It has to be a all or nothing raffle. Don't sell all 360 tickets everyone gets a refund.
Could also work with less, just less money to the charity though.

Sounds reasonable.
I would say offer the ticket or cash to get more interest but that defeats the purpose.
Maybe offer $18K cash or $32K towards the cruise+private cc/miles consult with me on the cruise?

I'd buy a ticket for $100 in a heartbeat if if it's going to charity, otherwise potential return is much better with a powerball.
How many charities you want me to list for you to donate to?
I just found a new supply of forks!

Was it not clear that I was referring to in such a raffle?

Maybe we can get a general idea of what people would be willing to pay for an entry, and how much they'd want going to charity. Then we can start a wiki to see how many "pre-sales" we have. If we have a solid 5% commitment we might have an easier time getting this off the ground

That a much better idea! The cash prize should always be less than the prize value.

Would you prefer paying $180 or the gamified pay between $1-$360?

Most of these type of raffles I get in is $100.

I like the latter, but it would deter those who can't afford to give more then $100/$200/$250 etc. I think a set ticket price would be better.

This number seems right. The question is will enough tickets sell. If this hits the MS and gains some publicity, we may attract a donor or 2 to add a runner up prize in return for putting their "sponsorship" up there.

+1 some times I hesitate to donate in the $1-$360 gamble, not always do you want yo donate $360. A $100 ballpark donation sounds reasonable. IMO

$100 ticket would need nearly twice as many sales as that.
$180 would be the comp.

Poll added. Let me know if there is any way to edit it for the better. Kinda hard to poll 2 questions in one.

Waiting for the mileage price terms
Time to up your MS game.

1.2M MR @ 1.3 = $15.6k
800k SPG @ 1.8 = $14.4k
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
