CiTY REC Referral Program
When a new CiTY family registers for REC and puts your name in the referral box, we put a credit in your CiTY account. CiTY credits can be used towards any future CiTY program (including travel fees and future REC registrations) and never expire. The CiTY family will continue to grow with your help!
You could win $10,000!

CiTY's 2021 Raffle drawing for $10,000 CASH is Monday, April 19, 2021. As CiTY's biggest fundraiser of the year, proceeds from the raffle benefit the CiTY Scholarship Fund and Special Needs Program. Raffle tickets are $25 each.

Share this link with family, friends, neighbors, and anyone else who wants to support a good cause while getting a chance to win $10,000. Most CiTY Travel players are already entered into the raffle with four tickets, but increase your chances of winning by buying more!

Raffle tickets will be sold until 10:00 am on April 19, 2021. Like last year, the ticket sales and drawing will be handled in a safe, socially-distanced way, with CiTY staff writing names onto each ticket sold (including pre-paid travel player tickets) and a Facebook Live or Zoom drawing on April 19.

Thanks for supporting CiTY!
