2013 Harborfest `Triple Play 50/50 Raffle` presented by Furdi`s

Written by

     Harborfest brings back the traditional cash 50/50 raffle in 2013 after a one-year absence, but with a twist.

     In 2013, there will be three winners of three separate drawings. During the 2012 festival, a brand new car was awarded to the raffle winner as a change to the cash winning format that had been introduced nearly a decade ago.
     During the 2012 car raffle, people had to spend $5 for a chance to win one grand prize. For 2013, people will spend just $3 but get three tickets with chances to win in each of three different drawings.
     Custom-printed, color-coded tickets for each day will go on sale at various events this spring and summer. Participants will be able to buy "three tickets for $3 with three chances to win." People will also be able to get one free ticket by electing to purchase six tickets for $5 any time they purchase tickets.
     Harborfest has obtained permits to conduct three distinct cash raffles during the 2013 festival and there will be three winners of cash prizes as a result of the new format. The first winner, drawn Saturday morning, will be awarded a portion of pre-festival, Thursday and Friday ticket sales. The second award, drawn Sunday morning, will be from ticket sales through Saturday and the final winning ticket, drawn Monday morning, will be from ticket sales through Sunday.
     The sponsor of this new "Triple Play" cash raffle is Furdi's Manufactured & Modular Home Builders & Sellers, in Oswego and Fulton. The winning numbers for all three of the raffles will be exclusively listed on Furdi's website at www.furdi.com on Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings shortly after they are drawn at the Harborfest Office on Lake Street, in Oswego. A link to Furdi's website will be placed on the homepage of the Harborfest website at www.oswegoharborfest.com.
     No matter when raffle tickets are purchased up to the end of the day on Friday, the holder will be getting chances to win the Friday, Saturday and Sunday pots. Tickets purchased on Saturday will enter the buyer in drawings for both the Saturday and Sunday pots. Sunday purchasers will be getting chances to win the Sunday winning pot which will be the largest winner's share because it will include a portion of the proceeds of every ticket sold through the end of the raffle on Sunday.
     The largest winning pot will be the final pot since it will include a portion of the proceeds of every ticket sale. The first winning ticket number will be posted on Furdi's website on Saturday morning, the second on Sunday morning and the third on Monday morning.
