Fundraisers from the 2016- 2017 Season
Autumn Harvest Flower Sale
We kicked off the pre-season early, with a Fall Flower Sale offering mums in a large variety of colors, ornamental cabbage and kale, bales of hay, and cornstalks.
Offered primarily to the team members at the start of the pre-season in the fall. Provides the team members with the opportunity to sell raffle tickets for the SEARS Raffle or submit them for their own personal chances at winning the raffle. Additionally, the fundraising packet includes Pizza Cards for a local Italian Restaurant, which provides a large free pizza with the purchase of a pizza, for up to 20 free pizza pies.
A Nespresso Machine and Fire pit with Smores gift basket were the fall prizes bundled together to create an awesome prize for the winner of the $5 raffle ticket. Raffle tickets are provided in the Fundraising Packet, along with being sold at the various venues in the community and Miller Place UFSD events. The drawing for this raffle was held in mid-December of the pre-build season.
For the first time this year, Team 514 hosted a Friendly’s FUNdraising event. Team members invited family and community members to enjoy a meal of which a portion of sales during the evening was donated to Team 514. Thanks so everyone’s efforts it was an awesome event.
Two raffles sure to meet the interests of both the men and women of the community. First prize is a 60 gallon Marineland fish tank with canopy and black oak stand. Second prize is a family four pack of Splash Splash water park season passes. Raffle tickets for both raffles cost $5, and are available at the Miller Place spring concerts and Stop & Shop on select days. The drawing for this raffle were held at the last spring concert in May.
