Did you know?
Omaha Lightning is a 100% volunteer run! Although families pay a fee per child to participate, these fees do not cover the operational cost on a per child basis. Each athlete’s fees cover only about 65% of our yearly operational cost. Each year in order to off-set the deficit we have relied on a variety of different fund raisers.
What are we doing different this year?
This year a raffle drawing will be held during a night filled with fun and give-aways in order to help raise funds for the program.
How much is each raffle ticket?
Each raffle ticket will be sold for $20.00 with 100% of the proceeds going towards the Lightning program.
How do I get tickets in order to sell them?
Lightning players and families will need to purchase tickets in advance of selling them. We recommend either pre-selling them before purchasing them or make sure you do not purchase more than you are confident that you can sell.
Is there a limit to how many you can sell?
There is no individual person/family limit. The only limitation is we have a total of 250 raffles to sell.
There will be a ‘Top Seller Award’ for the family with the most raffle tickets sold!
1st Place will receive a $200 Visa Gift Card
2nd Place will receive a $100 Visa Gift Card
On average each Lightning player needs to sell 7 tickets in order to sell all 250 available raffles.
