The 2019 Football Sweepstakes involves the last 10 weeks of games played by the NFL this season – games that will be played between Oct 27 and Dec 29. Donation is $20.00 per ticket.
At least $2,500 in prizes will be awarded each week or at least $25,000 over the contest period.
The 23 winners are determined by ticket holders with the four teams that score the most – or the least – number of points in that given week of games.
The scores from the previous week’s games are used for teams that are not scheduled to play on any given week. A winners’ list will be posted on www.fundcrazr.com and www.kofcohio.org – Password is going to be your ticket number. Charity Ticket Chairman Bogan.
It’s Friday, and you’re having some friends over for a movie night, but you’re underwhelmed and tired of uninspired sequels. You’re looking for something that will not only entertain but lift your minds and hearts to something higher. The Knights of Columbus has you covered.
Knights fulfill their desire to spend meaningful time with their family, to serve their community and Church, and to grow in their faith.
Joining the Knights of Columbus provides these men and their families with opportunities to participate in community, council and church activities that accomplish goals to strengthen our families.
Whether you can help with our fundraising activities, volunteer your time, or recruit another Catholic gentleman, your talents are greatly needed by the Knights of Columbus.
From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.
2017 was a record-setting year for Knights of Columbus charitable work with an unprecedented $185.6 million in donations and 75.6 million hours of service provided worldwide. The monetary value of K of C’s service hours is valued at $1.9 billion based on an estimate by Independent Sector, a network for nonprofit foundations that values a 2017 volunteer hour at $24.69.The K of C’s 2017 survey of charitable giving also showed that monetary donations increased $8 million from 2016 (+4.5 percent) and service hours grew by 527,550 (+0.7 percent). Year-over-year annual growth in both categories has been consistent over the past two decades.
Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. Our own unique charities include the Christian Refugee Relief Fund, Disaster Relief, Ultrasound Initiative, and Coats for Kids. We also partner with international charities including Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity.
Through our Building the Domestic Church initiative, Knights and their families have greater opportunities to participate in a variety of activities that deepen their faith, promote the New Evangelization, and strengthen our parishes.
"We are answering Pope Francis’ call to go to the peripheries,” Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said. “We can reach half way around the globe to help those in need and we can reach to our neighbor next door. And we do that every day. That makes us witnesses to the faith."
If you’d like to be a part of an international organization of nearly 2 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need, we'd like to meet you and invite you to join us.
Council meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at St William Parish, 5431 Mahoning Avenue, Warren, Ohio
