On August 8th, I posted about a raffle to win 2 tickets to Antarctica as part of a charity auction to raise funds to support Chabad of Cleveland.
The raffle was an amazing success, despite being open for just over 2 weeks.
I was thrilled that we were able to draw a winner with a live-stream yesterday so that everyone was able to watch in real-time as Levi B. from Los Angeles took home the grand prize. Levi bought the package of 5 tickets for $360.
Charity auctions often advertise on DansDeals, one shul told me they raised enough to complete their building fund with a successful raffle campaign on DansDeals. Shameless plug: Email JJ at email@example.com for more information on running an ad here!
These raffles are usually fairly opaque, so I found it fun to be able to create the pricing points and interesting to see where people were buying from and which packages they chose.
648 people bought the following packages as follows:
407 bought one ($48,026)
186 bought two ($33,480)
43 bought five ($15,480)
7 bought ten ($4,900)
5 bought fifteen ($5,000)
=1,139 entries for a total of $106,886
Where people bought from:
ON, Canada: 4
QC, Canada: 2
Didn’t win? There are still a few slots left on the cruise, though they won’t last for long!
Thanks to everyone who participated!
