    I also would nominate TI-Dome and for his trouble should be awarded a Free CD.All money is for LHS treasury.

    Just think Ti-Dome with this cd you will really appreciate those Titanium Domes.

    The funds should go straight to the LH treasurer as normal donations. Anyone who gave already this year ($10 or more) gets one chance. Any donations after the official OK is given will get one chance per $10 donated, plus maybe a bonus as Heather indicated.

    Concurrent with the official okey-dokey announcement is the ending date announcement (30 days?), then at the end of the time the LH treasurer sends the drawing coordinator a simple spreadsheet showing who donated what on what date from Jan 1 to the end of the fundraiser. The drawing coordinator figures the number of chances per entrant, assigns a ticket number for each chance (using pre-printed tickets) and draws the necessary number of tickets to produce 30 unique winners. Winners are notified and CDs shipped out, paid from LH proceeds.

    I run a nonprofit. We do this shit all the time. I can do it in my sleep. I'll volunteer to do everything except receive the money and produce the actual CDs. I'll send Bo one bill for the postage after all is said and done. I'll donate the packaging if necessary. I'll invite Steve Schell or somebody else close by to supervise the draw. BUT, if I do all this, I want a CD. I'll still make a donation, too.

    How about

    1 chance for every 10$ donation since January 1?

    There are some problems with this:
    1. Many who donate prefer to be kept anonymous - they are known only to me and Don.
    2. There are some who donated since Jan 1 and may not have an interest in this? Using that start-date, you are diluting the chances of those donating FOR this "cause".
    3. I suggest you set a START and END date - all donations in that period will be specific and tagged for this "cause".
    4. I hear nothing but "Aye!!"s from everyone in my earshot...

    Well, I contributed quietly in early Feb - not for the beer run thing, just a general thank you for the resources and the help I've gotten here, but I'd match it with another if I'd get chances/credit for both.

    I vote for all contribs since Jan 1 counting towards this.

    Hell, I don't care. I worry a bit about disclosure, which is why I prefer you set hard START and END dates, with clear rules.

    Also, were it me, I would lower the threshold and thereby increase the frequency, if you get my drift. With most raffles, tickets are priced low and players buy many, increasing their odds (and the overall funds). HOWEVER, in the PayPal world, this might sum to too many fees, but I haven't done the maths.

    TiDome: what say you - have you looked at this?

    I don't think you need to actually issue printed hard copy tickets. Just assign each donor a sequential number for each $10 they donate and then at the end of the program use a random number generator to "pick" the winninig tickets.

    Is it possible for the supplier to burn as many as needed (paying the royalities as required) and use it as an an ongoing fundraiser for Lansing Heritage?

    Someone should talk with John about that.

    I'd be happy to pay $30 a copy.

    There's a great idea.

    The copies we are getting I assume to be original.Making copies of these would be an insult to the generosity of JBL. I don't think anyone is prepared to collect royalties and do the paperwork even if JBL were to go along with it.
