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. 249 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.
