OVERVIEW: THE SHARKS FOUNDATION will conduct a 50/50 RAFFLE at select San Jose Sharks home game(s). A 50/50 RAFFLE is a raffle where the prize to the winning ticket holder is one-half (or 50%) of the gross receipts generated from the sale of raffle tickets at a single Sharks game. The remaining one-half (or 50%) of the gross receipts is retained by THE SHARKS FOUNDATION for charitable use, or donated to a charity chosen in THE SHARKS FOUNDATION's sole discretion, to benefit or support its charitable purposes. All SHARKS FOUNDATION 50/50 RAFFLE tickets, transactions, participants, purchasers and winners are subject to these Official Rules, and to all applicable statutes, rules and regulations, including but not limited to the State of California Penal Code and the California Bureau of Gambling Control rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, and all other applicable rules and regulations adopted by any regulatory and/or enforcement agency having jurisdiction with respect to the activities to which these Official Rules apply. Each 50/50 RAFFLE will be operated exclusively by THE SHARKS FOUNDATION, and not by San Jose Sharks, LLC (the "Sharks") or any of the other NHL Entities (as defined below).
TICKET PURCHASE: THE SHARKS FOUNDATION 50/50 RAFFLE fundraisers will be conducted at select Sharks home games at SAP Center at San Jose ("the Venue") throughout the 2016-17 National Hockey League season including the preseason and post-season. THE SHARKS FOUNDATION reserves the right to not conduct a raffle for any particular San Jose Sharks home game. Raffle tickets will be sold from the time the Venue doors open through the end of the second intermission. The winning ticket number will be drawn during the third period, and the winning number and final jackpot total will be posted on the videoboard and the monitors located at the kiosk locations.
Raffle tickets can be purchased at: (i) the 50/50 RAFFLE kiosks located on the Concourse and/or on the Club Level or (ii) from a 50/50 RAFFLE Seller/Team Member (wearing a 50/50 RAFFLE shirt roaming throughout the Venue.
TICKET PRICES: Tickets may be purchased with cash (United States Dollars [$]) or credit or debit card as follows:
Raffle tickets will be sold only in areas where an event ticket is required for admission to view the game. Each ticket is a receipt for the entrant and will reflect the number of entries for that game's raffle purchased in a single transaction. Each ticket will include unique ticket numbers (or raffle draw numbers) for each entry purchased and is not eligible for any past or future 50/50 RAFFLE drawing. Entrants may purchase as many tickets as they wish, subject to availability. All sales are final and no refunds will be made under any circumstance. A raffle ticket is not transferrable or assignable from its purchaser to any other person. Each ticket must be purchased by only one person - people may not "split" or "share" individual tickets. Raffle ticket purchases are not donations and are not tax deductible.
THE SHARKS FOUNDATION is not responsible for printing errors in any raffle-related material or any misdirected, incomplete, lost, late or illegible tickets or other errors or problems that may limit the entrant's ability to participate in or win any 50/50 RAFFLE. False or deceptive entries or acts by the purchaser will render the purchaser ineligible.
THE SHARKS FOUNDATION has the right to suspend the raffle at any time during the scheduled game due to any unforeseen incidents that result in THE SHARKS FOUNDATION being unable to conduct the 50/50 RAFFLE (for example, weather delay, power outage, emergency, or other unforeseeable circumstances). In that case, the raffle ticket sales will terminate and the raffle drawing will be postponed until the unforeseen incident no longer interferes with the conduct of the 50/50 RAFFLE.
