LAKEWOOD, NJ - The BlueClaws have upgraded their fundraising program, adding a new option that will enable additional local organizations to raise money through fun nights at FirstEnergy Park. 

Last year, over 150 organizations partnered with the BlueClaws to raise over $120,000 and with this new program, detailed below, that number should grow significantly.

Groups that have particiapted in the BlueClaws Fundraising Program in years past include youth sports teams and leagues, churches, Rotarys, Elks clubs, Kiwanis groups, scout troops, schools, non-profit organizations, and many others. 

Fundraiser FlexBooks: For the first time this year, the BlueClaws will offer fundraising tickets in a smaller FlexBook, each with five undated vouchers valid at any 2015 BlueClaws home game. Each organization can order a minimum of 25 booklets for $35 each and re-sell them for $55 each, earning $20 per booklet and a minimum of $500. 

"Several groups have asked us for a more adaptable fundraising option and we think our new FlexBooks fit the bill," said Jim McNamara, BlueClaws Vice President of Ticket Sales & Service. "It's a lot easier than selling candy or washing cars and it's a quick and easy way to raise money for your organization."

The BlueClaws original fundraising program remains intact, where organizations can reserve a minimum of 250 tickets for $7 each and re-sell them for $11, raising a minimum of $1,000. This standard fundraising program also enables partners to raise additional funds through two exclusive benefits: 

  • Fundraising partners can volunteer in a BlueClaws concession stand, earning $750 for 20 volunteers. Concession stand nights are subject to availibility. 
  • Fundraising partners receive 50-cents back to their organization for each ticket that gets used at their BlueClaws game. 
  • These two benefits are only available to partners that utilize the BlueClaws standard fundraising program and is not open to those that partner through fundraiser FlexBooks.
