Quote
Dearest DDF Family!

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of love which I see, I am humbled by my fellow DDF'ers who took it upon themselves to join the fundraising effort and help me in my time of need. It gladdens my heart to be part of such a family, who will go out of their way to help their fellows in need, whether it is financial or otherwise. I will be forever grateful to all of you, to those who donated the prizes, to those who donated money, and to those who made this a reality.

Thanks again!



What's this all about?
If you've been following this thread you may know that a longtime DDF'er who has a young family was arrested for being on the scene at the time of the sting operation.  Many of you have probably even met him in the real world. Several generous DDF'ers have donated prizes to be raffled off to bring attention to the defense fund created on his behalf.

if you win a price in the $20 dollar raffle, are you eligible for the next $20 raffle with the same odds? For example, lets say I had a 5/1000 chance of winning a $20 price and I win price A, do I still have a 5/1000 chance to win price B or are my chances knocked down to 4/1000.
If the raffles for all the prizes are being done at the same time, the question is mute. I'm only wondering if the raffle is done one prize at a time.
