Opportunity Drawing
Entry Deadline January 15, 2023

Internal Event
Opportunity Drawing

The members of the Betsuin’s Board of Trustees are excited to announce a new type of fundraiser, which will not only benefit the church but will provide participants an opportunity to win monetary prizes.

As you know, the church’s operating budget relies solely on general donations from our members and the community, the annual membership dues, and fundraisers.  Throughout the year, we receive generous donations from our Sangha members and friends. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were unable to hold our largest fundraiser of the year, our annual bazaar, for the last three years.

The Opportunity Drawing will allow our Sangha members and friends an opportunity to participate in this fun monthly drawing while also donating to the church. 

The way it works:
From now through January 15, 2023, donations of $100 that are submitted together with an Opportunity Drawing Entry Form will provide the donor an entry into a monthly drawing that will take place in the church courtyard after service on the last Sunday of January, February, March, April, and May in 2023.

Participants will have the opportunity to win multiple prizes, as their entry will be included in each month’s drawing. Only the first 300 entries into the drawing will be accepted.

The total payout of monetary prizes will be 10% of the total donations submitted to this drawing: a maximum of $3,000 awarded. For the first 4 months, 1/6 of the total prize payout will be awarded to one lucky winner. On the fifth month, the prize will be doubled (1/3 of the total prize payout). Please see the flyer for an example of the monthly prize payout.

 All entries must be postmarked or received online by the Betsuin Office by January 15, 2023. Please write “Opportunity Drawing” on your envelope if entering with a form sent to the office.


You may enter using the attached Opportunity Entry Form, either mailed to the church or hand-delivered.


Enter online with your credit card using the entry form provided by the attached QR code or THIS LINK.

If you wish to enter the drawing by donating online by credit card, you MUST place your donation on the SPECIAL ONLINE STORE, set up specifically for the Opportunity Drawing. Your credit card purchase from this special online store will replace the hard copy Entry Form. A $5.00 processing/convenience fee will be charged for all entries submitted by credit card.
