JJJSA Raffle- We are changing it up this year Folks!

For many years, calling out raffle prizes has always been very exciting at the Annual Program’s Welcome Reception!  Thanks to our most gracious vendors, we have had many generous prizes such as laptops, iPads, cameras, gift cards, text books and educational posters.  With all the wonderful prizes, who wouldn’t be excited?

In the past, we have always sold raffle tickets for $10/each.  All the raffle tickets were mixed together in one big box.  At the closing of the Welcome Reception, the raffle tickets were called out for the prize in hand!  Well, we are changing it up this year folks!

After much thought and consideration, we are now going to present our raffle donations in a different fashion!  So, listen up folks, this is how we are going to proceed… Tickets will still be sold at $10/each and you can still buy as many raffle tickets as your heart desires.  The raffle items will be displayed on a table during the Welcome Reception. Each item will have a cup in front of it where people can place their ticket to try to win that item. This is where 'the more than one ticket' comes in…if you see more than one raffle item you would like to try and win, you would need to place one ticket in the cup of first raffle item and a second ticket in the cup of second raffle item…makes sense so far?  If you want to increase your chances of winning, then it would be wise to place more than one ticket in the cup of the desired raffle item!

The two or three items with the greatest amount of tickets will be announced during the Welcome Reception.  For the raffle items with less tickets, the winning name will be written on a special index card next to the winning prize! Ticket buyers can walk to table and take a peek to see if they have won or not.  So what happens to items with no tickets?  All the extra tickets will be tossed in one big box and winners will be drawn.  

This will be a more exciting process than what we previously had.  I look forward to seeing who wins the great prizes we'll have this year!
