Raffle

What is the Raffle?

The Raffle is the school-wide fundraiser to support general operations at St. Pius X High School. It is driven by the student-led Raffle Promotions Committee. All SPX students are expected to sell a minimum of $320 in raffle tickets each year. In return they earn school-wide holidays and additional incentives based on sales.

The 2017 Raffle Rodeo kicks off with a pep rally on Wednesday, January 25. The Raffle drawing is held on Friday, March 24.

Why is the Raffle important?

Because tuition does not cover the cost of educating a St. Pius X student, the Raffle helps close the $2,200 gap per student. Some specifics include:

  • Keeping tuition low for all SPX families
  • Providing financial aid to qualified students and families
  • Fostering the best faculty through competitive salaries
  • Maintaining our 25+ acres of grounds and buildings
  • Supporting and upgrading our technology

How do I purchase Raffle tickets and how much do they cost?

  • Raffle tickets can be purchased from any SPX student, faculty or staff member.
  • $20 for a book of 3 tickets or $10 per ticket (Books include coupon for a FREE Dr. Gleem's Car Wash - a $12.99 value)
  • Cash or checks ONLY! No credit cards or crowd funding accepted.
