In an effort to provide new facilities and utilities for students, Helias Catholic High School has partnered with Kwik Kar for the “Rooted in Faith, Building on Excellence” Capital Campaign.
Owners of Kwik Kar locations in Jefferson City have offered Helias an opportunity to reach $250,000 over the span of the campaign. To be able to do this, students and teachers must sell vouchers for either a $13 supreme car wash or $13 off an oil change. For each voucher purchased Kwik Kar will return half of what was sold, $6.50 back to the school.
Using this process, Helias will be able to make up to $50,000 or more per year for five years. To meet this goal, all Helias students will each need to sell 11 vouchers, although it is encouraged to sell more as to achieve or potentially exceed this goal. It’s suggested that students attempt to sell these vouchers to friends and family, however students are always able to buy their own tickets.
“We are very blessed and excited to be partnering with Kwik Kar for this unique fundraising opportunity,” said President Rev. Stephen Jones. “We hope [students] will embrace this opportunity to support Helias.”
Through this, students will be able to win several prizes as top sellers. These range from first place to third place prizes with some added gifts. For example, first place sellers will receive premiere seating for any Helias athletic event or next year’s spring play, as well as graduation seating. By contrast, second place sellers will win a lunch with four friends provided by Chick-fil-A and third place sellers receive a $30 gift card to the Sader Shop.
It’s also open to faculty to sell as many vouchers as they please. Teachers will be allowed to partake in any prizes if they choose to do so, with their first prize being that their class will be taught by Principal Kenya Fuemmeler.
Beyond the basic prize packages, students and faculty are both able to enter a raffle for a 60” Samsung Smart HDTV donated by The Entertainer, a local home-audio and entertainment business. With a minimum of 25 vouchers sold, sellers will be given one ticket to be entered into the raffle for the HDTV. Additional tickets will be placed in the raffle for every five extra vouchers sold.
With the raffle, Helias has also promised an “All School Excellence Award.” This means that if 7,700 tickets are sold by March 17, 2016, there will be no uniform requirements for finals week. To go along with that, Fr. Jones will also have the Helias shield shaved and colored into his head.
“It is a great time to be a Crusader, and I know that I can count on all of you to assist us in making this fundraising opportunity a great success!” Jones said.
