FYI, I have not yet had a response from Mayor King or the director of community services about this raffle.
Will keep you posted.

Before I make a bid on Ebay, I always look at the number of posts, I mean transactions that they have done.
Yes That was typed that way on purpose.

Better Odds

We have these type of raffles in Santa Barbara and Paso Robles usually every year. The one in Santa Barbara is put on by the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum. The tickets are $150 each and they sell a maximum of 18,000. First prize is a Santa Barbara house or $1,000,000. They have like 300 runner up prizes too. These raffles are all legit and are becoming a popular way for nonprofit groups to raise money for their cause. Even though a contibution to most of these non-profit groups may be tax-deductible, the IRS does not recognise buying a raffle ticket (and losing) as a contribution, so is not tax-deductible. You can bet if you were to win the raffle, the IRS would be right there for their cut though...

Here is the reply I received directly from the village of Botkin,OH.


"Michael:

My name is Michael VanBrocklin, and I am the Village Administrator for the
Village of Botkins. I am also the President of the BCIC, which is an acronym
for the "Botkins Community Improvement Corporation". The BCIC is organized
under Chapter 1724 of the Ohio Revised Code, and may act as the agent for
the Village in matters of economic, commercial, industrial and research
development. The mayor, myself, and two council members (as well as
community representatives) all serve on the BCIC. The BCIC has agreed to
support the Airstream Raffle, which is being organized and run by two
Council members, Craig Brown and Steve Woodruff. It is a legitimate effort
to raise funds for the Botkins Pool Committee."


Go for it in confidence,

Michael

Bambi Raffle

Hey all,

I recently saw this link to an an Airstream Raffle. I have checked with the CPAs overseeing it and it is legit. I have no stake in promoting it whatsoever:

Organization

Botkins Community Improvement Corporation of Botkins, OH.

Benefits
Fundraiser to benefit the Botkins Memorial Pool Committee for future upgrades and renovations.


AirstreamRaffle.com

Good luck,

Steve

Does anyone know the results of last year's raffle by this group? Was the Airstream given to someone and made public? ~G

9. Modification or Cancellation of Drawing: The BCIC and the BMPC reserves the right to cancel or modify the Raffle. If 800 tickets are not sold by 5:00 p.m. on June 30, 2007, BMPC, at its option, may modify the Raffle by withdrawing the prizes and split the remaining net proceeds (income less expenses) equally between one drawn entrant (the Grand Prize winner) and the BMPC. In the event that any non-monetary prize is lost, damaged, destroyed, or otherwise not available, the BMPC shall be limited to refund of ticket price to participants. The BCIC and the BMPC's liability for any other claim is limited to refund of ticket price.

Looks like they win regardless...

I wonder if that's what happened at the last "drawing".

I don't think that there was a last drawing. That was November so maybe it's the same drawing?

This is the first year that the Botkins Community Improvement Corporation of Botkins, OH has held this raffle. It is intended to repeat annually from this year on. This raffle got a late start and began in October. There are still plenty of tickets available. As I may have mentioned earlier in this thread, I am from Botkins and built the website for this raffle so if anyone has any questions feel free to post any questions for me or PM me.

Thanks
Nick

You can't win if you don't play. Seems like a good prize and a good way for the community to fund it's infrastructure. Good luck.
