What Is the Progressive Raffle?

The Bishop McNamara Progressive Raffle gives ticket purchasers multiple chances to win one of 35 prizes totaling $120,000. Just one $100 ticket enters Bishop McNamara Progressive Raffle ticket buyers into two drawings throughout the year. The Friday Night Lights Drawing on October 1, 2021 and the Annual Dinner Auction on November 5, 2021. All winning tickets go back in the mix for future drawings – so the sooner you buy, the more chances you have to win! 

With each ticket purchased, you enrich the experience for Bishop McNamara students. Your support helps prepare them for their next steps, whether that be kindergarten, junior high, high school, college, or beyond.


Purchase A Ticket

Tickets go on sale on August 1, 2021. You can purchase online, from one of the BMCS School Sites in the Main Office or from a BMCS family. Be sure to designate a family you wish to support.
