purchased. Tickets can be purchased immediately after the drawing up to
15 minutes before the next drawing. There can be only one name per
ticket. Write your name, phone number and the number of the envelope of

Monies collected from the sale of raffle tickets shall be designated the

drawing and adjusted after the drawing to account for prizes awarded. The
Grand Prize Pool amount will be updated weekly and can be found on the
game board, smabville.org and will be posted on Facebook at

The first drawing will be Friday, October 27 at 7:00 PM in the school gym.
We will draw 3 tickets. Thereafter the drawing will be each Friday (unless
otherwise posted) at 7:00 PM. One ticket is drawn each week from all
tickets sold that week. The envelope number written on the winning ticket
will be opened.
If the Queen of Hearts is found, the winner receives 60% of the Grand
Prize Pool with the remaining proceeds going directly to St. Mary’s to
benefit St. Mary’s Academy. Other cards will receive prize amounts as
indicated below. If the Queen of Hearts is not found, the Grand Prize Pool
will carry into the next week. The Grand Prize Pool will continue to
accumulate with the odds of winning increasing as more cards are
revealed.
When more than one ticket is drawn (such as week 1 and week 26), the
second ticket will be drawn after the envelope is opened from the first. The
third ticket will be drawn after the envelope is opened from the second.
The cap of the winning payout is set to $30,000. Once the Grand Prize
Pool has reached $60,000, so that 60% is equal to the maximum payout,
then 100% of the proceeds will go directly to benefit St. Mary’s Academy.
Ticket holder need not be present to win.
If the name on the ticket is illegible, another ticket will be drawn. If there is
no envelope number indicated on the ticket, the Member in Charge will
select a random number using a bingo roll basket.
If the game proceeds to week 26, we will again draw 3 tickets. Then
resume drawing 1 ticket a week until the Queen of Hearts is found.

$12 for cards 6,7,8, or 9
$16 for cards 10, Jack, or King

Queen of Hearts = 60% (40% NOT Present) of Grand Prize Pool up to
$50,000.
Once an envelope is opened, the card revealed will be removed from play
by drawing a diagonal line on the card's face and placing the card face up
on the board. Each week after the drawing, all tickets for that week’s
drawing will be destroyed.
All winning players are responsible for any and all taxes. A W2-G will be
issued for prizes over $600. No prize over $600 will paid until the W2-G
