Hope Reigns Charity Foundation, Inc. (“Hope Reigns Foundation”) will conduct 50/50 Raffles at Ontario Reign home games. 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 Ontario Reign game. The remaining one-half (or 50%) of the gross receipts is retained by Ontario Reign Foundation to benefit or support its charitable purposes or, in the case where Hope Reigns Foundation operates a 50/50 Raffle to benefit another charity, transferred to such charity. All Hope Reigns 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. The 50/50 Raffle will be operated exclusively by Hope Reigns Foundation, and not by The Ontario Reign Hockey Club, LLC (the “Ontario Reign”).
Hope Reigns Foundation 50/50 Raffle fundraisers will be conducted at select Ontario Reign home games at Citizens Business Bank Arena during the 2017-2018 American Hockey League season. Raffle tickets will be sold from when the Citizens Business Bank Arena doors open two (2) hours, or occasionally (1) hour prior to the puck drop through the end of the second intermission of home games. The winning ticket number will be drawn at the start of the third period, and the winning number and final jackpot total will be posted on the main scoreboard and announced via the public-address system on during a time-out at Citizens Business Bank Arena.
Raffle tickets can be purchased (i) at the 50/50 Raffle kiosk behind sections 112 and 122 or (ii) from a Hope Reigns Foundation 50/50 Raffle ticket seller at Citizens Business Bank Arena.
Tickets may be purchased with cash in United States dollars (U.S. $) as follows:
3 entries for $5
10 entries for $10
60 entries for $20
Raffle tickets will be sold only in areas where an event ticket is required for admission to view the game. Tickets can be purchased using cash or credit cards from a roaming seller or kiosk. Each ticket is a receipt for the purchaser and represents entries for that game’s 50/50 Raffle and is not eligible for any past or future 50/50 Raffle drawing. Hope Reigns 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. Entrants may purchase as many tickets as they wish, subject to availability. A raffle ticket is not transferrable or assignable from its purchaser to any other person. All sales of raffle tickets are final; no refunds will be made under any circumstances. Raffle ticket purchases are not tax deductible.
Hope Reigns Foundation has the right to suspend the raffle at any time during the scheduled game due to any unforeseen incidents that result in Hope Reigns Foundation being unable to conduct the 50/50 Raffle (e.g. act of God, 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.
Hope Reigns Foundation 50/50 Raffle is open to all ticket holders to Ontario Reign home games who: (i) are eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of entry and physically present at Citizens Business Bank Arena at the time of purchase; and (ii) provide valid government-issued identification. By purchasing a raffle ticket, the entrant agrees to abide by all terms of these Official Rules applicable thereto, subject to all federal, state, local and municipal laws and regulations. Some restrictions apply. Void where prohibited or restricted by law.
No person affiliated with Hope Reigns Foundation, Ontario Reign, or a registered manufacturer and distributor of raffle-related products or services used for the 50/50 Raffles, including any affiliated person, any employee or agent, or their immediate family member, may participate in any 50/50 Raffle as a raffle ticket purchaser or receive a raffle prize.
Every transaction will be electronically tallied. The running total will be periodically displayed and updated in real time on the Citizens Business Bank Arena video display board and at various locations throughout Citizens Business Bank Arena. The winning ticket number will be drawn by hand out of the raffle drum that contains every raffle number ticket that has printed throughout the game as the corresponding raffle tickets were sold throughout Citizens Business Bank Arena. Raffle sales will end at the conclusion of the second intermission and the drawing will happen at the start of the third period. The winner need not be present to claim his/her prize. One (1) winner will be chosen out of the pool of purchased ticket numbers for that game. The decisions of Hope Reigns Foundation are final and binding on all matters relating to any raffle.
The winning ticket number will be posted on the Citizens Business Bank Arena video display board and announced via the public-address system during the third period at Citizens Business Bank Arena. If the Citizens Business Bank Arena video display board is inoperable, the winning ticket number will be posted on the monitors at any 50/50 Raffle kiosk (location described above). In the case of a discrepancy between the announced number and the actual number, the actual number drawn will be considered to be the valid winning ticket. Your raffle ticket includes the email address and the phone number (909) 244-5634 that you can contact to learn the winning raffle number at the end of the game. The winning number will also be posted on ontarioreign.com/5050 within three (3) business days of the game date. Hope Reigns Foundation has no obligation to contact the winning ticket holder directly.
Each prize is cash and the amount depends on the sales of the raffle tickets. Each winning prize, in the form of a check, shall be paid to each raffle winner within four (4) to six (6) weeks via U.S. mail once the potential winner has proven eligibility and provided all documentation required by Hope Reigns Foundation and by applicable law. Each raffle winner will receive one-half (or 50%) of the total gross receipts collected by Hope Reigns Foundation for the 50/50 Raffle on the applicable game day. No substitutes for the cash prize will be allowed.
To claim your winning prize, potential winners should go to the Service Table outside section 108 at Citizens Business Bank Arena during an Ontario Reign home game or call (909) 912-1096. The purchased Hope Reigns Foundation 50/50 Raffle ticket is the only valid receipt for claiming a prize and must be redeemed in person at either an Ontario Reign home game or the Hope Reigns Foundation office. The potential raffle winner will be required to submit his/her valid social security number and appropriate identification to Hope Reigns Foundation and will be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility & Liability/Publicity Release and all applicable tax forms.
Failure to submit any identification or failure to return required documents to Hope Reigns Foundation within the specified time period, noncompliance with these Official Rules, or return of any prize or prize notification as undeliverable, may result in disqualification and the prize being forfeited. Any forfeited prize money will be retained by Hope Reigns Foundation or, in the case where Hope Reigns Foundation operates a raffle to benefit another charity, transferred to such charity. Potential winners may also choose to waive their right to receive a prize at which time the prize from that drawing will be forfeited and the prize money will be retained by Hope Reigns Foundation or transferred to such charity, as applicable.
All raffle winners will be subject to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and California Franchise Tax Board rules and regulations regarding gambling winnings. Hope Reigns Foundation must comply with all reporting requirements on the prize amounts imposed by state, local and/or federal laws. Each winner assumes all responsibility for any state, local or federal taxes, fees or other government assessments on the prize amount. Federal tax law requires that a tax withholding on certain raffle prize values must be collected from the winner before distribution of the prize. Each winner is advised to consult his/her own tax advisor(s) with respect to the liabilities that may arise from winning a prize in the 50/50 Raffle.
All Hope Reigns Foundation 50/50 Raffle winners will have until thirty (30) days following the conclusion of the applicable game date to claim their prize and return the Affidavit of Eligibility & Liability/Publicity Release. If a prize remains unclaimed after thirty (30) days following the conclusion of the date of the 50/50 Raffle, the unclaimed prize money will be retained by Hope Reigns Foundation or, in the case where Hope Reigns Foundation operates a 50/50 Raffle for the benefit of another charity, transferred to such charity.
