Important notes on turning in tickets:

  • Please do not un-staple the books or separate the tickets from each book.
  • When making a sale, tear off the ticket (the part with the truck on it) from the stub (the part with the name and contact info written in) and give the ticket to the person who bought it. This is their receipt for the ticket purchased. The stub section goes with the money on Turn In days.
  • Please do not turn in coins. Please make change in the Business Office if needed.
  • Please do not turn in tickets that you do not have money for and do not turn in money without tickets. The homeroom deputies will reject these tickets and return them to you.
  • Make sure your tickets are filled out completely and legibly with names, contact information and your name as the seller. Any ticket not filled out will be returned to you with the money and not counted as a sale.
  • Please do not turn in partially sold books. Keep selling the book until it is completely sold before turning it in.
  • Please order more quotas in the Business Office (students only).

Raffle Ticket Information

Each student is required to sell his quota of Round Up raffle tickets which is worth $300. Many students seek to move much more than the minimum knowing that many of their classmates would be unable to participate in the rich and valued St. Thomas experience without financial aid.

One hundred percent of the monies generated through the Round Up student raffle sales contribute to St. Thomas tuition assistance, a STH practice which dates to 1927.
