COAL - Chance of a Lifetime Drawing

This is a drawing held each year featuring 16 differnet prizes for $1.00/ticket. Proceeds from the COAL drawing directly benefit the scholarship program.

2017 COAL Program

The Pennsylvania State Council convention is behind us. The COAL program is off to an early start again this year. COAL books have been ordered and are expected to be received and distributed to the Councils who placed orders by mid to late June. Councils who have no ordered yet can still sign up by completing the order form below or by calling Joe Caromano at 610-449-4778 (email

As I stated at the Convention, the 2016 was a success. The COAL committee who worked 400+ hours between Thanksgiving and December 8th did an excellent job but more important was the support that you, Brother Knights, and your councils gave. For your dedication and effort I offer a sincere thank you to all of you. Last year 20 councils who did not participate in previous years became involved. This certainly helped the success of the program. I hope more councils become involved this year.

At the State Convention a drawing was held to present two (2) $50.00 checks to the Councils who ordered COAL books either prior to the convention or at the convention. The winning Councils were North Pocono #6050 of Moscow and Our Lady of the Lake #13752 of Pocono Pines.

Each of our participating Councils is asked to sell or buy at least 10 more books than were sold during 2016. By doing so you will help us meet the escalating costs of the prizes and running the program.

The sales bonus for increased sales over the previous year will again be $1.00 for each COAL book sold over the quantity sold during the 2016 program. New participants will have a starting point of 50 books. Returning the books stubs by December 1st will entitle the Council to $.25 per book bonus.

This important program funds the scholarships that are awarded each year at the State Council convention. The children of our membership can use all the help they can get to cover their college costs. Please don’t cheat them of this opportunity.
