official raffle rules
The “BFC 2023 Raffle” (the Raffle) is being conducted by The Friends of the Fort Collins Bicycle Program, Inc., dba Bike Fort Collins (“BFC”), a 501(c)(3) Colorado nonprofit corporation and tax-exempt entity. Net proceeds* from the Raffle will be directed towards BFC’s ongoing bicycle advocacy and bicycle education activities. Bike Fort Collins has established Official Raffle Rules governing the administration of the Raffle, the awarding of prize, and participation in the Raffle. Any person who buys or holds a Raffle entry/ticket (an “Entry Buyer” or “Entry Holder”) agrees to follow and be bound by BFC’s Raffle Rules and BFC’s interpretation and application of them. All of BFC’s and its Games Manager’s rulings relative to interpretation or application of the Rules are final. The Prize Drawing for the Raffle will take place on July 15, 2023 at approximately 10:15 p.m. (the “Drawing Date”). The final entry purchase deadline for entries is July 15, 2023 at 10:00 p.m. (the “Entry Purchase Deadline”).
*Net Proceeds are defined as the gross proceeds from entries/tickets sales received by BFC less the payment required to secure any/all prizes (whether or not claimed or awarded in the Raffle), as well as all other Raffle-related expenses as determined by BFC.
Raffle Entry/Ticket Cost Information:
Raffle entries can be purchased as follows:
• 10 entries for $10
• 30 entries for $25
• 75 entries for $50
• 200 entries for $100
• 500 entries for $200
Eligible Entry Buyers must be U.S. residents (living in the United States) and at least 18 years old at the time of purchase and not be prohibited by Federal law, Colorado law, or the law of the state in which they reside from holding or purchasing an entry/ticket or participating in the Raffle. If a ticket is purchased by an Eligible Entry Buyer who gifts or assigns the entry/ticket to another person (“Entry Holder”), then that person must be a U.S. resident (living in the United States) and at least 18 years old at the time of purchase and not be prohibited by Federal or Colorado state law from holding or purchasing an entry/ticket or participating in the Raffle.
BFC reserves the right to require proof of the eligibility of an Entry Buyer at any time and to void any ticket sold to a person who does not meet the eligibility requirements or who is precluded by law from holding an entry/ticket or participating in the Raffle.
Only one eligible person may purchase each entries transaction. Thus, only one Entry Buyer can be the official purchaser of each entry/ticket or pack entries/tickets. An Eligible Entry Buyer may gift or assign another eligible person to an entry/ticket by listing them on the entry/ticket as well (“Entry Holder”). If an entry/ticket does name more than one person on the ticket and that ticket is drawn as the winning entry, BFC will consider the first person named on the entry/ticket to be the winner. Subsequently, the associated prize will be awarded to that name/person. It will be up to the first person named on the ticket to split, share or divvy the prize. Following the awarding and release of the prize, BFC will have no other obligation or involvement relative to the prize, and no other named persons on the ticket may make claims for the prize.
Raffle entries may be purchased by Eligible Entry Buyers online at https://bikefortcollins.rallyup.com/bfc-2023-raffle/. The entry process requires Eligible Entry Buyers to provide their name, address, phone number, credit card number, credit card security code and expiration date, and such other information as BFC may require. Receipts for entries/tickets will be distributed and entry numbers will be assigned in the order that payment is received. All payments will be deposited into a separate and dedicated bank account upon receipt.
Unofficial receipts for entries/tickets that are purchased will be emailed to Entry Buyers. Hard copies of receipts or official entries/tickets will be available upon request. However, it is not required for an Entry Buyer or Entry Holder to physically possess a hard copy of the entry/ticket or receipt to win a prize. Entry Buyers and Entry Holders need not be present at the drawing on the Drawing Date to win.
All entry/ticket sales associated with this Raffle are final. BFC will only make refunds if somehow the online platform it is using (Rallyup.com)(“Raffle Website”) errantly enabled an Entry Buyer to purchase the entries after the purchase deadline. No other refunds will be permitted except at the discretion of BFC.
The purchase of entries/tickets is not tax deductible.
Odds of Winning:
The odds of winning the prize package will depend on the number of entries/tickets sold. There is no limit to the number of entries/tickets BFC will sell.
