Antarctica Cruise Raffle (discussion?)
« Reply #90 on: July 23, 2018, 11:17:18 AM »
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.
I agree. I think $100 tickets make the most sense.

They have no need for a seminar in the first place.
I doubt that there are very many people that you wouldn't be able to teach a couple of tricks to. At the end of the day for most it is a hobby while for you it is a business!
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

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

So I guess there are at least a few DDFers that would like a consolation prize for all losers to be a throwback Dans Deals Seminar.

And a lot of people would pay $100 for a seminar without any raffle...

Why not make a raffle for $100 for 1 seat or $180 for 2 tickets (couple) (or something like that). Max tickets  that will be sold will be to cover the cost of the tickets (so odds are 1 in 130 etc).
Can start a wiki who is interested and if the right amount of ppl are then we do it. If not enough sign up then no harm no gain???

You'd have to account for those that say their interested but back out when it comes down to it.

If there are enough ppl someone trustable (plenty on DDF) collects all the QP for the ticket amount then he makes the raffle. Its not that difficult!

A big point here, is finding a charity that appeals to all sects of Judaism. We need to figure out where we can give this cash to, that most of the people who are interested in this raffle, would want to give $ to.

Why do we have to make it confusing. We can leave out the charity and make a simple raffle that covers the exact cost of the trip?

Another point: Assuming Dan (would be advertising this) is ok with it, we can definitely find a sponsor for a second prize or 3rd prize especially if we will put their business name on the raffle announcement.

Because many seem to be more willing to enter based on the fact that a percentage will be going to charity. With the amount of tickets we need to sell, having it all go solely to pay for someones cruise, may deter those less interested. Also, if we don't sell out, it would be a mess returning all the money.

What is the best platform to run this from? Obviously entries need to be made online, but are there sites that you can pay to create a raffle? Something like Charidy?
