Too me personally what would be a major selling point is that only 200 tickets will be sold, (and mostly to local familiar SCN's) that my odds are way higher then by participating in some larger charity even were the odds of winning are 1 in few thousand.
Depending how much interest there is in tickets for $100/$180, you can always “raffle off” multiple 2 person packages..
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

I guess again I am the odd ball here. If you want to donate to a charity they go ahead and do it. This raffle IMHO is for those that can't shell out X amount of dollars. Set a price and number of tickets to be sold.

Then you're in effect sponsoring part of someones ticket. Not too terrible, but harder if it's open to the public.

No matter how you do it you are sponsoring someone's ticket as you call it.

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.
