Charity Mania General Information & Goals

Updated Tuesday May 30, 2017 by Grayslake Colts Football, Cheer & Dance.


Charity Mania is the primary Colts "organization wide" fundraiser each year, and we ask that all families participate. In order to keep our registration fees low and our investment in the program high, we need your help. While other teams typically ask families to purchase raffle tickets up-front and then sell them in order to re-coup the investment, Colts simply issues 10 tickets per family and asks for your help in selling them. Proceeds from Charity Mania tickets sold in recent years has allowed us to purchase the new tunnel, provide scholarships for college-bound former Colts athletes, purchase new cheer and dance uniforms and warm up outfits, cheer mats, new football helmets, football practice and game pants, AED units, new refrigerators for the concession area, and many other program improvements.

What you need to do:

  1. Ask Co-workers, friends and family to support the Colts by purchasing a “Charity Studio Digital Entertainment Package” for $20 and receive a FREE Charity Mania Football Sweepstakes ticket. (Anyone in the world can play).
  2. Give the ticket to the purchaser and have them legibly complete the name & address section of the stub and return to you along with their money. They keep the ticket – you collect the stub.
  3. Turn in all money and stubs by September 6th to be eligible for week #1 drawings. Tickets will be accepted after September 6th, but will not be retroactive to previously played games.
  4. Return all un-sold tickets to the Colts so others can try to sell them. Please feel free to pick-up additional tickets beyond your issued 10 if you think you can sell more. You may request additional tickets from our concession coordinator at
  5. Tickets are activated and eligible to win after the completed stub & payment is returned to the Colts and recorded.

Sold ticket stubs and money will be collected on the following dates/days:
