The Raffle Coordinator is responsible for securing raffle prizes for the end of season Pizza Party. Also the sale of raffle tickets to families through the Team Parents.

RAFFLE/PIZZA PARTY GUIDELINES

 
 
As soon as Jamboree date has been confirmed, work with Volunteer Coordinator to establish date and location of Raffle/Pizza Party.  It is usually during the final week of school, after the Jamboree, intersquad games and a U15 game at ARHS.  When date has been determined, secure location.  In past it has been the Neary Pavillion or the Rt 135 Pavillion.  Whichever location requires permission of Recreation Department or Principal and completion of a School Use form.  Agreement is that we use cafeteria only in case of rain and restroom use is monitored.  Since we have not paid for custodial help, trash is disposed of in dumpster after party and area is left clear of debris.
 
RAFFLE PRIZES:  In the past, many raffle prizes have been supplied by the Treasurer, along with 10-12 clothing/gear items ordered by Clothing Fundraiser.  About 35 player-oriented prizes in total.
 
 
RAFFLE
 
Raffle takes place toward the end of the NSYLA Season.  Raffle tickets are sold beginning the third week of May and raffle winners are announced at the end of season Pizza Party held in June.
NSYLA Raffle Coordinator makes raffle Ziploc packets labeled with team name which consist of: 

  • Instruction sheet
  • Prize list
  • Team Roster for keeping track of sales
  • Fifty, 2-part raffle tickets
  • Pens
  • Twenty NSYLA decals
  • Collection envelopes (for raffle stub and money) with Team designation written on it (i.e. U9-Gold)
 
NSYLA Raffle Coordinator sends out email to team parents to inform them of raffle/pizza party and to pick up Raffle packets.

To All Northborough-Southborough Youth Lacrosse Players:
 
Please mark your calendars for the end-of-season lacrosse Pizza Party & Raffle which will be held on Tuesday evening, June 21st from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at Rt. 135 field in Northborough!
 
After the Jamboree we always celebrate the end of another great season with a Pizza party.

This year the pizza party will be held at the Rt. 135 Field Pavilion in Northborough from 6PM until 7:30.

There will be Pizza, Cake and drinks for all the boys. There is no charge for this event. Please just show up and have a good time!

We also hold a very fun Raffle with great prizes!

Please look for your team parent who will have raffle tickets available starting this weekend. They will also be available at the Jamboree and will be available until 6:45 PM at the party.
Tickets cost $10 each or 3 for $25.

Over $2,000 worth of prizes will be awarded!!!


 
Team parent or team raffle volunteer sells tickets at games and practices the last two weeks of the season.  The goal is for each family to purchase at least one $10-ticket.  Keep track of who has been contacted on roster.  They keep the part with the number, and the program keeps the part they have written their name and phone number on in case they win and are not present.
 
Team Parent or Team raffle volunteer returns proceeds and ticket stubs to NSYLA Raffle Coordinator prior to the Pizza Party.  NSYLA Raffle Coordinator announces winners at Pizza Party (least expensive prizes first).
 
NSYLA Raffle Coordinator also purchases appreciation gift certificates for Cannons Coordinator, Field Coordinator, Referee Coordinator, Registrar, Treasurer and President.
