The Portland Steelheads will be hosting a party to draw the raffle tickets on Friday, September 23rd at the River Pig Saloon. The drawing will start at 6:00pm. We will also be watching the AFL Preliminary Final during the drawing. So buy some tickets and come down to watch some of the best footy on offer, and see if you can go home $2000 richer.
It is that time of year where we as a club reach out to the Greater Steelhead and AFL community to raise funds for our upcoming trip to the USAFL National Tournament. This year our need to raise funds is even more important as we are traveling across country to defend our Men’s Division III and Women’s Division II National Titles in October at this year’s tournament in Sarasota, Florida.
Players traveling to Sarasota are required to cover their airfare, food and tournament fees – which ends up being upwards of $750 a player. Our goal this year, as it was last year, is to cover the cost of accommodations, rental cars, and game day provisions (water, fruit and tape). Also, given the travel distance we would like to provide some airfare assistance to those who need it.
Our major fundraising effort this year is a backwards raffle where the last ticket drawn will win $2,000 USD cash. As there are only 1000 tickets being sold, the odds at winning are better than the Oregon Lottery. There will also be prizes awarded for the 2nd through 5th last tickets drawn, along with spot prizes drawn throughout the evening. The specific prizes will be updated on this page as the raffle approaches.
You may purchase raffle tickets from any Steelhead player or online above. You’ll want to hurry as they’re going to sell out quick. After purchasing your tickets you will receive your ticket numbers by email. You can come on down to the party or simply check back here as the drawing progresses to see if you are taking home the grand prize of $2000.
If you don’t want to participate in the raffle but would like to support the Steelheads, you can donate to our organization by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We are a registered 501(c)3 organization so your donations will be tax deductible.
