Official B.I.G. (Brain Injury Gala) Golden Ticket Raffle Rules & Regulations:

The Brain Injury Alliance of Washington, a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is conducting this raffle pursuant to SB 5723, Washington Administrative Code 230-03-152, to raise funds for ongoing charitable purposes. The Rules and Regulations of the BIAWA raffle are set forth below. By purchasing a raffle ticket, the purchaser agrees to be bound by these rules and regulations. BIAWA’s interpretation and application of the rules and regulations shall be final.

The Drawing for the B.I.G. (Brain Injury Gala) Event Golden Ticket Raffle will be held on November 6, 2021 at 1900 5th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101. Phone, fax, or mail in tickets will not be sold after November 2, 2021. Tickets may sell out before that time. An independent raffle auditor will supervise the drawing. The drawing for prizes will be available to B.I.G. Gala attendees only, and they MUST be present virtually or in-person to win.

Only 125 tickets will be sold. The chances of winning are based on that number. If fewer tickets are sold, the chances of winning improve. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts, and consequently do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.

The Golden Ticket Winner assumes all fees, local, state and federal taxes (including but not limited to income taxes based on the value of the prize). BIAWA takes no responsibility for any tax liabilities. Consult your tax advisor. This offer is void where prohibited by law, and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.

By entering this raffle, entrants accept and agree (1) to be bound by all the rules, limitations and restrictions set forth here and (2) that their names and/or likenesses may be disclosed to and used by the news media and may otherwise be used by BIAWA for publicity purposes and in lists of prize winners to be published in area newspapers and announced on the BIAWA raffle website. BIAWA will provide purchasers all raffle information as required by WAC 230-11-015. Other rules and regulations may apply. Please contact BIAWA if you have questions. BIAWA’s interpretation and application of the rules and regulations shall be final.

By entering this raffle, each participant releases BIAWA, its directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability for injuries, losses or damages of any kind caused by participating in the raffle or winning any prize or resulting from acceptance, possession, use or misuse of any prize, and each winner agrees to indemnify and hold BIAWA harmless from any and all losses, damages, rights, claims and actions of any kind rising in connection with or as a result of participating in the raffle or the winner’s acceptance or use of any prize.

Tickets:

Tickets are $125 each. Only one method of payment, one name, and one mailing address are permitted per ticket. Only one eligible person may be entered in the raffle per ticket sold. If the name of more than one person is submitted with a ticket purchase, and that ticket is selected as a winning ticket, then the person named first will be deemed the holder of record of that ticket and declared the winner regardless of who paid for the ticket. Division of prize by a group purchasing a ticket in common shall be to the sole responsibility of the person named as the holder of record of that ticket, should that ticket be selected as a winner.

Deadline for tickets
purchased by phone, fax or mail is November 2, 2021. Tickets may also be purchased in-person by event attendees at on November 6, 2021. Drawing date: November 6, 2021.

BIAWA reserves the right to reject any entry form that is submitted with payment that does not constitute “good funds.” All defective or physically altered entry forms will be immediately disqualified by BIAWA. Prior to the drawing, BIAWA will make a reasonable effort to notify the individual that submits such an entry form or one which has been rejected because the credit card or check did not clear that the entry has been rejected by attempting to make contact through the information provided at the time of submitting the purchase request. All phone, fax or mailed orders for tickets must be received and/or purchased by the indicated deadline. BIAWA assumes no responsibility for lost, late, misdirected or non-delivered mail or fax messages, or any other failure to receive orders or deliver receipts prior to the drawing deadline.

A raffle participant’s sole and exclusive remedy for BIAWA’s breach shall be limited to the return of the purchase price paid for his or her raffle ticket(s). In no event shall BIAWA, its directors, officers, employees, agents or representatives be liable to any party for any loss or injuries to earnings, profits or goodwill, or for any incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages of any person or entity whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
