Fundraisers of the SERV Foundation
- September 06, 2012
The annual Volley For SERV Tennis Tournament, which began in 1990, draws players from New Jersey and Pennsylvania for a full day of tennis competitions in A, B and Pro Divisions at a nearby country club. The contests are followed by an evening reception, which includes the presentation of the SERVice Award and the Lou Natale Players Award, prizes to contestants, an exquisite dinner, a silent auction with fabulous prizes donated by area businesses, live entertainment, and the drawing of the Super Cash 50/50 Raffle.
The Super 50/50 Cash Raffle is a popular fundraiser among supporters (January to June). Tickets are $50 each or 3 for $100. First-prize winner takes home 40% of the amount raised and second-prize winner takes 10% of amount raised. Tickets are drawn during the annual Volley For SERV Tennis Tournament in June. Proceeds benefit all programs of The SERV Foundation.
The Scholarship Fund Cash Raffle takes place in the fall, with ticket sales from September to November. Net proceeds from ticket sales ($10) go exclusively toward providing scholarships to SERV consumers who wish to further their education, but who have exhausted all other sources of financial aid. Three raffle winners receive 25, 15 and 10% of the total amount raised. SERV's employees and board members take an active part in selling the tickets to family, friends and co-workers. SERV donors also receive notice of the raffle and are asked to support the fundraiser.
