Please read these Official Terms and Conditions before entering
this fundraising Raffle ("Raffle") organized by the Saint Joseph County Sheriff's Posse,
Inc. ("POSSE"), a 501(c)(3) organization. By purchasing a Raffle ticket, you agree to
be bound by these Official Terms and Conditions and represent that you satisfy all of the eligibility
requirements below. By purchasing a Raffle ticket, you also agree that decisions made by POSSE
as to how to award Raffle prizes are final and binding, and not subject to review or appeal.
This Raffle is subject to all applicable Federal, State, and local laws.
1. Eligibility. The Raffle is open only to those who purchase a Raffle ticket and who are
at least 18 years old at the time of entry. The Raffle is open to the legal residents of the
Continental United States and is void where prohibited by law. Employees of POSSE, members of
POSSE, and officers of POSSE are not eligible to participate in the Raffle. IF YOU DO NOT MEET
ANY OF THESE REQUIREMENTS, OR ANY OTHER ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IN THESE OFFICIAL TERMS AND
CONDITIONS, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO WIN A RAFFLE PRIZE, AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A PRIZE, EVEN
IF YOUR TICKET IS DRAWN. The Raffle is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws
and regulations. Void where prohibited.
2. Tickets. Raffle tickets for entry into the drawing may be purchased in person from employees or
officers of POSSE or from participating locations. Each purchased Raffle ticket is eligible to win one prize.
If a winning ticket holder for a firearm is unable to pass a NICS background check or is otherwise determined
to be ineligible, the prize they selected will be awarded to a new winner drawn from the drawing pool at a
later date. An ineligible ticket holder may not claim the prize described in Section 4 of these Terms and Conditions,
due to ineligibility. DO NOT PURCHASE A RAFFLE TICKET IF YOU ARE INELIGIBLE, BY FEDERAL OR STATE LAW, TO OWN,
POSSESS, OR PURCHASE A FIREARM. YOUR TICKET MAY BE DRAWN FOR A FIREARM PRIZE CERTIFICATE. INELIGIBLE ENTRANTS
WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND FOR THEIR TICKET COST.
3. Drawing. The Raffle Drawing will occur on October 2, 2019, at POSSE's building.
You need not be present to win.
4. Prizes. At the drawing, three winning Raffle tickets will be selected sequentially via a random draw from all eligible Raffle tickets to each receive a certificate for the prize listed for that draw. The prize value will vary, from $200 to over $500. If a winner of a firearm certificate is ineligible to receive a firearm, their ticket will be withdrawn as stated in Section 2, and the price of their ticket will not be refunded to them. You must be 21 years or older to redeem a prize certificate for a handgun, so no one under the age of 21 may win a prize certificate for a handgun, unless they provide proof that a parent will redeem the handgun prize certificate on their behalf. A person who wins a firearm certificate but is ineligible to receive a firearm will not receive any sort of alternative prize, and the prize certificate they were awarded will be redrawn for in a subsequent Raffle drawing held at the discretion of POSSE. DO NOT PURCHASE A RAFFLE TICKET IF YOU ARE INELIGIBLE, BY FEDERAL OR STATE LAW, TO OWN, POSSESS, OR PURCHASE A FIREARM.
YOU NEED NOT BE PRESENT TO WIN.
Notification of prize win will be made by POSSE in person if the winner is present, or by
telephone and e-mail, using the information provided by Raffle entrant on the winning Raffle ticket.
Winners must pick up their prize certificate within 96 hours of notification of the prize win by POSSE.
If unable to do so, Winners MUST contact POSSE within 96 hours of the prize win notification to make
alternate arrangements for the receipt of the prize certificate. Winners who fail to notify POSSE or
pick up their prize certificate within 96 hours of the prize win notification will forfeit their prize
winnings, and the prize certificate shall be redrawn for in a subsequent Raffle drawing held at the discretion of POSSE.
