Ninth Annual UMass Hockey Reverse Raffle Set For Friday
April 17, 2013
The UMass Hockey Pond Club will host its ninth annual Reverse Raffle this Friday, April 19th, 2013 at 6:30 pm. The raffle social will be held on the 3rd floor of the Mullins Center in the Massachusetts Room. For the all-inclusive price of $115 for two, those in attendance will enjoy an entertaining evening of socializing, an all you can eat hors d'oeuvres bar, and of course the opportunity to win $4,999.
If you cannot attend the event, but would still like to buy tickets, individual balls are available for $75 (this price only includes the ball, not dinner).
The Reverse Raffle was a huge success last year. The evening was very entertaining, and all guests that attended enjoyed the dining, and variety of prizes! Our goal is to make this annual event more than just a fundraiser, but rather having the Reverse Raffle become the social event of the hockey season. It's a great way to serve as a way to bring our alumni, Pond Club members, parents, and friends together for an evening of fun.
Here is how the Reverse Raffle works. Each ticket number (1 to 200) will have a corresponding ping-pong ball entered into a raffle drum. Balls will be drawn from the raffle drum throughout the evening until one ball remains. The holder of this lucky number will claim the $4,999 Grand Prize! Additionally, numbers that have been pulled from the raffle drum will be put into a separate prize drum, and miscellaneous prizes will be given out to balls chosen from this drum throughout the night.
To purchase your ticket, please call the UMass Hockey office with your credit card information or to RSVP for the evening social. Number requests will be honored on a first come, first served, basis. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the raffle! You do not need to be present to win the Grand Prize, but you must be present to win any of the smaller prizes.
