Cash Raffle & 2011 Ford Focus Winners

July 8th, 2011

The Mercy Athletic Association (MAA) and Mercy Football program sponsored successful fundraisers at the end of the 2010-2011 school year.  The MAA drew the winner of its 2011 Car Raffle on May 21st before a large crowd at the 2011 Mercy Football Kick-off held at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School. 

The second annual football kick-off event included a catered dinner and live auction, and was hosted by Mercy Football coaches and parents. At the end of the dinner, the winners of the exciting $5,000 reverse raffle were drawn. Bill Schmitz, Jon Shupenus, and Doug Sebastian were the lucky ticketholders. Funds raised from the dinner will help support the OLM football program.

In addition, the MAA sold over 1,500 car raffle tickets for the 2011 Ford Focus which was obtained from Gene Evans Ford in Union City, Georgia. The Car Raffle winner was Vincent David from Palmetto, Georgia (pictured at top with his wife and Bill Schmitz, Mercy Athletic Director). The David family has a daughter who attends Our Lady of Victory Catholic School in Tyrone. All funds raised by the Car Raffle will be used to support Mercy Athletics.

The MAA and Mercy Football look forward to the car raffle and kick-off dinner/auction to become long-standing  traditions that support the outstanding athletic program at OLM. 

Thank you to everyone who supported these events and our student-athletes through their time, talent and treasure this year.
