent/guardian will initially be issued 10 raffle tickets. Once a family accepts the raffle tickets, they are responsible for selling the tickets or returning any unsold tickets to the school no later than Monday, October 21. Any unsold tickets that are not returned to the school by October 21st must be paid for by the parent/guardian. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Families with more than one student enrolled at St. Augustine High School are required to support the mandatory fundraisers according to the following chart:

Payment Method: Tickets sold by families can be in the form of cash, checks (payable to St. Augustine High School), or money orders. Credit card payments can only be accepted at the school.
Raffle Ticket Collection: All paid or unsold raffle tickets must be turned in to the finance office by the parent or guardian (not by the student). A receipt will be issued at the time the payments and ticket stubs are returned. The finance office will accept raffle ticket payments during normal business hours beginning on September 20, 2019.

- Please remember that every family is responsible for raising $250 in the current school year in support of the mandatory fundraising effort. Families with multiple students are responsible for raising the amount listed in the chart above.
- Families may choose to pay this fundraising support fee directly to the finance office and not participate in any mandatory fundraising events.
Any family that does not meet the mandatory fundraising requirement must pay the entire $250 fee prior to the end of the school year.
