Fundraising Drive

Welcome Back to 176 Boeing of Canada Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron! The 2017 to 2018 year is full of learning, community service, exciting activities and adventure.

The Cadets at 176 RCACS are very fortunate to be supported by a strong sponsor, Boeing of Canada but the Cadet program must still call upon the Parents Committee to raise the necessary funds to insure that these programs continue to be offered to our young people and to maintain a positive base for future Cadets. It is estimated the cost per Cadet, per anum, is approximately $70 so we have to call upon all Parents to help, to fundraise, to make these types of programs be possible for your Cadets.

The 176 Parents Committee will be holding a number of fund raising events throughout the year, such as a Wine Raffle and The Annual Rib Eye Dinner to help raise these much needed funds and we are asking for your fundraising support by volunteering, donating prizes or monetary donations. We must note that any company or individual donating prizes is entitled to receive a Tax Deductible Receipt for the fair market value of the donation.

For this year the following fundraisers will be as follows:
The Wine Raffle 3.0
This was extremely popular over the past two years and we are planning another raffle during November to December. To help keep the costs down we ask that each Cadet family donates a bottle of wine for the raffle (commercially purchased wine only, no homemade sorry). We kindly ask that every Cadet family can sell at least one raffle book of 10 tickets.

The Annual Rib Eye Dinner
The dinner is currently scheduled for April 2018 at the Norwood Legion. Tickets will be for sale for $25 each and silent auction donations will be kindly requested nearer the time.

The League Raffle
There will be League raffle tickets made available during the year, where we again kindly ask that every Cadet family can sell at least one or two raffle books each. All money fundraised from the League raffle is given back to each squadron.

Dag Day Events
This year we will be increasing the successful Tag Day fundraising events where, to make this a successful fundraising drive, we desperately need additional screened parent volunteers. For just 3 hours of your time during one morning or afternoon within the year, you, the Parents Committee and the cadets could help us raise between $3,000 - $6,000 per Tag Day event!  

As a volunteer, we kindly ask that you pursue and complete the screening process where a Police Records Check (Criminal Record and Vulnerable Sector Check) is required. The good news is that the Squadron shall reimburse you after your first volunteer event. Furthermore, if you live outside of Winnipeg, the application fee can be waivered by the RCMP. We humbly appreciate any help and volunteerism that you can provide to our Cadet squadron as this could help us achieve so much more for the your Cadet.

Thank you.
Chris Mitchell - Chairperson Squadron Sponsoring Committee.
Kim Arnal - President of the Parents Committee.
