There will be four separate grand prize drawings, with four 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.

Individual Game Prizes (16): Gift cards and gift baskets donated by local Charlottesville businesses. There will be 16 individual game prizes, one prize for each game played on March 21st. 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.

How it Works: There will be one raffle 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 you think UVA will beat Gardner-Webb, 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.

Drinks: Beer, Wine, and Soda will be available for purchase with drink tickets or cash. Water will be provided for free.
