Budget and Expenses

It was decided that we needed to do some more fundraising in order to bring in some money to cover immediate expenses while we are waiting for future fundraisers.

We will be doing a Pampered Chef Raffle starting May 9th. Raffle tickets will be sold for $4.00. One winner will be drawn for every 50 tickets sold. The winner will receive $100.00 in Pampered Chef products of their choice. This fundraiser is being done solely to fund new jerseys.
