Welcome to Sagamore’s 2021 50/50 Reverse Raffle!
As you know we are in the process of completing the first phase of the dining room renovation. The second phase will be the purchase of new furniture, which includes new dining tables and chairs and new furniture for our sitting area and foyer. We are fortunate that the club is in a good financial position to be able to complete the biggest part of the renovation without dipping into the reserves, but we hope we can count on your support to help us with the new furnishings to complete the final look. Our designer has created two vision boards of the selected furnishings you can see here.
For those of you who have attended our past 50/50 raffles, you will remember what fun they are! This year you will be able to buy tickets through this website, or in person at the bar, that will enter you into the reverse raffle party scheduled for Saturday, June 5th. The money collected, along with the $7800 we raised in the 2019 raffle, will assist us in completing the second phase of the renovation we have long been looking forward to. And bonus, a lucky few will walk away with what we hope will be a sizable cash prize!
Here’s how it works: You can purchase tickets on this website through Stripe, a secure online card processing system. Your name will automatically be entered into the raffle pool. Or, you can purchase tickets in person at the bar and we will manually enter your info into the system. When it’s time for the drawing we will print out all the tickets and enter them into the raffle. The difference between a regular raffle and a reverse raffle, is in a reverse raffle the winner is the last ticket to be drawn and will take home 50% of the money raised! Once we get down to the last few tickets, those participants can then wheel and deal with each other on if they want to keep going or split the pool between themselves. This is the fun part of the gamble!
Ticket prices are as follows: There is no limit to the amount of tickets you can buy. Remember, the more tickets we sell, the bigger the cash prize!
1 ticket for $100
3 tickets for $200
7 tickets for $400
10 tickets for $600
You can also see the progress of the money raised through this website, so be sure to check back from time to time to see how we are doing in our fundraising efforts.
Your support not only will help us complete the look of our beautiful new dining and sitting area, but will allow us to continue with the necessary yearly improvements while keeping dues low and our financials strong for expected and unexpected expenditures.
