Congratulations to this year's 50/50 raffle winner: Marissa Bame, from Monticello, MN! A special thanks to all those who participated in the raffle. Together we were able to raise $2,630.00 to support the DinoMights' effort to secure a new vehicle for their program!
The raffle involves many people buying tickets for a chance to win a cash prize. In the case of this 50/50 fundraising raffle, the prize is 50% of the money taken in by the raffle ticket sales. The other 50% is retained by the nonprofit (DinoMights) holding the raffle. Hence the name, 50-50 raffle fundraiser.
A person can purchase one or more tickets, and each ticket purchased equals one entry in the draw for a winner. At the end of the event a single ticket is randomly chosen.
