The International Drop-In Center (IDIC), a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is conducting this raffle under Washington State Gambling Commission License #02-20744 to raise funds for ongoing charitable purposes. The Rules and Regulations of the IDIC Raffle are set forth below. By purchasing a raffle ticket the purchaser agrees to be bound by these rules and regulations. IDIC's interpretation and application of the rules and regulations shall be final.
The Grand Prizes Drawing will be held on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 5:30 pm at the Beacon United Methodist Church community hall, 7301 Beacon Avenue South, Seattle, WA. 98108 or at any other fitting venue to conduct such an event as determined and set by IDIC. An independent raffle auditor will supervise the drawing of all prizes which will be open to the public. Winners do not need to be present to win.
Chances of winning are based on number of tickets sold. The Grand Prize Winner of the Car assumes all fees, local, state and federal taxes (including but not limited to income taxes based on the value of the Car). Likewise, there are federal taxes and there may be state and/or local tax consequences. These consequences may apply to other prizes as well. IDIC takes no responsibility for any tax liabilities. Consult your tax advisor. This offer is void where prohibited by law, and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
By entering this raffle, entrants accept and agree (1) to be bound by all the rules, limitations and restrictions set forth here and (2) that their names and/or likenesses may be disclosed to and used by the news media and may otherwise be used by IDIC for publicity purposes and in lists of prize winners to be published in area newspapers and announced on the IDIC website. IDIC will provide purchasers all raffle information as required by State laws. Contact IDIC if you have questions.
Each raffle participant releases IDIC, its directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability for injuries, losses or damages of any kind caused by participating or winning any prize or resulting from acceptance, possession, use or misuse of any prize, and each winner agrees to indemnify and hold IDIC harmless from any and all losses, damages, rights, claims and actions of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of participating in the raffle or the winner’s acceptance or use of any prize.
A Ticket costs $2 each. Only one method of payment, one name, and one mailing address are permitted per ticket. Only one eligible person or organization may be entered in the raffle per ticket sold. Division of prize by a group purchasing a ticket in common shall be to the sole responsibility of the person or group named as the holder of record of that ticket, should that ticket be a winner. IDIC reserves the right to reject any entry form that is submitted with payment that does not constitute “good funds.” Defective or physically altered entry forms will immediately be disqualified by IDIC. Prior to the Grand Prize Drawing, IDIC will make a reasonable effort to notify the individual and/or entity that submits such an entry form or one which has been rejected because the check did not clear, that the entry has been rejected by attempting to make contact through the information provided at the time of the ticket purchase. A raffle participant's sole and exclusive remedy for IDIC's breach shall be limited to the return of the purchase price paid for his or her raffle ticket(s). In no event shall IDIC, its directors, officers, employees, agents or representatives be liable to any party for any loss or injuries to earnings, profits or goodwill, or for any incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages of any person or entity whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
