              Cash Raffle

CEL is having Cash Raffle to raise money to support ALL extra-curricular activities and clubs! The winning tickets will be drawn on December 4th at the CEL Spirit Night between the 7th & 8th grade boys’ basketball game. There will be (1) $500 winner and (2) $250 winners.  Winners do not need to be present to win. Tickets are $5 for 1 ticket or $10 for 3 tickets.  Our goal is to sell 2,000 tickets.

You may not have students that are in any extra-curricular activities at this time, whether it is because your child is not old enough or because your child has other interests outside of school, but we are asking you to consider selling or purchasing the raffle tickets. The money raised is going to help ALL student activities and clubs at CEL and will allow CEL to allocate more funds to the education of all students so EVERYONE benefits!

  • We are asking each student to sell 8 tickets.
  • Tickets are $5 for 1 ticket or $10 for 3 tickets.
  • Turn in tickets and money (CASH ONLY) to your child’s homeroom teacher or to the office by November 30. Do not forget to have the person purchasing the ticket fill in their name and phone number. We are not accepting checks…cash only. Winners of the raffle must be 18 years old.
  • Additional tickets are available. Please contact the office or send a note to school.
  • Drawing is December 4th at the CEL Spirit Night between the 7th & 8th grade game!

Please show your school spirit and sell cash raffle tickets! If you choose not to sell them, simply return the tickets to school By November 30. Thank you for your support!
