Q. What payment methods are accepted?

A. Cash, personal checks, or money orders made payable to "PUUC" with "Raffle" written in the memo line.

 

Q. Is it mandatory to participate?

A. It is not mandatory, but we are asking each member to talk about the Raffle with everyone! The tickets tend to sell themselves. If we sell all 1000 tickets, we will not need any other fundraisers this year. However, we will likely continue with organizing fun ones like The Holiday Stroll and Spring Auction.

 

Q. I've sold all my tickets and I need more. What do I do?

A. First, pat yourself on the back for a job well done! Then text or call Debbie Bruchez at (917) 833-6365 or Jill Shaffer Hammond at (603) 547-0715 or send an email request to DinnerAnywhere@UUPeterborough.org to turn in your sold ticket stubs and monies. We will then issue you another batch of tickets. When turning in your packets, please be sure it is clear which payments go with which ticket stubs.

 

Q. When do the tickets have to be turned in? Where do I bring them?

A. Optimally, you will turn in your sold tickets to Debbie Bruchez or Jill Shaffer Hammond or Vanessa Amsbury-Bonilla as soon as you have sold each packet. This gives us the ability to track our progress. Final deadline to turn in sold ticket packets is Tuesday, September 6, 2022.

 

Q. When is the Raffle drawing?

A. After Sunday Service, September 11, 2022 at 11:30. The winner does not need to be present to win.

 

Q. I'm selling my tickets to someone who lives in another state. How do I get the tickets to them?

A. Please hold on to their tickets for them. Sign the tickets on their behalf (so you know it's their tickets). If possible, take a picture of the completed stubs and email/text the photo to them as proof of purchase. Do not send tickets through the U.S. Mail as it is illegal to do so.

 

Q. Anything else I should know?

A. Fill in the tickets as completely as you can. Name and phone number are the most important information! We want to be able to call the winner right away if they are not present at the drawing.
