Raising $250 should be easy, right? By signing up for DonorDrive, fundraising should be easier than ever before!

Like previous years, there is a mandatory payment of $25 that will allow you into the actual Mini-THON event and provide you with a t-shirt. But for those who want to go above and beyond, we are offering something new!

If you raise $250 on your own, not only will this secure your spot in the VIP room, with seating, Chipotle and more, but it will also enter you into many different raffles! These raffles will include Pirates tickets, Prom tickets and a free massage.

Regardless of how much you want to fundraise, all students attending Mini-THON MUST sign up and make a small payment of $25 through DonorDrive. Students must turn in this money before or on February 28th to secure their t-shirt order. Any payments made after this date will not get a t-shirt, but this cost will cover all of their food the night of.

We want this year to be more successful than ever, so come out, fundraise and always be #FTK!
