The winning Raffle ticket numbers will also be posted on www.cardinals.com/5050 (the "Website") within 24 hours of the Drawing and will remain posted on the Website for thirty (30) calendar days after the date of the Drawing during which the winning Raffle ticket number was selected (the "Prize Claim Period"). As provided below under "NOTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNERS," each Potential Winner (as hereinafter defined) will have thirty (30) calendar days from the date of the Drawing to claim his or her Prize. A Potential Winner will be disqualified from the Raffle and not entitled to receive a Prize if he or she does not present the winning ticket to Sponsor within the Prize Claim Period. Prizes that would have been given to the disqualified Potential Winner if not for the disqualification shall remain the property of Sponsor to use for charitable purposes. Sponsor shall have no obligation to contact any Potential Winner to claim a Prize.
NOTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNERS: Potential Winners need not be present in person at the Drawing in order to win. EACH POTENTIAL WINNER MUST CONTACT SPONSOR DIRECTLY TO BEGIN THE PROCESS REQUIRED TO CLAIM HIS OR HER PRIZE WITHIN THE PRIZE CLAIM PERIOD BY EITHER REPORTING THEIR WINNING RAFFLE TICKET TO GUEST RELATIONS OUTSIDE SECTION 148 AT BUSCH STADIUM OR AT SUCH OTHER LOCATION AS DETERMINED BY SPONSOR OR BY SENDING AN EMAIL CONTAINING THAT POTENTIAL WINNER'S CONTACT INFORMATION TO [email protected] DURING THE PRIZE CLAIM PERIOD TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS SO SPONSOR MAY INSPECT AND VERIFY EACH POTENTIAL WINNER'S RAFFLE TICKET. TICKETS MUST BE PRESENTED WITHIN THE PRIZE CLAIM PERIOD FOR VISUAL INSPECTION AND VALIDATION. A POTENTIAL WINNER'S FAILURE TO FOLLOW ANY OR ALL OF THE REQUIREMENTS CONTAINED IN THESE RULES SHALL RESULT IN THE DISQUALIFICATION OF SUCH POTENTIAL WINNER. IN THE EVENT OF DISQUALIFICATION OF A POTENTIAL WINNER, THE PRIZE SHALL CONTINUE TO REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF SPONSOR.
DETERMINATION OF ANY OFFICIAL WINNER(S): Sponsor shall have the sole discretion to determine whether an Entrant with a winning Raffle ticket ("Potential Winner") is an Official Winner of a Prize. Sponsor's decision concerning the identity of all Official Winners shall be final and binding. To become an "Official Winner": (1) a Potential Winner 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) that Potential Winner must have a winning Raffle ticket and must contact Sponsor by the deadline specified above under "NOTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNERS"; (3) that Potential Winner's winning Raffle ticket must be inspected and verified in person by Sponsor by the deadline specified above; (4) that Potential Winner 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 otherwise requested by Sponsor; and (5) where applicable, provide Sponsor with payment for any required withholding taxes due prior to that Potential Winner's receipt of the Prize. If for any reason whatsoever all of the foregoing requirements are not satisfied with respect to a particular Potential Winner, or if Sponsor is unable for any reason to identify or contact a Potential Winner, then that Potential Winner will be disqualified and the Prize will continue to remain the property of Sponsor to use for charitable purposes.
Sponsor shall use the following rules to determine the identity of any Potential Winner and of the Official Winner of each Prize: (1) Sponsor shall conclusively presume that the person who is in possession of that Raffle ticket is the lawful owner of that Raffle ticket and that ticket's winning number, 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 Raffle ticket purchasers holding winning Raffle tickets that contained identical ticket numbers, then the person who has record of the earliest ticket purchase shall be deemed to hold the winning Raffle ticket.
AWARD OF PRIZE(S) TO OFFICIAL WINNER(S): A Prize will be awarded to each Potential Winner who has been designated by Sponsor as an Official Winner. All prizes will be sent to the Official Winner via check within thirty business days of Official Winner delivering a winning Raffle ticket to a representative of Sponsor as described above. For security and safety reasons, no cash payments will be made to Official Winners.
TAXES: Sponsor may withhold for all applicable taxes as permitted or required by law, but 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.
