Consider partnering-up with ProTeam to supply your organization a Corvette for your next charitable fundraiser!
For over 25 years, I have been involved in supplying Corvettes and marketing to help charitable groups obtain their goals and have been at least partially responsible in raising close to 25 million dollars for these groups as a whole.
Here is a recent testimonial which speaks volumes of me and my company:
"... thank you for some helpful advice towards our annual collector car drawing. Our list has grown to over 105,000 names and whereas our average check sent in to purchase tickets is about $35.00, the average credit card purchase is closer to $80.00. We started our fund raiser with Ronald McDonald House in 1993 with just $1,600.00. Our first car was a 1954 Ford Customline which cost $3,500.00. Our annual sales for the first year were $11,100.00. Today, thanks in part to your consultation, our tickets sales have generated $1,300,000.00 to $1,800,000.00 in each of the past three years." - C. Hansen, Friends of the House (Ronald McDonald Charities)
"We sold the final ticket about 2 hours prior to the drawing….the very first time we have sold all 10,000 tickets!! So, it was a great success! Thank you so much for your help with the blogs. It seems that we had some great cross over with the electronic newsletters and email blasts. Our winner is from Ohio. This was probably the best car we have raffled….we hate to part with it. Thanks again, Dave."
"I can tell you that we have developed a level of trust and confidence with you guys and the feelings are mutual. By the way, you might like to know that since we started this 24 years ago, St. Bernard has netted probably 1.75 Million dollars and we really didn't catch fire until we started working with you guys. We have a little school (that is the oldest in our diocese) and it would have went away years ago without this funding. It is safe to say that today it is reducing the cost of sending a child to St. Bernard School by over $1000. a year. So we appreciate what you guys do for us. Thanks", - G.S., St. Bernard Chuch, Rockport, IN
