RRCA Fundraising Events
RRCA Spring Show
For the last five years, the RRCA Spring Show has been a crowd favorite with over 1000 people in attendance each year. Students in middle school and high school choirs perform full junior musicals on the “big stage” in an elegant dinner theater style setting right here on our campus. Previous productions include Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Guys & Dolls, Hamilton, The Lion King, Frozen, Willy Wonka and Alice in Wonderland. Corporate and individual sponsors help underwrite this annual spring event, which raises funds for the Annual Fund, the Fine Arts Department, and our Gym Campaign. The Spring Show is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year with table sponsorships starting at $1000 and individual tickets ranging from $10-$25 each. The overall school fundraising goal for this even is $80,000. Show Spring Creative Director and Development Director, Brandy Johnson partners with choral director Kristi Roark and both Joyful Sounds and High Call Choirs to bring alive these timeless stories alive on stage.
Preschool and Elementary students “race” to see which homeroom can raise the most funds to support RRCA for our annual Jog-a-Thon fundraiser! This event is a fun day for students to jog/run with their classmates and compete for individual prizes while fundraising for our Annual Campaign. Students who raise funds get to shop from the CrusaderMart SuperCart weekly during the event and those who reach their $350 individual goal are rewarded with a special event/party when the fundraiser is complete! The overall school fundraising goal for this event is $75,000. This year’s Jog-A-Thon theme is Under the Big Top!
Middle School Spring Event
Students in 6th-8th grades participate in the “Kickin’ It Crusader Style” Kickball Tournament which helps raise funds for RRCA! Students play against each other on teams and their teachers serve as kickball coaches! The champions get their team’s name on the Kickball trophy and receive additional prizes for coming out on top. This event is very competitive, and the rivalry ramps up as each team is challenged the most money with an overall event goal of $25,000.
High School Spring Event
High school students participate in the infamous CRUSADERBALL Dodgeball Tournament fundraiser each spring with a goal of raising $25,000! Dodgeball drafts are held in February where student captains build their teams and once formed; they pick a fun name, design a team t-shirt, choose a team color and compete against their high school classmates for a full afternoon. Students fundraise for “jailbreak” cards which help them gain advantages over other teams when competing. CrusaderBall is a hit with high school students and help them become involved in the fundraising process.
