Reverse Raffle

The Reverse Raffle is a special event!  Local celebrities will entertain you throughout the evening as the numbers are drawn.

The evening starts with dinner for those that RSVP’d.

Throughout and after dinner, silent auction items may be bid on and the ticket drawings will begin!

We start drawing numbers, actually we end up drawing ALL numbers throughout the evening.  In a reverse raffle, the last drawn number is the grand prize winner.  But we have other prizes throughout the night as well.  For instance, the first number drawn will win a cash prize and we will periodically draw numbers for smaller cash prizes throughout the night.

We hold a few tickets back from sale, and these tickets will be auctioned off towards the end of the event.  If your ticket is drawn early, you have the chance to purchase another ticket to get back in the game!

You do not need to be present to win.  However, when it gets down to a just a few tickets left, our hosts will ask those ticket holders if they would like to keep going with the draw, or if they would like to ‘make a deal’.  For example, some past participants have opted to group together and split the winnings.  In this case, if you are not present, we will be calling you on the phone number you provided to get your input.

We were honored to have these hosts in our past events:
