ucc launches raffle

One of my projects this semester is the first-in-a-very-long-time UCC Raffle. The raffle, ongoing now with tickets available online, via phone (512-476-7351 x10 during business hours) or in person, will wrap up on December 6, 2007 with the drawing of the winner at the UCC Christmas Party.
We know the UCC used to have car raffles in the past—in fact, the priest-in-charge and a Catholic Students Association officer were arrested because a very-seldom-enforced technicality after an individual who wasn’t friendly to the Catholic faith called the local district attorney’s office. Fast forward 60 years, we think this is the first time since then for a raffle of this size.
The winner will have their choice of either a brand new 2008 Volkswagen New Beetle or a $15,000 scholarship that can be used for any post-high school educational program—including student loans or college savings. If you aren’t looking to use the scholarship, you can designate any family member or friend to receive the scholarship.
Really, that’s pretty awesome.
I’ll tell more later of the benefits to students who wish to help sell tickets, but talk about a low-cost way to possibly win big.
