The Chicken Cookout and Raffle is one of the largest fundraisers for St. Nicholas parish and provides a day of fellowship and fun for everyone!!
The Chicken Cookout and Raffle is held every year on Father’s Day in June.
All Parish families are strongly encouraged to get involved and volunteer their time. There are many committees available for one to participate. We also need volunteers to help with Children’s games, the craft and baked goods store, the cake walk, helping in the kitchen, dining room, with set-up, raffle ticket sales, and clean-up of the grounds following the event.
In early April the raffle committee contacts area businesses to ask for cash donations. Parish families are encouraged to donate a cash prize. Raffle tickets are then printed and packaged to give to all Parish families. Each family is given tickets to buy for themselves or to sell to co-workers, family, or friends. Additional tickets can also be picked up from the cookout raffle committee.
The drawing is held on the day of the Chicken Cookout. Prizes can be picked up after the drawing on the same day or at the parish office in the days following.
