Pay. Play. Win

Cash For Kids’ Sake Reverse Raffle and Auction benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of East TN will take place Thursday August 22, 2019 at The Mill and Mine. The doors open at 5:30pm, with the program beginning at 6:30pm.

By purchasing a reverse raffle ticket, individuals have a chance to win up to $15,000.00. Tickets are $150.00 and allow dinner for one guest and one entry into the raffle. Corporate tables are available for $1,000.00 and allow for eight guests and eight entries into the raffle.

How the Reverse Raffle Works

Unlike a typical raffle, in a reverse raffle the purchaser of the last ticket drawn wins the Grand Prize of $15,000. A limited number of tickets are in play at the beginning of the raffle, Big Brothers Big Sisters of East TN will keep 1 ticket to auction to the highest bidder (the auctioned ticket will be one of the 10 to draw for the Grand Prize of $15,000). Once the Grand Prize has been given, those who did not win one of the cash prizes will be put in a drawing to win $500.00. The first ticket drawn wins $500 and other prizes will be awarded based on the order of ticket numbers drawn.
