Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I buy raffle tickets?

By going to The Franklin Band website (https://thefranklinband.org). 

Once on the homepage, you have two options:

  1. You can click the “Buy Tickets” button which is the first panel in the rotating header.
  2. Click the FHS Band Raffle square found directly below the header on the left.

Either of those options will then put you on the landing page for the Cash Raffle. You can also…

  1. Go directly to the landing page for The Franklin Band Boosters 2021 Cash Raffle at https://thefranklinband.org/posts/fhs-band-raffle/
  2. Instead of typing out that URL, you can “scan” the QR code shown if the camera app on your smartphone enables a QR Code Reader to activate your phone’s internet browser:

Can’t I buy them from my band student?

No, that is not legal and we no longer facilitate a physical raffle ticket.

 

If there isn’t a physical raffle ticket, how will raffle ticket(s) be selected?

When you fully complete the application on the TFB website and select a quantity of tickets, you will receive an e-mailed receipt – an order form.

On that receipt there will be an Order Number and the quantity of raffle tickets. 

From those two variables, each and every ticket will be identified by the order number and then the consecutive number of each ticket you purchased. 

Example: 

  • You have fully completed your order form and chose to buy 8 tickets – 3 from the option of single tickets at $25 each and a bundle of 5 for $100.
  • Once you pay the $175.00 plus a 3% fee for credit card fees ($5.25 in this case) for a total of $180.25 and… 
  • you agree to the terms and conditions of the Raffle…
  • your order is complete and transaction is complete, the receipt that includes an order number will be available. 
  • Take the number of that order (let’s say Order 15) with…
  • each ticket consecutively purchased (8) and…
  • your ticket numbers will be 15-1, 15-2, 15-3, 15-4, 15-5, 15-6, 15-7 and 15-8.
  • On our end, the same information will populate a spreadsheet that will be formatted to print 30 ticket numbers on both sides of an 8-1/2×11 page of die-cut cards. 
  • We will print two sets of them to verify every ticket is printed and to provide an accurate count of all tickets separated.
  • One set will remain in the FHSBB safe and the other set will be separated in the presence of two-or-more members of the Fundraising/TFB Booster Board of Directors and then placed in the locked and sealed rotating drum.
  • On November 4th at the Community Performance, the tickets will be drawn based on the quantity of tickets sold. Here’s that breakdown.
