2023 Lucky Lotto Calendars

2023 Lucky Lotto Calendars are good for the entire calendar year. Each day has a prize associated with it. Prize values range from $30-$400. Prizes are awarded by the Calendar # (000-999) and date. Winning numbers are based on that day's PA Pick 3 Evening Number. Calendars can hit multiple times a year!  If you win, a check will be sent from the Treasurer directly to you.

Each Calendar costs $30. Each calendar sold will earn the player a $10 credit on their player account, while the remaining $20 goes towards prize payouts.

Due to the popularity of this fundraiser, the club cannot honor any specific calendar number requests.

You pay for the calendars after you sell them.  Payment and stubs are due by December 1, 2022.  Please submit only one check made payable to SCIR for the total due.  Place check and completed calendar stubs in a sealed envelope with player name and team in the SCIR Fundraising mailbox at Alpha. PLEASE make sure stub info is legible to allow for easy entry into the tracking spreadsheet and that all information requested is filled out.

You are responsible for the calendars requested.  Unsold calendars CANNOT be returned.  Any calendars taken and stubs/payment not returned will be invoiced to your player account on or about December 15, 2022 (for example, you take 10 calendars worth $300 total and only return 6 calendar stubs with payment your player account will be invoiced for the remaining owed $120).
