Win Big with Our Ticket Drawing: $2 per Entry or 3 for $5 - Enter Now!

In summary, the conversation discusses a potential idea for a raffle at shows, where guests can buy tickets for a chance to win a PC gift certificate worth the total amount collected. Some concerns are raised about the legality of raffles and the conversation shifts to discussing the rules and regulations in Knox County, Illinois. The idea is generally well-received and the original poster plans to do more research on the legality of raffles before implementing the idea.
a drawing where you have guests buy tickets ($2/each or 3 for $5), and the winner gets the total collected in a PC gift certificate?

I think I am going to offer this at all my shows too - doesn't it sound exciting???? Could end up with $50 or more free if several participate!

:)
 
I think that sounds like an interesting idea. I'd like to hear what others have to say and if anyone has tried this before.

Oh! LOL. Good name for it! :) Thanks I think I *will* use it!
 
A word of caution--when I worked in fundraising, raffles were kind of dicey legally. I can't remember the details, because it's been 10+ years. (So things may have changed) I'm wracking my brain to try to remember whether the problem was winning cash (or the cash pot-equivalent in products) or the nature of the business/charity/individual doing the raffle. Please look into whether it is legal for you to do a raffle like this! I was in Texas at the time; it may vary from state to state or even counties or towns.
 
Interesting, if anyone finds out about this let me know.
 
I'm still poking around looking for details. I found some information about raffles in Knox County, Illinois, for example...

For raffles conducted in Knox County only, outside all incorporated city, town and village limits.

The winner won $103 in the form of shopping spree to be concluded in the next day or two ~ in the fundraising "party" and I am giving 100% commission to the cause (she is a 7 yr old girl in my Brownie Troop with ovarian cancer). Since it was such a HIT (and very exciting) I plan to do some form of it with my larger parties. I will also look into it. Maybe just calling it a silent or tea cup "auction" is all we need. a HUGE success! Yea

"The Pampered Pool"I have done this before. I borrowed the idea from a partylite consultant. I call it the Pampered Pool. I have a sheet with 54 numbered squares. people can buy as many #'s as they want at $2 a piece. If the whole board is filled, that person wins $100 in free product. The extra go towards shipping and handling. If the board is not completed, then the the amount of the free product is adjusted accordingly. I usually have one of these in the host packet and the host can get squares even from people that choose not to order. I always do the drawing after everyone has ordered, so that it is a bonus to what they already ordered.
