HOW TO ENTER / RAFFLE PERIOD: Participants may enter the Raffle at American Family Field, One Brewers Way, Milwaukee, WI 53214 (the “Ballpark”), by purchasing a Raffle ticket from a Brewers Community Foundation 50/50 Raffle roaming seller (a “50/50 Roaming Seller”), subject to availability and operability.

For purposes of clarity, Raffle ticket sales will conclude when the third out of the bottom half of the 4th inning has been recorded.
Please Note: No portion of the Raffle ticket price may be deducted as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes.
DRAWING: The potential winning Raffle ticket will be randomly drawn from among all eligible Raffle tickets purchased during the Raffle Period for each Milwaukee Brewers home game at the Ballpark (the “Drawing”). The Drawing will be conducted by Sponsor between the end of the Raffle Period and the end of the top of the 6th inning of the respective game, and the potential winning number will be announced via the public address system and/or displayed on the Ballpark scoreboard during the middle of the 6th inning of such game.
The potential winning Raffle ticket number will also be posted at the 50/50 Table located on the Loge (2nd) level concourse behind Sections 216/217, or the winner can call the 50/50 Raffle hotline (414-902-4334) for information.
Odds of winning depend on the number of Raffle tickets purchased for the applicable Drawing.
HOW TO CLAIM PRIZE: The Participant in possession of the Raffle ticket with the potential winning number will have until the end of the top of the 7th inning (i.e., until the third out is recorded in the top of the 7th inning) to claim the Prize at the 50/50 Table located on the Loge (2nd) level concourse behind Sections 216/217. If the Participant in possession of the Raffle ticket with the potential winning number does not claim the Prize at the 50/50 Table before the last out is recorded in the top of the 7th inning, that Participant will be deemed to have forfeited any claim to the Prize, and an alternate potential winning number will be announced during the middle of the 7th inning (i.e., after the final out is recorded in the top of the 7th inning, but before the first official pitch in the bottom half of the 7th inning). The Participant in possession of the Raffle ticket with the alternate potential winning number may claim the Prize at the 50/50 Table located on the Loge (2nd) level concourse behind Sections 216/217 until such time as the Ballpark officially closes to fans after the end of the game. If the Participant in possession of the Raffle ticket with the alternate potential winning number does not claim the Prize by the time the Ballpark closes to fans after the end of the game, that Participant may still claim the Prize within thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the Raffle Period for the respective baseball game by contacting the Raffle hotline (414-902-4334). A Prize that is not claimed within thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the Raffle Period for the respective baseball game is forfeited.
The designated Raffle ticket (in its original, physical form) is the only valid receipt for claiming a Prize. A Raffle ticket will be void and a Prize will not be paid/redeemed if there is any evidence to suggest, in Sponsor’s sole determination, that the ticket was stolen, unissued, ineligible, altered, counterfeit in whole or in part, defective, printed in duplicate, or printed/produced in error. All Raffle ticket purchases are final, and no refunds or replacements will be issued by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or misplaced Raffle tickets.
DETERMINATION OF OFFICIAL WINNER: Sponsor shall have the sole discretion to determine whether a Participant with a winning Raffle ticket is the Official Winner of the Prize for the respective Drawing. Sponsor’s decision concerning the eligibility of the Official Winner and the validity of the winning Raffle ticket shall be final and binding. To be deemed the Official Winner: (1) the Participant must be eligible to participate in the Raffle under the Rules and must not be in violation of the Rules as determined in Sponsor’s sole judgment; (2) the Participant must be in possession of the winning Raffle ticket and must contact Sponsor by the deadline and in the manner specified above under “How to Claim Prize;” (3) the Participant’s winning Raffle ticket must be inspected and verified in person by Sponsor; (4) the Participant must execute and return to Sponsor an affidavit of eligibility on a form to be provided by Sponsor and provide all tax identification information and other information and documents required by federal, state, or local law, or as otherwise requested by Sponsor; and, (5) if applicable, the Participant must provide Sponsor with payment for any required withholding taxes due prior to the Participant’s receipt of the Prize. If for any reason whatsoever all of the foregoing requirements are not satisfied with respect to a particular Participant, or if the Participant does not claim the prize by the stated time and in the stated manner, then that Participant will be disqualified and the Prize forfeited, and the Prize will continue to remain the property of Sponsor to use in accordance with these Rules or otherwise for charitable fundraising purposes.
Sponsor shall use the following rules to determine the identity of any Participant and of the Official Winner of each Prize: Sponsor shall conclusively presume that the person who is in possession of that Raffle ticket is the lawful owner of that Raffle ticket, and Sponsor shall not make, nor have any duty to make, any inquiry whatsoever into the circumstances under which that person came into possession of such winning Raffle ticket. In the unlikely event that an error or problem in the administration of the Raffle results in two (2) or more Participants holding winning Raffle tickets that contain identical ticket numbers, then the Participant who claims the Prize first at the 50/50 Table shall be deemed to hold the winning Raffle ticket. Other than as stated herein, Sponsor shall have no obligation to contact any Participant to claim a Prize.
AWARD OF PRIZE TO OFFICIAL WINNER: The Prize will be awarded to the Participant who has been designated by Sponsor as the Official Winner. All Prizes will be sent to the Official Winner via check within thirty (30) business days of Sponsor’s determination of the Official Winner of the Prize for the respective Drawing as described above. For security and safety reasons, no cash payments will be made to the Official Winner.
TAXES: All applicable federal, state and local income taxes shall be the sole responsibility of the Official Winner. The taxable value of the Prize will be reported as taxable income to the Official Winner for federal and state income tax purposes, as required by law.
