Club Fundraisers
Each year, the club holds the following fundraising events. (Most were cancelled during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020).
  1.     Nevada Ticket Sales. This event is on-going, and is the largest fundraiser operated by the club, bringing in several thousand dollars each year. We sell instant scratch tickets in the lobby of the Giant Tiger store on Coleman at Neely. We were able to restart this fundraiser in March 2022.
  2.     "Just Because" sale of roses. In October, we sell boxes of a dozen long-stem roses, delivering them to the customer's door. They are normally sold for $25 a box, and we usually manage to sell about 300 boxes.
  3.     Women's Fair. We organize a Fair for women in November, usually held in the Carleton Place Arena. Income comes from table sponsorships, a silent auction and food services. (We were able to hold this project in 2021, with a reduced number of tables and without the food service.)
  4.     50-50 draw. From about May to November we sell 50-50 tickets at $5 each. The draw is normally held at the Women's Fair in early November.
  5.     Mushroom Compost Sale. In late April we operate a sale of mushroom compost. We buy a large quantity of bulk compost from a local supplier, and arrange for teams from the Carleton Place Soccer Club to load it into bags holding about 40 litres. It is sold on site, and can be delivered by club members to customer's residences. About half the profit is donated to the soccer club, and the rest is available for other charities. We are hoping to restart this project in 2022.
