This Raffle will be conducted by STCC as per following rules approved by the Raffle committee, our lawyer, Mr. Whit Slagsvol and the STCC management. Lawyer will explain the process and answer questions on the day of the drawing. 

  • Lawyer will verify and place the ticket stubs of sold tickets that match the master list provided to him by the Raffle Committee. This will happen one to two hours prior to the drawing. The master list will include names and other identifying information for every ticket stub. No stub without such information will be placed in the Raffle drum. Unsold tickets will be held by the Raffle committee. 
  • Each Raffle ticket stub has a unique 4-digit number. 
  • The process of choosing winners involves pulling ONE ticket stub with a valid 4-digit number for each prize. The drawing will be done by a child randomly chosen from the audience by the lawyer.
  • If more than one tickets are pulled out by mistake, they will be put back in the Raffle drum and a re-draw will take place.
  • After each successful draw the winning Raffle ticket number and not the name on the stub will be announced by the lawyer and recorded by a Raffle Committee member.
  • Winners will be drawn in the reverse order of value starting with the $200 Amazon Gift Card first and Grand Prize last.
  • Once a ticket is drawn, it will be removed from further drawing.
  • A written record of all winning tickets will be maintained.
  • All prizes except the Grand Prize will be distributed after the Raffle process is complete.
  • Prizes can be claimed by presenting a matching valid ticket and valid ID to the Raffle committee.
