Concession Stand Update
The concession stand did well at the volleyball game. Tyrone Reid gave a special Thank You to Crystal Lizana as the MVP. There are only two boxes of popcorn left and Sweet Life does not have anymore. When purchased from Sweet Life it costs $39.00 per box, there are 36 (8oz) in a box. We sell approximately 12-13 packages per game. Will research online to see if we can purchase some place else. The cost for a bottle of water went up to $1.50 this year. It was agreed to purchase the water from Costco, reduce the price back to $1.00 a bottle and not order water from Pepsi.
Winter Raffle Update
Bob Jerard volunteered to be the lead and Tyrone Reid will assist him. The subcommittee discussed changing the size of the card so that the tear off portion would be bigger however this would double the printing price. Will research online to see if we can get better prices. This is time sensitive and needs to move quickly. Motion: Authorize up to $300.00 for printing the raffle card. Second, All in Favor. The first day of the raffle the prize will be $100.00, second day $50.00, the rest of the Monday’s will be $50.00 gift cards instead of cash and Tuesdays will be $25.00 cash. There will be a specific point person to work with the coaches. Students that sell 10 calendars will receive one free entry into the daily prize drawing for them. We will keep the current incentive if a student sells 20 calendars they receive $50 and the overall top seller received $50.00 We will keep the current coach incentive if the average of nine calendars are sold per student the coach will receive $100.00. There are approximately 15 people who have not picked up their prizes from the Fall raffle. Bob Jerard will research and take care of contacting them.
