Annual Raffle Fundraiser

The Knights of Council #3744 participate in the annual sale of raffle tickets (typically in the March-April time period) to raise funds for Rancho San Antonio "Boys Home of the West". 

Each member Knight is asked to purchase tickets and teams of Knights sell tickets to parishioners after Masses at our three local parishes.

We greatly appreciate your support of this effort and count on your enthusiastic purchase of raffle tickets to make this life-changing program available to troubled young men.

2018 Raffle Fundraiser is Now Underway!

Council 3744 has kicked off our annual fundraising efforts for Rancho San Antonio, the Knights of Columbus supported "Boys Home of the West".

Soon all Brother Knights will receive a book of 10 tickets (requested donation of $2 per ticket, $20 for the book). Please purchase as many tickets as you can and return the donation and the ticket stubs by April 25. 

Each parish will also sponsor a Rancho ticket sales weekend.  We need as many Brother Knights as possible to man the tables and sell tickets at their home parishes...our local parishioners are big supporters of this cause and weekend sales are key to our Council's event success!

Parish Weekend Sales Schedule (before and after each weekend Mass)

   Visitation.........March 17-18
   St Jerome.........April 14-15
   St Anastasia.....April 21-22

Please email Rancho Chairman Mike Engler at mengler729@sbcglobal.net, if you need more tickets or did not receive tickets.

2017 Raffle Fundraiser Results (From Mike Engler PGK, Rancho San Antonio Chairman)

I am happy to report that 2017 Rancho San Antonio ticket sales exceeded $6,000 thanks to the big response of Brother Knights, Ladies of Columbus, widows of Knights and friends at our three served parishes. 

A special word of thanks to the Brothers and their friends and families who individually purchased and sold tickets in amounts of $100 to $300 and the generous parishioners of our three local churches who purchased $3,900 of tickets.  You all have my sincere appreciation for your support of this worthy cause!

About Rancho San Antonio

Rancho San Antonio Boys Home (website & video) is a Knights of Columbus supported organization that provides a caring, therapeutic environment where young men can develop the skills, values, and personal responsibility needed to successfully rejoin their families and communities.

Rancho San Antonio was founded by the Catholic Big Brothers in 1933 and, in the 80+ years since, thousands of young men have turned to Rancho San Antonio for help and guidance. 

Since the 1950's, the Knights of Columbus have provided most of the fundraising for Rancho San Antonio.  Within the first three years, the Knights raised enough money to build the chapel, indoor swimming pool and the first four dormitories on the grounds.

The Rancho San Antonio campus sits on 19 acres and, with the continued support of the Knights of Columbus, the campus has grown to include 11 living units, a dining hall, gymnasium, infirmary, recreation complex, football and baseball field, group home, career resource center and administration building.  Rancho San Antonio currently provides service to 106 boys and their families.
