Women's Soccer Begins Win-Win-Win Fundraiser

Banner Elk, NC--The Lees-McRae Women's Soccer Program is kicking off a Win-Win-Win Fundraiser in which your contributions will result in hours of service to the community, funds for the women's program and a chance for you to win a prize yourself.

In an effort to fundraise $4500 for the women's soccer program by February 1, 2008 the players and coaches are selling $10 raffle tickets to buy one hour of community service by the players and allow you the chance to win various prizes and gift certificates. The drawing, to be held on February 1, will award such prizes as an Ipod shuffle, a travel CD player, a three month Netflix subscription and gift certificates from national franchises that can be used anywhere across the country such as Best Buy, Lowe's Hardware, Old Navy, Target, Wal-mart, Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, JC Penny, Subway, Panera, etc.

With the purchase of a raffle ticket, the Lees-McRae College women's soccer players will commit to completing an hour of community service. Examples of volunteer service include helping with Habitat for Humanity, organizing care packages to a group of soldiers stationed in Iraq, mission trips through various churches, working with homeschooled children in PE clinics, work in the Wildlife-Rehabilitation Clinic on LMC's campus, tutoring sessions for other students on campus, and set-up/take-down for athletic events such as the National Cycling competition and for the NCAA Tournament hosted on LMC's campus.

Your participation in this program will result in a "win" for the community as hours of service are poured into it, a "win" for the women's soccer program as funds are raised allow them to continue to pursue excellence on and off the field, and possibly a "win" in the form of a prize or gift certificate for you!

If you would prefer not to participate in the raffle but would like to support LMC Women's Soccer, donations from a business or personal account (tax-deductible donation) can be written for any amount. We will accept cash or checks made out to Lees-McRae College Women's Soccer. If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser, you can contact Head Coach Renee Lopez at 828-898-8771 or at lopezr@lmc.edu.

Thank you again for your support of the Lady Bobcats.
