Earn More Tickets!

Want to snag more tickets for the raffle? Here’s a few ways to help rack ’em up so your chances at winning some swag are even better than before.

RED tickets are distributed to folks who raise under $500 and are good for secondary prizes during the raffle.
YELLOW tickets are considered “wild card” tickets and are distributed to anyone who raises over $500 -or- who partakes in any of the ways mentioned below.

The raffle works like this:

  • 1 RED ticket for the initial $100
  • 1 RED ticket for each additional $50 raised, up to $499
  • These tickets are good for the “Almost At The Top Prizes” and you can distribute them however you’d like

RAISE $500+: Grand Prize Eligibility + Almost At The Top Prize Eligibility

  • All RED tickets raised from the previous level now convert to YELLOW.
  • Hit $500 and receive 10 YELLOW bonus tickets
  • Earn 2 YELLOW tickets per $50 raised, up to $999
  • These tickets are good for ANY of the prizes available – you distribute them however you want

RAISE $1000 + 

  • Snag 25 bonus YELLOW tickets for hitting $1000
  • Earn 10 YELLOW tickets per $50 beyond $1K
  • These tickets are good for ANY of the prizes available – you distribute them however you want
