ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?
The Cubs are floundering and the Sox will finish under .500 for the seventh straight year. Thank goodness football is right around the corner.
To make this upcoming NFL season even more exciting (Sports Illustrated notwithstanding), the Advancement Board at Saints Peter and Paul School is kicking off a new fundraiser. This initiative, called NFL Survivor Pool, is being spearheaded by Mike Leitner, a Saints Peter and Paul School father of four and the Treasurer of our Advancement Board.
What is the NFL Survivor Pool?
Each week a participant picks a NFL team that they think will win that week's game. If you pick correctly, you are still in the pool. If you don't, you are out. The caveat is that in the remaining weeks, you cannot pick the same team to win again. As the season goes on, it becomes more difficult to pick winners.
To keep things interesting, there is a $50 entry fee.
We will give half of the money raised to the winner and the other half to SSPP for tuition assistance. Everyone is welcome to play, and we encourage you to invite friends and family to play as well.
Here are the steps to register:
If you are interested in joining, please respond to co-chairs Mike Leitner and Sean Farrell at
firstname.lastname@example.org. They will confirm your entry and send the rules.
Once the fee has been paid, we will send you a link and password to the league.
Make your pick for the first week.
We had great success years ago when we championed Football Mania and hope you will find this new venue equally as much fun to participate.
