It might be a real investment with a return  ;)

Great now I can write it off

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.

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.

Agree, just trying to come up with a way to make it cheaper..

Consult is difficult given that I live in CLE. The cruise gives a good opportunity to offer that.

A domestic plane ride to CLE ain't adding that much.. and proportionally the difference between 18 and 32 is close to 10 and 13+flights etc... Or doesn't have to be the cheapest option to make an even bigger difference

I don't mind adding a domestic plane ride, or even making that a 2nd prize.
I'm just dubious that your typical person would fly to CLE and back for that and whether they would gain all that much other than easier MS while here... Also I don't want that to be resold and I'm not sure how to avoid that.

Maybe a second prize could be the consult in Cleveland and an Indians game with you? Then folks are flying out for more than the consult (and who doesn't love going to a ball game with a true fan?).

They have no need for a seminar in the first place.

Guess it depends on the tricks that you are willing to share...

Do you really think so, or are you just going to have a very limited amount of information you're willing to share

You can easily sell 300 IMHO, so why not make it 300 @$100

Fair enough. My point was to make it a straight-up raffle for the cruise, let's not start adding extra complications and money.
We can do 300x$100, $3000x10 or whatever makes the most sense.
