The prize drawings will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2023, starting at 3:00 pm in the museum’s lobby, 161 Museum Drive, Hershey, PA 17033. Tickets will not be available after 2:55 pm on October 6, 2022. Obtaining a raffle ticket does not entitle the raffle ticket holder general admission to the museum. The winners are determined by a random drawing of raffle tickets. The winners need not be present to win. There will be three tickets drawn. The first ticket drawn will be the first prize winner. The second ticket drawn will be the second prize winner. The third ticket drawn will be the third prize winner. Drawing results are not final until after a routine audit is conducted of the tickets in the drawing barrel.
3000 tickets are available for sale at a price of $55 for a single ticket and $50 per ticket when more than one ticket is purchased at a time. In the event fewer than 2000 tickets are sold by 2:55 pm on October 7, 2023, the raffle will be held as scheduled but will be conducted as a “50/50” drawing with 50% of the collected net revenues being divided between the three prizes. The first prize winner will win an amount equal to 45% of the collected net revenues. The second prize winner will win an amount equal to 3.75% of the collected net revenues and the third prize winner will win an amount equal to 1.25%. For example, in the event 1100 tickets are sold, and the revenues less expenses is $55,000, the first prize winner will win $24,750. Calculated as follows $55,000 x .45 = $24,750. Second prize will win $2,062.50 ($55,000 x .0375 = $2,062.50) and third prize will win $687.50 ($55,000 x .0125 = $687.50. The calculation of the raffle ticket proceeds received, and the amount to be awarded are based solely on the museum’s accounting, which shall be final and conclusive with respect to all prize winners. The odds of winning each prize depend on the number of tickets sold. First and then second prize-winning tickets will be removed from the barrel and not included in drawings for the next prize. Raffle tickets may be purchased from January 1, 2023 until all 3000 raffle tickets are sold or 2:55 pm on October 7, 2023, whichever comes first.
