Reverse Raffle to Benefit the 2014 Catholic Faith Appeal
First Prize: $10,000
We want to raise a minimum of $12,000 for the Catholic Faith Appeal through the raffle. What a great event! You get a great night out with your spouse or significant other and stand the chance of winning some serious cash.
“What is a Reverse Raffle?” It is exactly what the name implies. Rather than the 1st ticket drawn winning the raffle, the last ticket drawn in a Reverse Raffle is the big winner. In this particular instance, we will be selling 300 tickets for the raffle at a cost of $100 each. The winning ticket (or the last one drawn) will win $10,000.00. This is a great return on a $100 investment. In addition, your $100 ticket also gains you (and a guest) admission to the party where you will enjoy dinner, entertainment and an open bar. In order to keep everyone’s interest throughout the evening, we will also offer cash prizes randomly as the raffle progresses. The 1st ticket drawn will win $100 as will every 25th ticket drawn for the remainder of the raffle. So in other words, 12 lucky attendees will get their money back and enjoy a great evening of entertainment at no cost. In addition, a DJ will be playing music before the raffle begins and then playing 30 minute sets after the drawing of every 100 numbers allowing those who want to get up and dance the opportunity to do so. You need not be present to win, so if you are headed back to your northern residence and unable to attend, you are encouraged to purchase a ticket with the comfort of knowing that we will either send you a check for your winnings or keep your winnings in safekeeping until you return in the fall. If you have never attended a reverse raffle, let me assure you that it is a lot of fun. When the drawing is down to the final ten ticket holders, there is a great deal of excitement in the air creating an “electric” atmosphere. I have hosted several of these events in the past several years and on many occasions, there are multiple winners as the final three to five ticket holders have opted to split the $10,000.00 grand prize. Last year, there was only one winner who took home the entire $10,000.00 grand prize. So allow me to recap…..For $100, you will receive admission for two, a catered meal, an open bar and entertainment by a DJ as well as the chance to win $10,000.00. I can think of no better deal locally for a cost of $50 per person.
