How it Works: This event will involve food, drinks, and a raffle for every game that you enter in by correctly guessing the winner. There will be two raffle drawings for each of the 16 games played and four grand prize raffle drawings throughout the event. Each participant in the event will be given a certain amount of raffle tickets, depending on the ticket level purchased, and they will selectively use their raffle tickets to pick who they think will win a certain basketball game.
For example, if UVA plays Florida Gulf Coast in the first round and you think UVA will win the game, you may place your raffle ticket(s) in the UVA basket. If UVA wins, there will be a raffle drawing out of everyone who picked UVA, and the winner will receive a gift card or gift basket from a local Charlottesville business. All of the winning tickets (those who picked UVA) will then be entered into the grand prize drawing. This will happen for all 16 games that day. Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase for $3 each.
Individual Game Prizes: There will be 32 individual game prizes, two for each game played on March 16. Two prize winners will be chosen by a raffle of people who correctly picked the winner of each individual game. There is no limit to how many raffle tickets can be placed in each raffle per person. You are eligible to win more than one individual game raffle, as well as to win both individual game raffles and a grand prize. Individual raffle prizes will have an average retail value of $50.
Grand Prizes: There will be three separate grand prize drawings, with three different winners. You are eligible to win an individual game prize and a grand prize, but you are only eligible to win one grand prize. Grand prize drawings will be taken from the pool of all “winning tickets” throughout the day, i.e. those placed on winning teams. The grand prizes are:
- Basketball Signed by UVA Men’s Basketball Coach Tony Bennett
- Signed UVA Basketball Team Poster
- 4 Tickets to UVA Basketball Game
- $50 Gift Cards to Local Businesses
- And More!
