Entries which are or appear to be tampered with are void. Only one (1) individual may be identified as an entry purchaser. The Raffle is conducted in English. Entries may be purchased via the internet or the call center. Entry purchasers providing the Raffle with a valid email address will receive confirmation number(s) by return email. For all other entry purchasers, ticket confirmation number(s) will be mailed within ten (10) business days of purchase. This is the only confirmation that will be provided.

Each entry remains in the draw for all prize drawings. If entries are not sold out by midnight June 24, 2022, entry purchasers who purchased before midnight June 24, 2022 are eligible for all the remaining prizes on the Final Draw date.
Weekly Add-On Drawings: Participants in the Main Raffle have the option of also participating in the Weekly Add-On Drawing at the time of their purchase of the Main Raffle ticket(s).

The prize for each weekly drawing is $1,000 cash.
All Add-On tickets purchased prior to each of the weekly drawing Add-On Ticket Deadlines are eligible for that drawing as well as all subsequent weekly drawings, even if the ticket is a weekly drawing winner. Orders must be received by the Friday before each drawing date. Add-On Tickets must be ordered in conjunction with a raffle ticket. Add-On orders will not be accepted after the original raffle ticket order. Only one method of payment and only one mailing address are permitted.

The odds of a single ticket winning a prize vary depending on the number of tickets sold and the phase (Appreciation, Early Bird 1 or Final) in which the ticket is purchased; however, the odds for the Main Raffle are never greater than 1 in 135. The odds for the Add-On Raffle are solely dependent on the number of tickets purchased and, because there is no limit on the number of Add-On Raffle tickets that can be purchased, the odds for the Add-On Raffle drawing cannot be estimated or guaranteed. 331 prizes will be awarded.

An entry purchaser may subsequently “opt-out” of the receipt of such communications by following the directions in any email, other communication or by contacting the Administrator (contact information below). Purchase of an entry in the Raffle constitutes permission for the Raffle and Special Olympics Arizona to use winner’s name, address and/or likeness, in perpetuity, for purposes of advertising the Raffle or future raffles without further consent or compensation, unless prohibited by law.
Potential winners must complete all steps outlined in their winners’ letter within the designated timeframe. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, or if a potential winner does not comply with the Official Rules, then the potential winner will be disqualified and the prize or a cash equivalent will revert to Special Olympics Arizona.
In the unforeseen event the Raffle is cancelled or cannot be completed, every effort will be made to refund the ticket purchase price to all Raffle ticket purchasers. Tickets purchased by credit card will be refunded to credit card holder’s account. Special Olympics Arizona’s liability to any ticket purchaser is the purchase price of the ticket.

In the event a dispute shall arise between the purchaser and Special Olympics Arizona, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the raffle, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. The place of arbitration shall be in the State of Arizona. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Special Olympics Arizona shall be in default or otherwise liable for any delay in or failure of its performance of the Raffle if such delay or failure arises by any reason beyond reasonable control, including any act of God, any acts of war, terrorism, the elements, earthquakes, floods, fires, epidemics, pandemics, riots, failures or delay in transportation or communications, or any act or failure to act by the other party or such other party’s employees, agents or contractors.
Should a dispute arise between a purchaser and Special Olympics Arizona, purchaser agrees that all cases, controversies, and legal issues shall be governed by the laws and jurisdiction of the State of Arizona.
All winners shall be responsible for any and all federal, state and local income or excise taxes, fees, assessments and like charges associated with the prizes. All cash prizes will be paid net of applicable income tax withholding.
At the time of this printing, federal law requires that corresponding tax withholding on prize values of $5,000 or greater must be collected from winners upon award and distribution. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time prizes are claimed will be followed. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.
