The ever-popular World Cup fundraiser for Cortes kids soccer is back!
For many years we have been raising money to help fund soccer opportunities for kids on Cortes. We just spent the last of our funds recently on some new equipment. So this is a perfect time to re-fill the fund ... and to have some fun doing it.
Here are the details:
FUNDRAISER - A World Cup pool where you pick which teams you think will progress through to the various rounds. A quarter of all the funds collected will go our Cortes Kids Soccer fund. The remainder will go to the winner and runner-up.
ENTRIES - Attached to this article is a PDF of the pool. $20 per entry. As many entries as you want. 50% goes to winner and 25% to runner up. The remaining 25% goes to the kids soccer fund. Your entry plus the money has to get to either Barry Saxifrage (in vancouver) or Colin Robertson (on cortes) - or be clearly postmarked to one of us - before the kickoff of the first game in Brazil on June 12th. Paper copies of the pool to fill out should be available from either Colin or Barry.
DEADLINE TO ENTER -- before June 12th
