Best for Last Better Than Ever!

The 12th annual “Best for Last” benefit raffle will be Thursday November 17, 2016 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 BUT you are going to want to be at the party!

The first ticket drawn is a big winner, a weekend for up to 11-people at Lona Lewis’s Diamond House vacation rental in Omaha, NE . The 100th ticket drawn will win 2 round-trip tickets to Denver from ADI. Cash prizes will be awarded for the 25th, 50th, 75th, 125th, 150th, 200th, 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.

Bonus Loser’s Boost drawing this year
A 2nd Loser’s Boost ticket will be drawn for
2 round trip tickets to Denver.

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!

THIS IS THE EXCITING PART!!! 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 wine Capital City Wine & Spirits. Music from the Jim Szana Trio will keep things lively.

Don’t miss the fun! Get your ticket today. Drop by the SD Discovery Center to purchase your lucky ticket!
