Once again, the Colorado State Council is sponsoring the annual CRAZR ticket fundraiser.  This is the State Council’s only fundraiser, excluding their semi-annual assessments made to all councils in Colorado.
 
The State Council is requesting that each council sell a minimum of 60 tickets for $10.00 per ticket.  If that level is reached, State will credit our semiannual assessments $0.50 per assessable member, or a total of $1.00 per member per year.  We currently have about 80 assessable members.  Our council also retains $2.00 for every $10.00 ticket sold.
 
Last year, our council sold 77 tickets (78 the year before), all of which were purchased by members.  Most members elected to have any winnings go directly to our council.  As it turned out, we had winning tickets that netted our council $87.30 ($273.33 for prior year), plus we retained 20% of the $770 from tickets sold, or $154.00.  After minor expenses, we added a total of $231.30 ($423.78 for prior year) to our operating funds and our State assessments were less than they otherwise would have been by about $100.00.
 
Beginning in 2020, some members expressed concern about certain NFL policies those members found unpatriotic and disrespectful. The main concern was that ticket sales could be viewed as creating an association between the Knights and the NFL that might be interpreted by some as an endorsement of those offensive policies. Another view expressed was that the NFL receives no part of the proceeds from this fundraiser.  NFL scores are merely used as a method to generate random numbers that determine winning tickets for each of the last 10 weeks of the regular NFL season.  Selling tickets is not an endorsement of any NFL policies and use of NFL scores for this purpose is a very weak promotion for the NFL, if any.
 
We believe every view deserves respect.  So, below are your options if you would like to participate this year.
  1. Call or email Bob Scott (303-522-7185, rlscott15@msn.com) with the number of tickets you would like to buy.
  2. Bob will fill out the tickets, mail them in, and retain the stubs, unless you specifically tell him to mail the stubs to you.
  3. You may enter anyone you choose, but you will need to provide Bob their name, address, email and phone number.  Bob has that information for all members, so if you want to enter your own name, just tell him that.
  4. If you want the entry in the name of Council 13301, tell Bob that and he will not need any further information.
  5. You may pay by cash, check or credit card, but do not mail cash to Bob.  Mail checks to Bob at 9132 E. Harvard Avenue, Denver, CO 80231-7647.
  6. If you want to use a credit or debit card, CALL Bob on the number above with your credit card information rather than including it in an email (to avoid any security risks) and he will process your payment using Square.com.  or go to our web-site, KofC13301.org and pay using Paypal or your debit or credit card.  Choose the option for “Donate”.  Bob will know it’s for tickets.
  7. If you want to sell tickets to non-members, let Bob know and he will arrange to get you a supply for that purpose.
Tickets may be sold/purchased through October 06, 2021, but everything needs to be mailed in to State on October 07. 
 
Thank you
Bob Scott
Dear Parish Festival volunteers,
 
Thank you for making the time to volunteer at our parish festival last weekend! It was a lot of fun and a great success! I loved seeing the kids run around with smiles on their faces, and the adults visiting with one another.
 
At Risen Christ, we are deliberately trying to build up a parish culture of Prayer, Community, and Discipleship. Your involvement in this event directly contributed to our efforts of building up stronger Community rooted in the joy of the Risen Lord. Your service at the festival was a great blessing to me and to the entire parish! 
 
Many blessings to you and your loved ones!
 
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Scott
PS - The mischievous side of me wants to get some volunteers next year to be the parish festival GREETERS - like the guys in this goofy video! (ignore the first 25 seconds of advertisement)
