How does a Batons Up Fundraiser work?

A Batons Up is a raffle prize draw event where tickets are sold at $20 each and every ticket is re-entered into every draw.

  • Each ticket will be re-entered into every prize draw
  • A full prize list will be advertised prior to the event and at the event itself
  • All tickets will be drawn during the event and the winning number will be noted by a draw official
  • When a person’s ticket number is drawn the winner will then go up to the prize table where there will be a selection of numbered envelopes
  • Each envelope holds a written card that details what prize they have won
  • The winner will then selec
    t an envelope number which is then passed to the MC
  • The MC will then announce the winner and what that person has won
  • The MC will then ensure the winners ticket is returned to the raffle barrel before the new draw is made
  • A new raffle ticket number will be drawn and will continue until all prizes have been drawnbatonsup2016SaveTheDate
