Here Are Some Helpful Tips For Organizing A Raffle:
Gather your materials in advance
It’s a good idea to be over prepared for your next raffle or event. You can get a lot of your materials together well in advance – even before you’ve ironed out all the details.
– Buy extra ink for your printer. There are a lot of great buys online, but you’ll need to allow time for shipping.
– Make sure your computer is running at its best. Take care of any known issues like viruses or full hard drives before it’s crunch time and it decides to conk out on you.
– Make sure you still have Raffle Ticket installed on your machine. Call our office at 1-800-944-9526 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you need your registration information resent to you.
– Check to make sure you have staples, paperclips, envelopes, or whatever you plan to use to hold the tickets together in booklets.
