On Saturday, March 21, 2015, we will be holding a “SMAC-A-THON” fundraiser at Northside Pool. The purpose is to raise funds to resurface and re-tile the pool.
GOAL: To raise between $15,000 and $20,000. It is an aggressive goal but if every family raises at least $100, we will be more than half-way to our minimum goal.
EVENT SCHEDULE: The event will start at 8:30 a.m. and go to 12 Noon. Each SMAC swim group will be scheduled to swim together for no more than 2 hours each with the goal lap count as follows:
Bronze Team – 50 Laps Silver Team – 75 Laps
Gold Team – 150 Laps Junior/Senior Teams – 200 Laps
The swim group with the highest percentage of participation will be rewarded with a pizza party. The swim group earning the most money will receive a sweet treat party.
Festivities will include:
-Team Pictures -Lap Swims
- Fun with coaches -Raffle Drawings
RAFFLES AND INCENTIVES
We will hold raffle drawings throughout the event. Prizes will be made up of SMAC tshirts and items donated by local businesses. Swimmers will receive 1 raffle ticket for participating. They may earn other raffle tickets by:
Ø*Sending donation request letters and/or emails – for every 5 sent, the swimmer will receive an additional raffle ticket
ØEarning donations – every $50 earned and turned on or by the day of the event = 1 raffle ticket
