Rules Applicable to All Ticket Holders and All Prizewinners
Organizer will make reasonable efforts to contact prizewinners using information provided on the winning entry form. If a prizewinner does not contact Organizer within fourteen (14) days after the first initial contact notifying the prizewinner of their winnings, then Organizer shall give notice to such prizewinner by U.S. Postal Service certified mail, return receipt requested, at the address set forth in the information provided by the Eligible Ticket Purchaser (“Formal Notice”). This Formal Notice shall state (a) the prize won, (b) a telephone number of a contact person at Organizer, (c) the time and location where the prize(s) can be claimed, and (d) that if the prize has not been claimed within thirty (30) days of the date the notification is given, that the prize may be forfeited, at Organizer’s discretion.
Organizer will not award a prize if the prizewinner (a) was ineligible to purchase a ticket or otherwise enter the Raffle, (b) provided materially false or misleading information to Organizer in connection with the purchase of a Raffle ticket, or (c) if participating in this Raffle or receiving a prize is prohibited with respect to such person pursuant to these Rules or Applicable Law. A Ticket Holder cannot assign or transfer his/her interest in a raffle ticket, or a prize won by a winning raffle ticket, except as may be approved by Organizer and in Organizer’s sole discretion.
As a condition to being eligible to receive a prize, each prizewinner must sign and deliver to Organizer: (a) a sworn affidavit of eligibility under these Rules and Applicable Law and satisfactory proof that he/she is the person named on the winning entry; (b) a correct taxpayer identification number (e.g., social security number, individual taxpayer identification number, or employer identification number), (c) satisfactory proof that the purchaser of the ticket was an Eligible Ticket Purchaser at the time the ticket was purchased; (d) a publicity release, and (e) such other matters as Organizer may reasonably request, such as proof of identification and proof of address to determine authenticity of individual claiming a prize. If the holder of a winning ticket does not provide a correct taxpayer identification number or otherwise comply with Applicable Law and these Rules, then Organizer may, at its option, disallow the award of the prize to such Ticket Holder.
Winners of a Raffle prize authorize Organizer to withhold all required amounts and report the award of Raffle prizes in accordance with Applicable Law. With respect to non-cash prizes exceeding $5,000 in total value, including the prize vehicle, Applicable Law requires that the winner of the prize pay in advance to Organizer 24% of the fair market value of the prize, which Organizer will remit such payment to the IRS. The winner shall also pay in advance any sales tax associated with the prize or any other taxes required by Applicable Law. If the winner does not pay in advance to Organizer the amounts necessary to comply with Applicable Law and these Rules within sixty (60) days of Formal Notice, then, the prize may be forfeited, at Organizer’s sole discretion. Prizewinners must pick up their prizes or arrange for delivery of their prizes and pay in advance all costs associated therewith. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts and therefore do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.
In the event that any prize is forfeited, is not claimed in accordance with these Rules, or if the winner of any prize cannot be located with reasonable diligence within forty-five (45) days from the date of the drawing, the prize shall be awarded by conducting a secondary drawing using the original pool of raffle tickets. In the event of a secondary drawing, Organizer will notify each Ticket Holder, via the email provided, of the date, time, and location of the secondary drawing at least fourteen (14) days in advance thereof.
Each Eligible Ticket Purchaser and/or Ticket Holder agrees their name, likeness, voice and city of residence may be recorded by audio, video, or digital means and may be used in any print, audio or visual media without notice or compensation for any purpose including related to this Raffle or any other promotional purposes of Organizer.
Each Eligible Ticket Purchaser and/or Ticket Holder (a) agrees Organizer, Topeka Community Foundation, Raffle Auditor, and their directors, officers, employees, agents, and representatives, are not responsible for any injuries, losses, or damages of any kind arising in connection with, or as a result of, this Raffle and/or that person’s failure to win or redeem any prize, or that person’s award of, acceptance of, or use of, any prize; and (b) releases and agrees to indemnify, defend, protect, and hold harmless Organizer, Topeka Community Foundation, Raffle Auditor, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, advertising agency, contractors, insurers, attorneys, accountants, and affiliated entities from and against all losses, damages, rights, claims, and actions of any kind arising in connection with, or as a result of, this Raffle and/or that person’s failure to win or redeem any prize, or that person’s award of, acceptance of, or use of any prize, or that person’s failure to comply with Applicable Law; and (c) represents and warrants to Organizer that they have read and understand these Rules and agree to be bound by these Rules and Organizer’s decisions, which are final.
The Kanas Department of Revenue (KDOR) is the regulatory authority with jurisdiction over charitable gaming. If and to the extent KDOR expressly deems a specific dispute between Organizer and person purchasing or holding a ticket outside of KDOR’s authority, the Organizer and that person agree that if there is a dispute of any kind regarding the award of a prize or the conduct of the Raffle, Organizer and all persons purchasing or holding a ticket agree to arbitrate such dispute. Such dispute shall be decided by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect and shall be governed by the United States Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). While such arbitration is pending, Organizer, in its sole and absolute discretion, may deposit the prize with the then Clerk, or acting Clerk, of the District Court of the County of Shawnee, State of Kansas, interplead the parties hereto, and upon so depositing such prize and filing its complaint in interpleader it shall be relieved of all liability under the terms hereof as to the property so deposited. By the purchase of a ticket, all persons purchasing or holding a ticket (a) do submit themselves to the jurisdiction of said court and appoint the then Clerk, or acting Clerk, of said court as their Agent for the service of all process in connection with such proceedings and consent to the arbitration of disputes between them.
