Raffle Level (Piggest Raffle Ever)
This level of charity participation is probably the easiest manner of involvement as an Official Flying Pig Charity, but requires the charity to continually and consistently promote their participation in the Piggest Raffle Ever.
Charities wishing to participate in the Piggest Raffle Ever must register online. The Pig Staff will then post the charity’s name in a drop-down menu at the secure website www.piggestraffle.com. The charity must then promote the website and ask their constituents to go there and purchase pigs on their behalf.
Pigs cost $5 each and 100% of that money goes back to the charity in the form of a donation. And the person “purchasing the pigs” has a chance to win some fabulous prizes (please see below), if their pig is one of the first 3 down the chute at the Official “Pig Drop” on Friday night after the Little Kings Mile of Flying Pig weekend!
Organizations may also choose to sell paper raffle tickets which are available in increments of 50 tickets and requires a check or credit card deposit to reserve the tickets. Charities will also receive recognition on the Flying Pig website.
