The point is to highly incentivize the cruise option, but still appeal to everyone
Or how about you offer a NY seminar for all of the losers. Since that is basically extinct nowadays I bet people would be happy to enter the raffle.

A DO doesn't have preparation, I don't feel comfortable sitting there trying to pull out all the info I can with no specific topic, (although we did our fair share of that), a seminar is a prepared speech, with what to talk about.
If have a roll of secrets to reveal at a DO, can we arrange one for tonight?

There's nothing that Dan is able to share that you need from a seminar at this point. Anything that can be shared publicly is already available here and elsewhere online. What exactly do you think you'll gain from a seminar?

Maybe offer $18K cash or $32K towards the cruise+private cc/miles consult with me on the cruise?
If the offer includes an option for a cash prize, imo the cruise option doesn't need to be for two.. the cash option should definitely include a consult... Could be $10k cash or the $12k cruise option plus flights.. that way the options are much closer in value

My gut feeling is that there would be more interest if it was for two, rather than one. I may think that because of my personal situation though.

It might be a real investment with a return  ;)

If I was in a position to pay for this, between Somethingfishy and Dan, I'd be counting on a significant return. Instead I'll just hope this raffle happens!

Consult is difficult given that I live in CLE. The cruise gives a good opportunity to offer that.
Not aiming to have the options close in value.

The point of the raffle would be for someone to get to go on the cruise. You have to offer something else in lieu of the cruise on the off chance that whoever wins can't go but that prize doesn't have to be nearly the same value as the cruise. If you can't go, and you would only buy the ticket for the prize and not the charity, just don't buy a ticket, simple as that.
