Good luck with this, but do be sure to check out the local/state laws regarding holding a raffle. I was talking to our principal yesterday and he mentioned some schools in our area (Texas) held raffles as fundraisers and later found out it was illegally handled.

It's probably controlled by whatever state entity monitors sales tax, gaming, and/or lottery.

Good Luck!!

Hi again>>>We sent home a book of tickets home with each student with an information note. We asked that any parent who wanted more to send in a note. We would send them however mant books they needed. Because this was my first major event I wanted to make sure everything was accounted for. What I did was....when I got the stubs back I made sure that the selling child's name and room # was on the back of each ticket. I also wrote down on a list the name of the child and how many tickets they sold... The kids did all of the delivering of stubs and money. We purchased our computer up front because the local computer stores (Best Buy and Sears) had already chosen there sponser school for that year. You may want to check with your local stores. As an incentive to get them to donate or give you a reduced price suggest that you will have their store name printed directly on each raffle ticket. Good Advertising for them. I hope yours goes well>>>if you want a complete cost breakdown of our raffle just e-mail me and I'll send it to you:)
