No matter how you do it you are sponsoring someone's ticket as you call it.
If it's to charity you aren't.

Justify it anyway you want it comes out the same way. Who runs it has nothing to do with it.

If the extra money goes to charity then a percentage of each ticket goes to charity.

Correct and a percentage goes to supporting someone's ticket.

But the whole price paid is deductible though.
I have nothing against DDF running it without charity though.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

His point is you are supporting someone's ticket. My point is no matter how you do it you are supporting someone's ticket if you don't win.

I don't care who runs it but KISS is the way to go.

Wouldn't it then involve sweepstakes rules, 1099s, and who knows what else?

Obviously, but someone will. If it's a charity these things are much simpler, AFAIK.

I think this kind of defeats the purpose. If I wanted to enter a charity raffle to win $30,000 there are hundreds of raffles ever year from almost every organization out there. I can attend Chinese auctions that are held every other day minute and win allot more $$ for cheaper tickets.  I think the whole point is that its a small intimate raffle amongst DDF's here with a much higher odds of winning.

I'm with you
the only issue is that we'll need 150 DDF's to pay at-least $100 to make it possible even for only one seat

Though then you have to ask if it's halachically permissible.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Just a thought - If there is a cash option, somebody who may have really wanted to join & ends up winning may not be able to justify to themselves taking the trip instead of $18k (or wtvr it will be). Maybe there should only be a cruise option & if the winner canít come you pick a new winner.
