I hear that and agree.
Can the raffle maybe be done 12 houra early if we hit a min?

I think that would be fair. If x tickets are sold then the raffle will be 12 hours earlier.

I'm not convinced that the long raffle period actually causes more sales.

The final days calls to action is where both the previous raffles made the majority of their profits.
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.

I agree that most sales will come in after Yom Tov.

After Yom Tov, there are just a few days. For now, at this point, we need to give ourselves the most time.

That being said, we do understand what people are asking for. We will think about it. But at this point we haven't yet covered 50% of our expenses.

To put our perspective out there, it cost us a lot of money to run the raffle, and we haven't yet hit 50% of our expenses. By us shortening the time available to hold the raffle, we would be really hurting our chances of raising money to bulid our shul. 
Makes sense

Hopefully sales are picking up.
I just found a new supply of forks!

You need to run the raffle like the Cubs/Sox split the pot raffle. They raised over 300k. It was probably their thinking outside the box marketing.
There was smaller amounts but:
100 tickets for $20
150 tickets for $50
Still trying to figure out the logic.  :)

I once was told by an Israeli supermarket owner when I saw pricing line that: “when you buy in bulk, you pay for the packaging”

Worst part was I tried to buy 200 tickets last night with 38 minutes left. I get a message they are sold out. Say what?  >:(

If the winner does not want to go and just bought the raffle to support the Shul, would there be an option for me to buy the tickets at a discounted price or maybe even for full price?

I don't see why not.
The winner of the last raffle was selling, not sure if it's still available though

I’m asking because there won’t be a lot of time after the raffle.
