Honestly, I'm not sure yet.

The guys putting it together are talking about $5 raffle tickets since we've got some really great prizes lined up (a winch, some high dollar gift certificates, air compressor, etc...).

I'm trying to talk them into keeping the tickets at $1 each. We don't raise as much money, but hopefully they stay within eveyrbody's affordable price range.

The reason I ask about the tickets is because we just had a meet & greet here in San Antonio and one ticket was $10, 3 for $20, or $50 for a so called "super ticket". This was the main reason for me not going. Noone has done up a post event or even said how much money was taken in. The money was said to be going to the Fratt Chapter (why???) and up to Austin to "fight the cause". I can see a dollar or even five dollars a ticket but $10 is way outside the ball park and $50, I'm not even going there.

Quite frankly, I find that kind of raffle cost a little absurd unless it was for a really, really good cause (friend in accident, out of work, need help with hospital bills, etc...) and/or the prizes are worth it (car/truck, guns, tool set, etc...)

I've always found that when the raffle tickets are cheap, you tend to sell more. For example when the raffle tickets are $5, someone will buy $20 worth (4 tickets). The chances of them returning to buy an additional $20 worth are slim because that's perceived as a $20 bill in their mind. If the tickets were $1 each, someone will buy $20 worth. Half an hour later they think well I'll get a few more since they're only a $1 so they buy $5 more, then $5 more later, etc... The perception is that the tickets are cheap so they can afford it more readily.

I've personally been to fundraisers where I've seen people end up with $200 worth or more of $1 tickets. If those same tickets were $20 each , I doubt they would have bought more than 2. Even the big spenders wouldn't buy more than 4 because in their mind it was perceived as a $100 instead of a bunch of cheap tickets.

By the way, our proceeds will go towards the Sunshine Kids Foundation. It's a charity that Hooter's supports. We wanted to give back to the community and show Hooter's that we appreciated their hospitality at the same time.

I'm thinking about coming to the event. It is about 2 hours away from where I live. So, I just want to make sure that there is adaquate parking for a tow vehicle and trailer. My OHV is not street legal. Sounds like fun!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Don,

Bring the Orange Crush on over. Should be a good time for you.

This Hooter's is in the parking lot of a giant shopping complex across the freewat from a mall. We'll find room for the tow rig and trailer. Don't worry about that.
