I bought a ticket to support the shul, I didn't buy by the other Raffles. There are many people who bought for that reason. Had I win, I would have love to go with my wife, but I don't think I would end up going and I would try to sell it.
Most people have jobs and kids and they are not the type to spend 20k for a cruise and not even 13k.
So if they have an offer to exchange it for cash they would do it.
If the shul had a choice between a cash raffle and the cruise,  most mispallim would have chosen cash.
However,  it was a smart move from the shul to get outside people donating for the shul.

Any idea what percentage of the tickets were sold to outside people? @shul raffle 3

But for someone who planed to sell, what difference did it make that it was a raffle for the cruise?

Nobody is going to get 25k - that's barely less than the rack rate was and there's a limited pool who will hear about it in the next 24 hours.

I could only see sling for someone who wasn't sure if they could go, but with the ticket bought on Sunday per the coordinator and listed for sale on Tuesday, I'm not sure if the point to this endeavor.

$25K is nothing but a pipe dream with a 24 hour ticketing requirement.
Next time enter a raffle with a cash prize or donate regularly and get a receipt?

Does raffle 2 have to get the ship a name at the same time as raffle 3?

I'd imagine a good place to start would be advertising on DDMS...

You should take a 50% commission as ad revenue instead of a fee

$25k really isn't that much of a savings, I would think anyone who really wanted to go and was willing to pay that would have already bought spots.

Yes a few 5 digit offers, so will need to come in competitive.

So a technically correct answer that provides absolutely no useful information. 
You should be a politician. :))
