Individual Fundraising Accounts
Because we offer so many different events per year, we have set up individual fundraising accounts to help supplement some of the event costs. We do a variety of fundraisers throughout the year to benefit St. Colette Youth Ministry as a whole, but individuals also have the chance at some of these fundraisers to earn money that goes directly into their individual account. When announcing a fundraiser, we will give out information about when individuals can earn money for their accounts, and when the fundraiser will benefit St. Colette Youth Ministry as a whole. The funds in individual accounts can be used to pay for any Youth Ministry event, excluding dances. When a teen graduates, the funds in their account are put back into the general youth ministry account to benefit the whole group. If someone is planning on traveling with us to World Youth Day, we will keep their account open after they graduate so that they can continue to fundraise for this event.
Our annual Evergreen sale runs from October to December every year. Individuals have the chance to take orders for fresh evergreen wreaths, door swags, & roping. We also take orders for evergreens from parishioners after all masses during two weekends in October, to benefit the Youth Ministry program as a whole. Parishioners and the teen sellers are able to pick up their products on the Friday after Thanksgiving between 12 and 3pm in the church garage. Parishioner orders must be pre-paid.
Thank you for a great 2018 sale! We will have info on next year’s sale available in early October 2019.
Charity Poker Nights
We currently participate in the Charity Poker Room at the Players Golf & Event Centers in Livonia (8 Mile and Plymouth Road locations.) These fundraisers will be benefiting specific events, such as World Youth Day and Appalachia. All volunteers must be over 18, so we encourage parents to get involved to help their teen work towards different events. We have 3 more events scheduled for 2019:
Sept. 11-14 – Players North at 8 Mile & Farmington – 7pm-2am each day. We know many of you won’t be able to help with the very late shift but will take any help you can give us 🙂
Oct. 6-9 – Players South at Plymouth & Levan – Sunday and Wednesday, 7pm-2am, Monday and Tuesday 11am-6:30pm.
Nov. 10-13 – Players South at Plymouth & Levan – Sunday and Wednesday, 7pm-2am, Monday and Tuesday 11am-6:30pm.
For more information, or to sign up for any of these events, please contact our office at 734-464-1677.
