Saint Mary Church is excited to announce that we are launching a Mardi Gras Lucky Derby Fundraiser. It will have the same theme as our Mardi Gras Night at the Races but will have a new look, a new game and be just as fun! The Lucky Derby is a Calendar which gives each participant a chance to win cash or merchandise every day and at the same time help Saint Mary Parish!
How does this work? Simply purchase a chance to win by choosing a three digit calendar number between 000 and 999. You can choose your favorite number(s) (1st come, 1st served) or a number will be assigned to you.
Each Lucky Derby number is $40.00 and is good for the entire year beginning on Mardi Gras, February 16, 2021 through December 31, 2021. That means there are 319 chances to win and close to $20,000 in cash & prizes!
How are the winners chosen? Winners are based on the Pennsylvania Evening Pick 3 Daily Number at 7:00pm. If the number that a participant holds matches (straight only), they win the prize listed on the calendar for that day. Minimum prize is $45 & increases on Holidays, Holy Days, & other Bonus Days, including monthly chances to win high-end electronic items & gift cards!
Number holders will receive in February our professionally designed calendar that lists each day’s prize, along with ads from our sponsors and underwriters plus personalized messages.
We hope that our entire Parish Community will support our event in the following ways:
First, we are asking each parish family to buy or sell at least two Lucky Derby numbers. Ask family, friends or co-workers, as these Lucky Derby Numbers also make great gifts. Additional numbers are available for purchase at the Parish Office Center and also on our website.
Second, you can secure or become a Calendar sponsor or underwriter. You can advertise your business in our calendar or become a Sponsor in Memory or in Honor of a loved one. Recognize a student, teacher or team, and name your day in honor of an achievement or wish someone a Happy Birthday! The possibilities are endless!
Third, help us reach our goal of selling 1,000 Lucky Derby numbers! Give a Lucky Derby number as gift to family and friends. Gift Certificates are also available in the Parish Office.
