RRCA Fundraising Events
RRCA Spring Show
For the last 7 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. This year, The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo will be brought to the stage in May of 2024. Previous productions include Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Willy Wonka, Annie, Guys & Dolls, The Lion King, Frozen 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 $1500 and individual tickets ranging from $10-$50 each with the overall event fundraising goal set at $80,000. Show Spring Creative Director, Brandy Johnson partners with Choral Director Alex D’Amico and Development Coordinator Christy Wolff to bring 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 $500 individual goal are rewarded with a special event/party when the fundraiser is complete! The overall school fundraising goal for this event is $95,000. This year’s Jog-A-Thon theme was Western!
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! Students have an individual fundraising goal of $500 each and earn tickets that they enter into a drawing for prizes such as gift cards, iPods, headphones, Kalahari passes, etc. 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 $30,000! 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 have an individual fundraising goal of $500 each and earn tickets that they can enter into drawings for fun prizes. CrusaderBall is a hit with high school students and help them become involved in the fundraising process at RRCA.
