Why does the Kiwanis Club of Sidney take tickets at the High School sporting events?
The only fundraising a club can do for their administrative expenses has to be done by its own members. Dues can offset all expenses or we can find projects that only our members do. We do ticket taking for the High School to raise money to pay rent, send members to conventions, office expenses etc.
Ticket taking is a very easy activity. The first people there pick up the money, tickets, programs etc. from the office. At the events where there is more than one gate the office supplies us with two of everything. Per the request of the school we pull the tickets and keep them to turn back into the office. When the last shift is done someone from the school picks up the money.
