I know that many have been wondering what happened to this raffle. The good news is that it is about to start and should begin within a week. Dennis Leisz has generously offered to act as treasurer for Project May and one of his first duties is to coordinate the raffle.
I am posting this in the public forum to gain input on conducting the raffle before finalizing a set of rules. The input I am looking for is:
1) What fundraising target do we think is realistic?
2) Price per ticket ($5 has been suggested)?
3) Timeframe (fixed or open ended until we reach the target)?
4) Who do we invite (Lansing Heritage only or other forums and websites)?
5) Any other issues?
I only plan to keep this thread open for a few days until such time as we gain sufficient input to define the raffle format.
