Carlos Gilbert Cash Raffle Instructions

The Cash Raffle Fundraiser Has Begun!

It's Cash Raffle Time! Our annual cash raffle is back and ready for you to sell tickets. The main website is


Lucky winners of $500, $250, and $100 will be chosen during our amazing Halloween Carnival on October 28th!


Why do we raise this money every year?


The PTK actively raises money in order to fund programs and activities including:

  • Grade level programs like dance, theater, fish-raising, and cooking

  • Reimbursements for classroom supplies

  • Club and team stipends

  • Tutoring

  • Field trips and activities

  • and so much more!


How Students Win Too


Now for the really fun part: we want to make sure that our students have plenty of chances to earn prizes too!


The first way is to meet your minimum selling goal of $75 worth of raffle entries! Every student who meets this goal will earn a mystery prize!


The next is the Monster Dash. Each classroom becomes a monster during the month of October and they race each other to win a party! The top 2 selling classes in Kindergarten-3rd and 4th-6th will get a party of their choosing (with teacher approval of course).


The monster dash is back up in the cafeteria so keep an eye on that during lunch so you can see how your class is doing!


We have one more way to win a prize - the top 3 selling students in the whole school will earn cash prizes themselves! The top selling student will receive $100, the second place student will receive $75, and the third top selling student will receive $50.

Hi (Name),


I'm participating in a raffle to raise money for Carlos Gilbert Elementary, and I would love your help! Every ticket counts! Please help our Blackhawks continue to soar!


The PTK funds an enrichment program, such as theater, dance, or cooking, for each grade. The PTK also reimburses every teacher each semester for classroom materials, gives every club and team a yearly stipend, pays teachers to tutor students in need of extra assistance, facilitates school events, and supports other programs and activities as needed.


If you purchase tickets you are helping to directly support and enrich the educational, creative, and social experience of students, teachers, and families in our school community.


We appreciate you and wish you luck!


Please visit my fundraising page to learn more about our cause and how to support our efforts:
