What is the NVE5 50/50 Raffle? Simply put, it's a chance to win half of the net proceeds raised from ticket sales. Each prize is cash and the amount depends upon the number of 50/50 Raffle tickets sold. The more who participate, the larger the cash prize. For each $15,000 in tickets sold, a random drawing will occur.

By entering the 50/50 Raffle, participants agree to abide by all the terms of these Official Rules.

RANDOM DRAWING - MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN!
At the time of purchase, a duplicate (i.e., half) of each ticket will be collected and placed in a collection box. A winning ticket will be randomly and physically drawn from the collection box during the final farewell dinner on Saturday, September 9, 2023, at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort located at 3225 Broadmoor Valley Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80906. The winning ticket will be selected only from those participants that purchased a 50/50 Raffle ticket during the Raffle Period.
Winner will have twenty (20) minutes from announcement to redeem. The winner must claim their prize within the specified time period or noncompliance with these Official Rules may result in a disqualification and prize forfeiture. If a winner has not claimed the prize within twenty (20) minutes of announcing the winner, the winner’s eligibility will be forfeited, and another ticket will be physically drawn from the collection box according to the same terms. Best efforts will be made to verify a winner before a prize is considered forefeited.
For each jackpot that reaches $15,000 in gross ticket sales, one (1) winner will receive a cash prize of half of the net proceeds. The net proceeds are the gross pool minus fees and operating costs. The remaining half of the net proceeds will benefit the VOA and select charities.
The cash prize will be paid to the winner in cash or via check, as preferred by the winner.
