@Deal Guy, why not start a new thread here for people to bid on a $13K berth in a triple cabin?
Can charge the same rates as Chabad did and have pretty decent odds of winning.
I'm not good at this

Would only need 100 DDFers. Less if people bought multiple tickets.
Would be cooler if the winner was an active DDFer, no?
Definitely. How many tickets ended up selling to active users here?

I'd guess there were around that many, but I don't have any easy of way of knowing without plugging in every email address.
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.

So no way to do something for people that already paid and got their odds raised due to the high exposure and popularity. How many times can I buy?  :)

If you download a full member list from your database, you can do a quick VLOOKUP in Excel to cross-reference.

But still wouldn’t get everyone, as people would’ve had to use the same email address here and there (or not changed the one here since signup, although you should have that history too).

In the Chabad raffle it was 2 tickets, so u had the ability to contact another ddfer and split the cost.
By just doing a solo, you don't even have that option to lower your cost.

Why not?
Use the same pricing structure if you want.

Irrelevant. You don't need 30k to break even

What’s more disappointing than losing once?
Losing twice :)

2 tickets on the cruise not 2 tickets in raffle.
So charge less. The math is still the same.

$50 a ticket for one person shouldn’t be a hard sell.

@EJB you are selling a worse prize then Chabad. You are only doing 1 ticket?

I'm not selling anything. I'm lowering the minimum. If there is sufficient interest we can raffle more, but we'd need that interest. @Dan , how would a single berth in a triple cabin work? We'd be paired up with someone random? Jewish? Male? Ddf? Any any ddf discount?
