Kids Chance of New Jersey Needs Your Help In Fundraising Raffle For Students

By on May 6, 2021 in Other with 0 Comments

Many of you know that Capehart Scatchard is a founding member of Kids Chance of New Jersey (KCNJ). Three of our professionals are on the Board of Directors:  Lora Northen, Carol Wright and John Geaney.  The pandemic has taken a toll on Kids Chance chapters in every state, and every chapter is hurting.   KCNJ has decided to conduct a raffle to be drawn on July 23, 2021 to benefit the students of KCNJ.

Many of you are familiar with Kids Chance, and many have participated in our annual events. For those who are not familiar, Kids Chance is dedicated to providing college scholarship funds for students whose parents are seriously injured or killed in a workers’ compensation accident.  Until 2020, KCNJ had been able to provide up to $10,000 per year for each student for all four years of college if they need the funding.  Last year KCNJ supported 26 students.  Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, our annual bowling event and our annual Gala had to be cancelled.  That meant that for the first time in a decade, KCNJ was not able to provide support at its customary levels.

Unfortunately, the pandemic is still having a serious effect on fundraising this year, with the cancellation of our bowling event and the postponement of our Gala until September. The KCNJ Board of Directors is determined to come up with alternative ways to raise scholarship funds for our many wonderful students and their families.  We need your help to make this work.  Each raffle ticket costs $10.  Literally 100% of the proceeds go to the students we sponsor.  The drawing is at noon on 7-23-2021.

First prize is a $1,500 Amazon Gift Card; Second prize is a Vizio 43 inch TV and Home Theater valued at $500;  Third prize is a Shark Robot Vacuum valued at $475 ; and Fourth prize is a Ring Door Bell valued at $200.

If you are so inclined to purchase one or more raffle tickets, we thank you for your generosity.  Those who have been reading my blogs know that I have never made an appeal in all the years I have been blogging. But KCNJ is a special organization, and our mission must go forward.

Raffle tickets may be purchased two ways: please either venmo at the following: @AshleyPalkewick or mail a check to the attention of Carol Wright, Capehart Scatchard, 8000 Midlantic Drive, Suite 300S, Mount Laurel, NJ  08054.  Carol will mail the tickets directly to you at the address you request upon receipt of payment. 

On behalf of Kids Chance of New Jersey, we thank you for your generosity, interest and support!
