Big Money Raffle
Shepherd of the Hills Parish sponsors an annual Big Money Raffle. This raffle is the most important third-source fundraiser for the parish. Raffle tickets sell for $50/ticket or 3 tickets/$100. The grand prize of the raffle is $10,000 and there are a variety of other monetary prizes as well. Sale of raffle tickets begins in June with winning tickets being drawn in August during the Fish Fry. Parishioners are asked to purchase raffle tickets and to also sell raffle tickets to family members, friends, and co-workers. The participation of all members of the parish in the Big Money Raffle helps make the raffle an annual success.

Proceeds benefit a family or individual in need. Parishioners are encouraged to enjoy the delicious brunch and/or to volunteer to help.

Mission Sunday Weekend
An annual fundraiser for the youth of Shepherd of the Hills that travel on a Mission Trip over the Summer. Mission Sunday, commonly in January, can come in many creative forms: Mass Appeals, second collections, or (more recently) a Foot Print Campaign. Teens cut boot prints out with dollar amounts on them. These boot prints are hung in the back of Church for 1-2 weekends where parishioners can take a boot print of a select amount they are willing to donate. Donations are returned (with their boot print) via mail, collections, or in person to the parish office. All donors to the Mission Journey are invited to the Spaghetti Thank You Dinner at the end of June.
