BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF METRO DENVER
2015 Dream Big Raffle Official Rules
Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, Inc. (“BGCMD”), a Colorado nonprofit
corporation and tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the
Internal Revenue Code, is conducting the Dream Big Raffle (the “Raffle”)
to raise funds for its ongoing charitable activities and purposes. The
rules (the “Rules”) of the Raffle, set forth below, govern the Raffle,
award of prizes, and participation in the Raffle.
These Rules bind every person (a “Ticket Holder”) who buys or holds a
Raffle ticket. By purchasing or holding a ticket, each Ticket Holder agrees
(a) to be bound by these Rules and (b) that BGCMD’s interpretation and
application of these Rules is conclusive and final.
The Grand Prize Drawing for the Raffle will take place on November 20,
2015 (the “Grand Prize Drawing Date”). The final ticket purchase deadline
for entry is November 6, 2015 (the “Final Ticket Purchase Deadline”).
Only 40,000 tickets will be sold. As set forth in the “Prizes” section
below, the number of tickets sold determines the Grand Prize that BGCMD
will award. The drawing is open to the public, but the winner need not
be present to win.
Raffle tickets cost $100 each, 3-packs for $250, or 5-packs for $375.
Only one Eligible Ticket Purchaser (as defined below in the “Eligibility”
section of these Rules) may purchase a ticket. This means, (a) one name
per ticket and (b) one purchaser per ticket. An Eligible Ticket Purchaser
may designate another person a Ticket Holder. If a ticket names more than
one person as a Ticket Holder and that ticket is a winning ticket, then
BGCMD will (a) deem the person named first on the ticket as the Ticket
Holder, (b) declare the first person named on the ticket as the winner,
and (c) award the prize to the first person named on the ticket. In such
case, the division of the prize shall be the sole responsibility of the
first person named on the ticket. Once BGCMD awards the prize to the first
person named on a ticket, BGCMD will have no further duties or obligations
with respect to the division of the prize and all persons named on a ticket
as Ticket Holders release BGCMD from all claims relating to the award
of the prize or its division among other persons on a ticket named as
The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances in Raffles,
lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts and therefore
do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.
To be eligible to purchase a ticket, a ticket purchaser (an “Eligible
Ticket Purchaser”) must (a) be at least 18 years old at the time of purchase,
(b) be a U.S. resident physically residing in the United States or District
of Columbia, and (c) not be precluded by Applicable Law (as that term
is defined in the “Registration with the State of Colorado and Applicable
Law” section of these Rules”) from holding or purchasing a ticket or participating
in a raffle.
A person cannot be an Eligible Ticket Purchaser or a Ticket Holder if
such person or holder is a person (a) with whom U.S. persons or entities
are restricted from doing business under regulations of the Office of
Foreign Asset Control of the Department of the Treasury (including those
named on OFAC’s Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List”) or under
any statute or executive order or (b) who is acting, directly or indirectly,
for or on behalf of any such person.
BGCMD employees, members of the board of directors, and members of their
respective household may not purchase a ticket and are not eligible to
win a prize.
BGCMD reserves the right to require reasonable evidence of the eligibility
of an Eligible Ticket Purchaser or Ticket Holder at any time and to void
any ticket sold to a person who does not meet the eligibility requirements
or who is precluded by applicable law from holding a ticket or participating
in a raffle.
How to Purchase Tickets
Eligible Ticket Purchasers may purchase Raffle tickets online at www.MileHighRaffle.com
or make a ticket reservation by calling toll-free (888) 506-6053. At the
time of purchase, Eligible Ticket Purchasers must provide their name,
address, phone number, credit card number, credit card security code and
expiration date, and such other information as BGCMD may require. Eligible
Ticket Purchasers may also purchase tickets by mail or in person at Boys

Eligible Ticket Purchasers may not purchase tickets by email or voice
mail. All entries must include payment by check, money order, or credit
Tickets will be distributed and ticket numbers will be assigned in the
order that payment is received. All payments will be deposited upon receipt.
BGCMD reserves the right to reject any entry form that it deems defective,
illegible, ineligible, or submitted without “good funds.”
In accordance with Applicable Law, BGCMD will not mail Raffle tickets
to Ticket Holders. BGCMD will mail or email unofficial raffle tickets
as receipts for ticket purchases to the person named on each Raffle ticket
entry form within two to four weeks of purchase. Hard copies of official
tickets are available upon request or if no email address is available.
To win a prize, Ticket Holders do not need (a) to possess a hard copy
of a Raffle ticket or a receipt in order to win and (b) do not need to
be present at a drawing.
Each Raffle ticket purchased before a deadline qualifies for all future
drawings for which that ticket is eligible. Each winner of a special Early
Bird Drawing will be automatically re-entered in all subsequent drawings
for which that ticket is eligible.
All Raffle ticket sales are final. BGCMD will make no refunds except under
the following circumstances: BGCMD will return any payment that BGCMD
receives after (a) it has sold 40,000 tickets or (b) after the Final Ticket
Purchase Deadline. No other refunds are available except at the discretion
of BGCMD. BGCMD assumes no responsibility for lost, late, misdirected,
or non-delivered mail, email or fax messages, or any other failure to
receive orders or deliver receipts prior to the drawing deadlines.
BGCMD will draw at random and determine winning tickets under the supervision
of BGCMD’s certified games manager(s). Drawings will be open to the public,
but winners need not be present to win. At each Early Bird or Special
Drawing, a Raffle ticket will be drawn for prizes in reverse order, beginning
with the lowest valued prize and ending with the 1st prize. No Raffle
ticket can win more than one prize in any one Special or Early Bird Drawing.
All winning tickets from Early Bird or Special Drawings will be re-entered
and will be eligible for all future drawings, including the Grand Prize
Any individual who is named on three or more tickets will be entered into
the Multi-Ticket Drawing, subject to the following; to be eligible entrants
must be named on three or more tickets during the same order, using one
method of payment, using the same name on each ticket, and the same mailing
address for each eligible ticket. For each eligible ticket assigned, a
corresponding eligible ticket stub will be added into the Multi-Ticket
Drawing. Three tickets assigned will have three ticket stubs entered into
the Multi-Ticket Drawing. Four tickets assigned will have four ticket
stubs entered into the Multi-Ticket Drawing, etc. Multiple tickets purchased
at the same time are eligible for discounts. 3-packs are available for
$250 and 5-packs are available for $375.
50/50 Add-On Drawing
- Winner will be awarded half the jackpot of the 50/50 bonus drawing.
- 50/50 Add-On Tickets are one for $10, 5-pack for $25 or 15-pack
Guidelines for purchasing 50/50 Add-On tickets are as follows:
- Only one method of payment and only one mailing address are permitted.
- Only one name can be listed per ticket
- 50/50 Add-On Tickets must be ordered at the same time as your Dream Big
Raffle ticket order.
- 50/50 Add-On orders will not be accepted after your original raffle ticket
At the Grand Prize Drawing, Raffle tickets for all prizes except the Grand
Prize will be drawn first, in reverse order, beginning with the lowest
valued prize and ending with 2nd prize. Those winning tickets will then
be re-entered with all other Raffle tickets in the Grand Prize Drawing.
At the discretion of BGCMD and subject to approval of the Colorado Secretary
of State, BGCMD may extend or modify ticket purchase deadlines (the Final
Ticket Purchase Deadline) and drawing dates, times, and locations. A list
of Raffle winners will be posted on the Raffle website (www.MileHighRaffle.com).
The BGCMD Certified Games Manager(s) is the final authority in the event
of any disputes regarding any of the drawings.
Odds of Winning
The odds of winning one or more prizes will depend on the number of tickets
sold. If BGCMD sells all 40,000 tickets, the odds of winning the Grand
Prize are 1 in 40,000. The chance of winning the Grand Prize, Early Bird
Prizes, Special Drawing Prizes, and secondary prizes will vary based upon
the number of tickets sold, and if BGCMD sells less than 40,000 tickets
or adds additional drawings or prizes, the chance of winning a prize will
increase. The odds of winning a prize are 1 in 20.
