Please join us for the 10th annual “Best for Last” benefit raffle, November 16, 2017 from 5:30 to 8pm at the SD Discovery Center (SDDC).

You can win $10,000 in our reverse raffle – the last person drawn is the winner! Buy a ticket for one in 252 chances to win. You do not have to be present to win.

We always have an extra special prize for the 1st ticket drawn, plus special prizes for the 100th and 200th drawn. Cash prizes will be awarded for the 25th, 50th, 75th, 125th, 150th, 175th, & 225th tickets. (Like this – 25th = $25, 225th = $225.)

Don’t forget, you can be a “lucky loser” with a Loser’s Boost. If you purchase a “Loser’s Boost” and your ticket is drawn 241st or earlier, your ticket will be put into the “Loser’s Boost” box. When only nine tickets remain one ticket from the Loser’s Boost box will be drawn and added back into the drawing for $10,000. A “Loser’s Boost” costs $25 now or $50 at the event.

Need to buy your luck? You can! We will auction two bonus tickets when only 8 tickets remain in the raffle drum. You can join together with friends to bid on one of these valuable chances or buy it yourself!

Remember, there may be more than one winner! When only five tickets remain, we will call the remaining ticket holders to the front (or get them via phone). These folks will negotiate to split the grand prize or to keep drawing. If they agree to split, they share the prize. If they won’t split, the drawing and negotiations continue until a deal is made or until we have a single winner.

Even if you don’t win – eat, drink and be merry! Some of the very best caterers and chefs in the area will have samples of their tastiest work. Our Exchange Club bartenders will serve new and old favorites from Budweiser (Eagle Sales) and Capitol City Wine & Spirits. Music from the Jim Szana Trio will keep things lively.

Don’t miss the fun! Get your ticket today.
