FUND RAISING EVENTS
As you can imagine, our CC GOP Chapter needs money to accomplish our goals. Fundraising events are held annually. Monies raised from these campaigns allow the Party to maintain our headquarters office space and to assist local, state and federal candidates during general elections.
The “Building Fund Campaign”. Funds raised during this campaign are used to pay monthly expenses associated with operating the GOP Heaquarters, e.g. rent, electricity, telephone, wi-fi, office supplies, etc. Headquarters is staffed solely by volunteers who donate their time and energy to be available for fellow Carteret County conservatives. This campaign accepts personal donations, as well as donations from local businesses who wish to support our local Republican Party. The campaign kicks off at the beginning of each year and wraps up in May. Of course, donations to the Building Fund are always accepted and welcomed.
The “Executive Committee Fund Campaign”. Funds raised are used o pay for expenses such as: donations to Republican candidates (local, state and federal), County Convention expenses, printing, advertisements, Web site maintenance, etc. This fundraiser is traditionally a Revers Raffle. Three hundred tickets are printed and sold for $100 each, for a chance to win $5000.00 – last person standing wins! Each ticket allows entry for two people. This is a fun event usually held on a Sunday afternoon sometime in September or October at the Holiday Trav-L-Park Resort ( http://www.htpresort.com/ ) in Emerald Isle, North Carolina. This beautiful campground resort has a large covered gathering place that is perfect for our event.Parking is offsite, but our capable volunteers provide golf cart transportation to the event. In the unlikely event that tickets still available, you can purchase them onsite. Tickets may be purchased from any member of the CCGOP Executive Committee. The 2018 Reverse Raffle will be Sunday, October 28, at the Holiday Trav-L-Park. Ticket sales begin the first week of July and continue until sold out.
