TICKET PURCHASER: A raffle ticket purchaser, or one to whom a raffle ticket is legally transferred, must be a business entity or an individual eighteen (18) years of age or older, who is a resident of Arizona or physically present in Arizona at the time of purchase of the raffle ticket. Only one individual or entity may be named on a raffle ticket stub. The raffle is conducted in English at the Show. A ticket drawn that does not have a readable name, e-mail address and/or contact phone number is invalid and will be disqualified.
WINNERS: A winner of any of the prizes is not required to be present at the drawing. RCTF will make reasonable efforts to contact the winner using the telephone number and/or the email address on the ticket stub within ten (10) business days following the drawing. In the event that the telephone number or email address supplied on any winning ticket stub contains an incorrect phone number or email address and/or if the winner cannot otherwise be located within ten (10) business days following the drawing, an alternate winner shall be chosen from the remaining tickets at a time and place determined by RCTF. Winners are responsible for shipment of prize if outside of Tucson, AZ.
DRAWINGS: There is no limit on the number of raffle tickets that may be sold, but there is a requirement that a minimum of 5,000 raffle tickets must be sold for the first place (automobile or cash) prize to be given away to the winner. If less than 5,000 tickets are sold, the first place winner will be awarded one-third of the gross proceeds of the ticket sales, less the state and federal taxes required to be withheld. Using cell phone time, raffle tickets will be sold at the show up until 3:15 PM. Sales of all raffle tickets are final and no refunds will be given. RCTF reserves the right to verify that a winning raffle ticket was paid for with good funds and, if payment was made by check, to verify that the check was honored. The drawing will take place at the Show following the awards ceremony and is under the direction and control of the Chairperson of RCTF or his/her designated representative present at the Show. The chance of winning is determined strictly by the number of raffle tickets sold. Members of the Rotary Club of Tucson, or officers and directors of RCTF, are eligible to win any of the prizes. The drawing shall begin by first selecting the winner of the first place prize, followed by secondary prizes (which may vary from year-to-year).
1. IF FIRST PLACE AUTOMOBILE IS CHOSEN: Winner must complete a W-9 and provide a cashiers check for tax due as computed by RCTF accountant. Car remains in RCTF possession until tax has been paid and required information provided. Title, paid for by RCTF, will then be transferred to the winner, after which the winner is responsible for picking up the automobile at a location in Tucson, Arizona, mutually agreed upon by the Winner and the RCTF.
RCTF warrants that the title to the automobile is free, clear and unencumbered. The automobile will be awarded to the Winner in an as is condition. RCTF will furnish the winner with its opinion as to the fair market value of the automobile for tax purposes, but does not warrant that the federal or state taxing authorities will accept RCTFs valuation of the automobile for income tax purposes.
2. IF FIRST PLACE CASH IS CHOSEN: Winner must complete a W-9, tax is deducted from the total cash prize, and the difference is given in the form of a check produced by the RCTF Treasurer.
WINNERS OF SECONDARY PRIZES: When accepting a secondary prize, the winner shall sign a Prize Awardee Release form assuming all risks, including taxes, associated with the raffle prize redemption.
PRIVACY: Raffle winners (either by purchasing a ticket for themselves, or gifted a winning raffle ticket) shall allow RCTF to use their name, address and likeness, in perpetuity, for purposes of advertising the raffle or Show, without further consent or compensation, or the execution of a publicity release, unless prohibited by law.
ARBITRATION: In the event of any dispute, claim, or controversy arising between the purchaser of a raffle ticket and the RCTF or the Rotary Club of Tucson relating to the raffle, it shall be resolved by final, binding arbitration in Tucson, Arizona, pursuant to the Revised Uniform Arizona Arbitration Act, ARS 12-3001, et seq.
FORCE MAJEURE: In the event the Tucson Classics Car Show is cancelled due to inclement weather, pandemic, or other unforeseeable circumstances, the raffle will still take place at the appointed time and prizes awarded, but no monetary refunds for ticket purchases will be given. Neither RCTF nor the Rotary Club of Tucson shall be liable for any delay or failure of conducting the Raffle by reason of any act of God, acts of a common enemy, the elements, earthquake, fire, floods, riots, epidemics or other similar events or acts constituting an event of force majeure. If, through no fault of the RCTF, a proposed prize becomes unavailable due to cessation of manufacture, or destruction, or similar problem, RCTF reserves the right to substitute a similar product that is of equal or greater value.
GOVERNING LAW: Any case or controversy arising out of the Show or the raffle shall be governed by the laws of the State of Arizona.
TAXES: At the time of the preparation of these rules, federal law requires that corresponding tax withholding on prize values of $ 5,000.00 or more must be collected from a Winner upon award and distribution of the prize. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time of the award of the prizes will be followed. The IRS has taken the position that the amounts paid for chances to participate in a raffle are not gifts and thus the price of the ticket(s) does not qualify as a charitable deduction.
