Raffle Rules and Regulations

Raffle Rules and Regulations
The Messner Foundation - Board of Directors (the “Foundation”), a Colorado nonprofit organization and tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is conducting the 2019 Messner Foundation Raffle (the “Raffle”) to raise funds for its ongoing charitable activities and purposes. The rules (the “Rules”) of the Raffle, as set forth below, govern the Raffle, award of prizes, and participation in the Raffle.

These Rules bind every person who buys or holds a Raffle ticket (“Ticket Holder”). By purchasing or holding a ticket, each Ticket Holder agrees (1) to be bound by these Rules and (2) that the Foundation’s interpretation and application of these Rules is conclusive and final.

Raffle tickets cost $100.00 per ticket. No more than 5,000 tickets will be sold. Pursuant to Internal Revenue Service regulations, amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts and therefore do not qualify as deductible charitable donations. This means you cannot deduct the cost of a raffle that you purchase on your taxes.

The Raffle will be conducted using Colorado Raffle license number 2019-14351 on behalf of the Foundation.

To be eligible to purchase a ticket, a Ticket Holder must (1) be at least 18 years old at the time of purchase, (2) be a U.S. resident physically residing in the United States or District of Columbia, and (3) not be precluded by Applicable Law (as 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 a Ticket Holder if such person is a person (1) 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 names on OFAC’s Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List) or under any statute or executive order or (2) who is acting, directly or indirectly, for or on behalf of any such person.

Foundation members may not purchase a ticket and are not eligible to win a prize.

The Foundation reserves the right to require reasonable evidence of the eligibility of a 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
Ticket Holders may purchase Raffle tickets online at www.messnerfoundation.org. At the time of purchase, Ticket Holders must provide their name, address, phone number, credit card number, credit card security code, expiration date, and any such other information the Foundation may require. Ticket Holders may not purchase tickets in-person or by email, mail, voicemail, or any other method not approved by the Foundation as listed above. All entries must include payment by debit or credit card.

Purchase Deadline
June 8, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time (Denver, CO) or upon the sale of 5,000 tickets, whichever occurs first. Ticket numbers will be assigned in the order that payment is received. All payments will be deposited upon receipt. The Foundation reserves the right to reject any entry form that it deems defective, illegible, ineligible, or submitted without good funds.

In accordance with Applicable Law, the Foundation will not mail Raffle tickets to Ticket Holders. Raffle tickets will be printed and retained by the Foundation. All tickets sold will be entered into the drawing. Raffle ticket copies will be distributed to Ticket Holders via e-mail that will identify the unique ticket number(s). To win a prize, Ticket Holders do not need (1) to possess a hard copy of a Raffle ticket, (2) a receipt, (3) to be present at the drawing. Purchase of a Raffle ticket does not grant admission or entry to the Messner Reeves 2019 Block Party at Sculpture Park.

All Raffle ticket sales are final and non-refundable. No refunds are available, except at the discretion of the Foundation. However, in the event the Raffle is cancelled, with the approval of the Colorado Secretary of State, all ticket purchases will be refunded. The Foundation assumes no responsibility for lost, late, misdirected, or any other failure to receive orders or deliver receipts prior to the drawing deadline.

The Drawing
The Foundation will draw at random and determine the winning ticket under the supervision of the Foundation’s Certified Games Manager (as defined by the Colorado Secretary of State). The drawing will not be open to the public. The winner does not need to be present to win.

Prize Drawing
The Price Drawing will occur at 9:00 p.m. on June 8, 2019, during the Messner Reeves, LLP 2019 Block Party, which will be held at Sculpture Park, 1736 Spear Blvd, Denver, Colorado 80204.

At the Prize Drawing, the winning Raffle ticket will be chosen by picking it from a Raffle drum containing all tickets. All tickets in the Raffle drum will be thoroughly mixed. The Ticket Holder of the winning ticket (the “Winner”) shall be notified via e-mail and Certified U.S. Mail at the address provided by the Ticket Holder. The winning ticket number and name of the Winner shall also be place on the Foundation’s website within 48 hours after the drawing.

The Foundation’s Certified Games Manager is the final authority in the event of any disputes regarding any of the drawings.

Odds of Winning
The odds of winning will depend on the number of tickets sold. The chance of winning the Grand Prize will vary based upon the number of tickets sold. If the Foundation sells all 5,000 tickets, then the odds of winning the Grand Prize are 1 in 5,000. If the Foundation sells less than 5,000 tickets, then the odds of winning the Grand Prize will increase.
