We are doing a charity raffle for the Skyway Skirmish @FirstFlight Major this weekend. The raffle drawing will start on Friday at 2pm. I’ll post the video of the wheel of names and you’ll have 20 minutes to pick your prize. After the 20 minutes I’ll spin for another name. If you miss your 20 minute window you can pick after the next person is drawn and picks.
You do not have to be present to win! Anyone and everyone is welcome to enter!
Tickets are $5 each and all proceeds will be donated to The First Tee of the Triangle LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program. As a father of an 8 year old daughter, I’ve realized it’s harder to get them in to golf when they are the only girl at the range or in lessons or golf camps so the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program provides girls-only events to get them involved.
I’m still accepting donations for the raffle and tickets can be purchased up until noon on Friday. Once your name is drawn, it will be removed to allow for more people to have an opportunity to win something.
I thought about doing it that way but I like giving people the chance to pick what they want. Some of the prizes might have a limited number of people who can pick them and I feel like it would suck to get assigned something you can’t use. And unfortunately once you allow someone to pick their prize, there has to be a time limit.
And it seems like all or most of the raffles do it this way so there is also the element of keeping with the norms.
Unfortunately thats the downside to doing it this way.
Trust me, I very much considered drawing a prize and drawing a name because it makes it easier on me. I was hoping that by not doing a zoom call and taking up 3+ hours of people’s Friday night and allowing 20 minutes to make a selection would be easier.
If you’d like to designate a proxy to make your selection for you, I’m all for it.
