Raffle Drawing Process:

On August 2nd, the raffle drawing will be held at this event and the winner announced.  Raffle ticket purchasers are welcome to purchase tickets to the Student Send-Off to view the drawing.  The winner, if not in attendance, will be notified soon after.

Each raffle ticket purchase will receive a number.  Raffle ticket purchasers will be notified by email of each of their raffle ticket numbers as they purchase raffle tickets.  Those numbers will be written on poker chips.  All poker chips will be deposited into an opaque container and shaken vigorously.  A person independent from the Notre Dame Club of Austin will blindly reach into the container and retrieve a single poker chip – this is the winning chip.

Similar to how the first chip was retrieved, a second chip will then blindly be retrieved from the container – this is a backup chip in the event that the owner of the winning chip cannot be contacted.  If the winning chip owner cannot be contacted by August 19th (approximately three weeks from the end of the raffle), then the prize will be forfeited to the backup chip owner.
