The Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle is a fundraiser that will be conducted at each Cleveland Cavaliers home game (44 dates) throughout the 2013-14 regular season.

Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle tickets can be purchased from the time doors open until the beginning of the third quarter from any of the volunteers on the concourse or at the kiosks located on the main concourse. The winning ticket number will be announced during the fourth quarter of the game. The 50/50 winner will receive 50% of the total net sales, and the remaining 50% will be split between the Cavaliers Youth Fund and that night’s participating charity.

Ticket prices:

  • 3 tickets for $5
  • 10 tickets for $10
  • 40 tickets for $20

Participants must be 18 years of age or older and do not need to be present to win. The winning ticket number will be displayed at www.cavs.com/raffle within three (3) business days of the game date. All Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle winners will have thirty (30) days from the date of the drawing to redeem their winning ticket. If a prize remains unclaimed after this thirty (30) day period, the unclaimed Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle prize money will be donated back to the Cavaliers Youth Fund.

In order to claim a Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle prize, potential winners should contact a Cavaliers Youth Fund representative. The designated Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle ticket is the only valid receipt for claiming a prize and must be redeemed either in person or via mail. The Cavaliers Youth Fund and its volunteers are not responsible for any lost or stolen Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle tickets. Upon completion of the corresponding paperwork, a check will be mailed to the winner within thirty (30) days.

All winners will be subject to the IRS rules and regulations regarding gambling winnings. For the 2013-14 season, winners of prizes over $600 will receive a W-2G form from the Cavaliers Youth Fund. Winners of prizes greater than $5,000 will have federal income tax of 25% withheld from their proceeds in accordance with IRS guidelines and regulations.

Cavaliers Youth Fund team members and volunteers are not eligible to participate in the Cavaliers Youth Fund Raffle.
