Cash Prize: The more who participate, the larger the prize. For each raffle, one winner will receive a cash prize of half of the Net Proceeds, as defined below, from the game's raffle sales. "Net Proceeds" means the gross receipts from the conduct of the raffle, less reasonable sums expended for local license fees and other reasonable operating expenses incurred as a result of operating the raffle. The remaining 50% of all Net Proceeds will benefit Chicago Cubs Charities.
How to purchase tickets: Tickets will be sold during each Chicago Cubs home game during the 2013 regular season. Tickets may be purchased through the second out of the bottom of the seventh inning from uniformed Chicago Cubs Charities raffle ticket sellers located throughout the park and in the vicinity of Wrigley Field. In the event of a daytime double header, there will be one raffle and tickets will be sold through the second out of the bottom of the seventh inning of the second game, provided, however, in the event of a day-night double header, there will be two raffles and tickets will be sold through the second out of the bottom of the seventh inning of each game. Tickets are non-refundable.
Drawing: Chicago Cubs Charities will randomly draw one raffle ticket for every raffle no earlier than the end of the seventh inning, and the winning number will be announced before the start of the ninth inning. In the event of a day-night doubleheader, the winner will be announced before the start of the ninth inning of each game. If a game is called prior to the fifth inning (due to weather, etc.), the winner will be announced at the conclusion of the game. The winning number and prize amount may be verified on the game day or afterwards at Fan Services or the 50/50 Raffle Kiosk on the main concourse at Wrigley Field, by calling the Chicago Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle hotline at (773) 404-4726, or by scanning the QR code at the bottom of the raffle ticket.
