Another Antarctica Raffle!

This should be a much smaller scale raffle than the first. Just live for a few days and lower price points and prize:

They said the minimum will be anything that is profitable.

I'd probably cave to my FOMO and buy a ticket, but I'm not really looking for another raffle

Not my raffle, I'd suggest emailing them.
If they give me updates to post I will.

Chai Elul is the new Pesach Sheini :)
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

At this rate, you could fill the whole boat just by having people buy raffle tickets from various Chabad raffles.

Personally, I'm somewhat surprised that the first raffle did so well, as for many people, there are so many logistics of the trip that make it hard for them beyond the cost (people who follow different poskim regarding Shabbos and the fast times, people who can't go away for 2 weeks, people who can't be virtually unreachable for that long, people who have health-concerns with sailing through the Drake etc).

You're over-complicating things. If I do win, I'll figure out logistics to make it work. If I can't make it work, then for $118 cost, I could just take the $5k cash prize and sell the cruise tickets to highest bidder.
Or for this time around, $79 cost for $3.5k cash and 1 ticket to sell.

Plus the Tzedaka / donation aspect if I don't win.

Pesach sheini in YOEC was always a major farbrengen and became my favorite yomtov.

Thank you all for your support!

There is a long ways to go, but we are confident that the minimum will be reached.
