Riders 50/50 Raffle Official Rules

Official Rules

Official Rules: By participating in the Riders 5050 Raffle ("Raffle"), each participant ("Entrant") agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and by the decisions of the RoughRiders Foundation ("Foundation" or "Sponsor"), and these Official Rules shall be binding and final as to all matters related to the 5050 Raffle. The 5050 Raffle is subject to all applicable federal, state and local and municipal laws and regulations. Some restrictions apply. Void wherever prohibited or restricted by law.

Eligibility: The 5050 Raffle is open to all Frisco RoughRiders ticket holders age eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry. Employees, family members (defined as parents, spouses, children, siblings, grandparents, and their respective spouses) or those cohabiting (whether related or not) with Executives, Officers, Senior Management, or Directors of the RoughRiders Foundation ("Foundation"), the Frisco RoughRiders Baseball Club ("RoughRiders"), Professional Sports Catering, or Raffle staff members shall be ineligible for the 5050 Raffle.

Sponsor: RoughRiders Foundation, 7300 RoughRiders Trail, Frisco, Texas 75034. Non-profit Tax ID Ticket 51-0479927.

How to Enter: Official 5050 Raffle tickets ("Tickets") will be available for purchase in-person at Dr Pepper Ballpark ("Ballpark") with the physical address of 7300 RoughRiders Trail, Frisco, Texas 75034 at every Frisco RoughRiders home game from the time the gates open to the public, concluding at the end of the sixth inning ("Raffle Period") provided, however if a game does not start on time, or is delayed during the first two (2) innings, Tickets will be sold for a minimum of three (3) hours from the time stadium gates open.

You may enter the 5050 Raffle by purchasing Tickets for: Three (3) Tickets for Five Dollars ($5.00), Ten (15) Tickets for Ten Dollars ($10.00), or Forty (40) Tickets for Twenty Dollars ($20.00) from designated RoughRiders Foundation representatives stationed at Riders Outpost - located by the Home Plate Entrance and via roaming sellers throughout the stadium. Tickets may be purchased with cash (United States Dollars) and debit cards at select locations. No discounts or complimentary Tickets will be provided. If a person does not have an admission ticket to a particular game, a Ticket may be requested during the Entry Period at the entrance to Home Plate Gate. Each Ticket is a receipt for Entrant's purchase and represents an entry in the 5050 Raffle for that game and is not eligible for any past or future 5050 Raffle drawings. There is no limit to the number of Tickets an Entrant may purchase. All Ticket purchases are final, no refunds or replacements will be issued.

5050 Raffle Tickets are Not Tax Deductible: The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries, or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.

Drawing: Every transaction is electronically tallied. The running total from the 5050 Raffle sales will be periodically displayed and updated on a ribbon board inside the seating bowl. One (1) 5050 Raffle winning Ticket number ("Winning Ticket") will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received as of the conclusion of the Entry Period ("Drawing"). The Drawing will be held during the end of the seventh inning. In the event of a weather delay, the 5050 Foundation may, in its sole discretion, modify any pre-determined schedule with respect to the 5050 Raffle Period and/or the Drawing. All Drawings will be conducted by the RoughRiders Foundation.

The Winning Ticket will be announced over the Stadium's Public Address System and posted at the Riders Outpost Kiosks by the end of the seventh inning. The Winning Ticket will also be listed online at www.ridersbaseball.com/5050raffle. Entrants do not need to be present to win.

Prize: There will be a maximum of one (1) Winning Ticket selected during each Drawing. The holder of the Winning Ticket of each Drawing (the "Official Winner"), will be subject to the Official Rules, and will be awarded fifty percent (50%) of the net 5050 Raffle sales of that applicable game ("Prize"), less any and all applicable taxes or fees. The remaining proceeds shall be retained by the RoughRiders Foundation, a 501(c) (3) charity, and the programs that the RoughRiders Foundation supports in its sole discretion. Although applicable taxes are withheld, each Official Winner assumes all responsibility for any state, county, or federal taxes, fees and withholdings. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time each Prize is claimed will be followed. No substitution of Prizes will be allowed for any potential Official Winner. Prizes will not be split amongst various parties. Any unclaimed Prize will be retained by the RoughRiders Foundation for charitable purposes.

Odds: The odds of winning the Prize are 1/the total number of Tickets of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.

Notifications: All Prize claims must be made within ten (10) calendar days of the applicable 5050 Raffle Drawing date ("Claims Period"). The Winning Ticket must be presented in person to the 5050 Raffle staff member kiosk outside the Riders Outpost near the Home Plate entrance during a game, or presented to a RoughRiders Foundation representative during normal business hours (Monday - Thursday 9:00am - 5:00pm; Friday 9:00a-4:30pm). Office address: 7300 RoughRiders Trail, Frisco, Texas 75034. Should the thirtieth day fall on a Saturday, Sunday or recognized holiday, then the Claims Period shall be extended to the immediately following business day. Any transportation required for the Official Winner to submit a Winning Ticket shall be the Official Winner's sole responsibility and will not be furnished by the RoughRiders Foundation. The Official Winner must provide the RoughRiders Foundation with all information required to claim the Prize (including tax identification). The RoughRiders Foundation has no obligation to contact potential winners.

The Official Winner will receive an Affidavit, Prize Claim, Release and tax forms which must be executed and returned to the RoughRiders Foundation no later than five (5) business days after his/her receipt of applicable forms. Prizes will be sent to the Official Winner's mailing address via check within four (4) to six (6) weeks after the receipt of the Winning Ticket and applicable forms. No cash payments will be made.

Official Winners will be subject to the applicable IRS rules, regulations, and guidelines. The RoughRiders Foundation will complete and file IRS form W-2G and withhold federal income tax of 28% from the Official Winner's proceeds in accordance with IRS rules, regulations, and guidelines for prizes at $600.00 and above. Official Winners who are non-resident aliens for tax purposes will be subject to all applicable withholding and reporting requirements. Official Winners may waive the right to receive a Prize, at which time the Prize from that Drawing date will be forfeited and proceeds will be reclaimed by the RoughRiders Foundation for charitable use.

In the event that an Official Winner: (a) does not notify the RoughRiders Foundation within ten (10) calendar days of the Drawing; (b) is ruled ineligible for any reason; (c) refuses the Prize; or (d) does not return all of the required forms, the Prize will be forfeited and will be retained by the RoughRiders Foundation for charitable use. In the unlikely event that an error or problem in the administration of a 5050 Raffle results in more than one Entrant holding a Winning Ticket, the person holding the Ticket that was purchased the earliest shall be deemed the Official Winner.  

Transfer of Raffle Ticket: Entrants may opt to give away their 5050 Raffle Tickets to another eligible person, but in doing so the Entrant waives any claim he/she might otherwise have to the Prize. Entrants may not re-sell their Tickets to other parties, and may not knowingly give Raffle Tickets away to another for the purpose of allowing those other parties to re-sell such Raffle Tickets. All 5050 Raffle Tickets which have been resold in violation of these Official Rules shall be void. All individuals who re-sell, purchase, or receive 5050 Raffle Tickets in violation of these Official Rules shall be ineligible to participate in the 5050 Raffle or to win a Prize. Transferred Prizes shall be bound by all the terms and conditions of these Official Rules.
