Raffles/Fundraisers

Overview

Due to the loss of our annual Lenten Fish Frys due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fairmount has started to hold regular raffles. Raffles are announced on our Facebook Page and through our mailing list. Tickets are sold through our Square Site. Typically, we run our raffles utilizing the Sure Tip raffle system.


Sure Tip Board

A ‘SureTip’ board is a raffle board in which every ticket or “tip” has a chance to win. The construction of the game consists of a semi-ridged cardboard base, (or backing in which all information and tickets are placed) a specific number of tickets which are folded and banded to hide a previously printed number are glued in rows on the base. Printed at the top of the base is the name of the game, (which denotes the number of tickets) the winning number which is covered by a seal, and a serial number which matches the serial number printed on the ticket (or tip).

On the back of the base you will find on most games a numbered line for each number that is revealed on the tickets. Raffle ticket purchaser information from our Square site is transcribed on the line which matches the number on their ticket. Each raffle ticket purchased is pulled in sequential order that they were purchased. When the winning number is revealed, the raffle announcer will match the winning number to the corresponding line number on the back of the card. The winner is announced live and notified by phone.

We typically only perform 200 and 300 ticket raffles. Raffles are closed once all of the tickets have been sold and a Facebook Live event is scheduled typically for the following day at 6 PM. Winner(s) are contacted to arrange pickup of the prize or shipping if offered.

Winner(s) must pickup or arrange shipping of prizes within 30 days of the raffle winner announcement. Prizes not picked up within the 30 days will go back to the fire department for re-raffle. All winners are required to meet age restrictions to win such as 18 or older for normal prizes and 21 and over for prizes that involve alcohol or tobacco products.
