CMU Soccer to give away $1,600

CMU Men’s Soccer Coach Josh Pittman exchanges a raffle ticket for five dollars with Kris Moort on Wednesday. Moort will have the chance to win $500 on April 27 with the purchase of her raffle ticket.

Do you want a chance for a great return on your investment? Well, at—wait, wait, hold on. This isn’t a complicated deal. Simply spending five dollars to support Colorado Mesa University’s athletes could win you up to $500.

The CMU men and women’s soccer programs are teaming up with Maverick Booster, Inc. to host a raffle to raise money for more travel opportunities, and will be giving away a total of $1,600. Raffle tickets cost five dollars, and one ticket will give a contestant the chance to win up to $500.

Raffle tickets are currently for sale, with the drawing taking place April 27 at 7:30 p.m. between the men and women’s soccer alumni games at Walker Field. To purchase raffle tickets call 970-712-9504, or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

“This is our second year of the fundraiser and the raffle was a great success for our programs last year, and we’re excited to give our supporters a chance to win some cash prizes,” said Josh Pittman, head coach of the men’s team.

Even if supporters don’t win the drawings, they still have the chance to enjoy the atmosphere of the games and see graduates of the soccer programs.

“The atmosphere is extremely fun and it’s great to see all the players and to reminisce about the years they were here playing,” said Pittman. “The main goal is to have fun and contribute to our program operations.”

There will be 17 raffle tickets drawn, giving each contestant 17 chances to win money. There will be six drawings for $25, five drawings for $50, three drawings for $100, two drawings for $200 and one drawing for the grand prize of $500.

“The fundraiser is really a great deal because it benefits our programs and also gives our supporters a chance to get something in return,” said Sarah Schnetzler, goalie for the women’s team. “It’s been hard selling tickets but really depending on the number of tickets a supporter buys $1,600 can be won.”

Contestants do not have to be present at the drawing to win, but must be at least 18 years of age to enter. Contestants may purchase multiple tickets and checks may be written to The Maverick Club.
