Quarter Auction: How  does it work?
17th Annual Western Auction
Quarter Auction All-In Bidders
 
For $30.00 you can go All-In on the Quarter Auction.  This means that you will receive a paddle # that identifies you as an All-In bidder during the Quarter Auction.  When the time arrives you won't need quarters to bid on these items -- your paddle # takes care of it all.  So, every time your paddle # is called during the Quarter Auction, you will win that item automatically.  This increases your odds to win more prizes.
 
Auctioneers automatically know a bidder is All-In by looking at their paddle (the ping pong ball matches a line under the number).  When they see it they know you are a winner.  But, you still need to pay attention during the process to make sure to raise your paddle when your number is called, but the winning is automatic!
 
Hope everyone goes All-In on Sat., Oct. 29, 2016 at the 17th Annual Western Auction!

To purchase a raffle ticket and be eligible for any Prize, the purchaser must be a business entity or a person 18 years or older at the time of purchasing the ticket.  A person purchasing a ticket on behalf of a business entity must be 18 years or older at the time of purchasing the ticket, and, by purchasing the ticket, certifies that he or she has the entity’s authority to purchase the ticket. 
 
Purchases must be made by cash or check.  Checks will be negotiated prior to the drawing.  If a check is returned for insufficient funds, the purchaser’s raffle ticket will not be entered in the drawing unless proper payment is made prior to the drawing.
 
At the time of purchase, purchasers will provide their contact information (address and phone number) and will receive a raffle ticket and a copy of these “Raffle Rules and Regulations.”  The raffle ticket issued to the purchaser is the only proof that the purchaser will receive of entry into the raffle; purchasers will not receive any other confirmation or verification of entry.  The Grand Canyon Rotary Club, its board members, officers, members, employees, volunteers, and representatives are not responsible for lost, stolen, damaged, or defaced raffle tickets.
 
Compliance with the “Raffle Rules and Regulations” is a condition of entry into the raffle and winning the prize.  By purchasing a raffle ticket, the purchaser agrees to be bound by the “Raffle Rules and Regulations.”
 
Drawing:
 
No more than 1,000 raffle tickets will be sold at $20.00 per ticket.  The winning ticket will be drawn on October 25, 2014 at the Williams Rotary Western Auction.  A person designated by the Willims Rotary Club will conduct the drawing.  All winning tickets will be drawn in order from the lowest prize amount to the highest prize amount. After all winners have been announced two alternative tickets will be drawn as explained in the next section, Claiming the Prize.
 
Claiming the Prize:
 
The prize winners do not need to be present at the drawing to win.  If prize winners are not present at the drawing, the Williams Rotary Club will attempt to contact the prize winner at the address or phone number that the prize winner provided.  In any event, the prize winner must claim the prize within fourteen (14) business days of the drawing.  In order to claim and accept the prize, the prize winner, if not known by the Williams Rotary Club, must present the winning raffle ticket, government issued identification and a valid social security number.  The ticket must be an original (not a photocopy) and must be in sufficiently good condition to determine whether it is, in fact, the winning ticket.
 
If the prize winner does not claim and accept the prize in accordance with the foregoing rules, the prize will be awarded to the first alternative ticket holder.  If the first alternative ticket holder does not claim the prize in accordance with the foregoing rules, the prize will be awarded to the second alternative ticket holder.  If the second alternative ticket holder does not claim the prize in accordance with the foregoing rules, the prize may be cancelled.
 
Privacy:
 
By purchasing a ticket, purchasers grant permission to the Williams Rotary Club to use the purchaser’s name and image (and in the case of business entities, the name(s) and image(s) of the entities’ owners, directors, and officers) in connection with advertising and promotions, without further notice, consent, or compensation.
 
Laws and Regulations:
 
By purchasing a ticket, purchasers acknowledge that the raffle, prize, and use of the prize are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, with which the purchaser shall comply.

The Williams Rotary Club, its board members, officers, members, employees, volunteers, and representatives are not responsible for providing tax or legal advice to purchasers and purchasers shall not seek or rely on any such advice.  According to the Internal Revenue Service, amounts paid for participating in raffles are not gifts and therefore the price of entry into the raffle does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.  By purchasing a ticket, purchasers acknowledge that they are ultimately responsible for any and all federal, state, and local taxes, other charges, and tax ramifications associated with participating in the raffle and/or winning the prize, including without limitation withholdings on prizes that have certain specified values.  The value of the prize is considered taxable income to the winner.  Additionally, the prize is subject to withholdings in the amount of the value of the prize minus the $20.00 cost of the raffle ticket.
