Unfortunately, the purchase of raffle tickets is not tax deductible. According to the IRS, you are not making a strict donation to charity as you are receiving something in return for your contribution, a chance to win a home or other prize. To claim a prize, you only need to show your driver’s license to prove your identity.

There are 10,000 tickets available for sale this year. Over the past couple of years, the project has averaged about 5,000-6,000 tickets sold for each home raffle.

You may purchase a ticket as a gift for someone else and put it in their name. The only requirement is that the ticket be in the name of someone 18 years or older. Tickets may not be in the name of a company.

You do not need a printed copy of your ticket. If you purchase one online, an email receipt will be sent to you. Should you win a prize, you need only show your drivers’ license to claim it.

Tickets are numbered for accounting purposes only. Prizes are drawn by the person’s name, not the ticket number, and winners are then contacted by the phone numbers provided on the ticket.

The deadline to purchase tickets for the 20201 Home for the Holidays is Tuesday, December 7th at 11:59 p.m. at Midnight. Sales will end at the ticket outlet locations at the close of business on Tuesday, December 7th.

All winning tickets are placed back into the hopper for all future drawings, including the Grand Prize. This gives each ticket the potential of winning every single prize in the contest!
Should you win a prize, you need only present your driver’s license upon pick-up to prove your identity. You have THIRTY (30) days from the drawing date to take possession of your prize. Otherwise, it will be rewarded to a second runner-up.
