North Eugene Babe Ruth families, our biggest fundraiser of the year is upon us:

  1. What is different from last year? This year, Willamette Valley Babe Ruth is back to hosting this event for all areas.
  2. What is so important about the Raffle? We sell raffle tickets to raise money for field and complex maintenance, and other program costs. We use a looooooot of Turface here in the Willamette Valley!
  3. When do I get my 25 tickets? Raffle ticket pick-up night is Tuesday, February 22nd, at the Riviera Baptist Church (3071 River Rd, Eugene, OR 97404).
  4. What do I do with the 25 tickets I receive at Raffle Ticket Pick-up Night? Those tickets are paid for in full as part of your player’s registration fee. Turn them in to win a prize for yourself, or sell them for $2 each to recoup up to $50 of player fees.
  5. When do I turn in sold Raffle tickets? Raffle tickets are due by Monday, March 28th. We’ll coordinate with coaches and team parents on how to best collect these.
  6. When / where is the drawing? April 9th, 2022, at 1:00PM, at the Babe Ruth Complex, during Opening Ceremonies. You are not required to be present to win.
  7. What are the prizes? CASHHHHHHH!
    • First Prize: 🎊 $1000 Cash 🎊
    • Second Prize: 🥳 $500 Cash 🙌
    • Third Prize: 🎉 $250 Cash 🎉
  8. Are there any prizes for the player who sells the most tickets? Yes! This year, NEBR’s top seller will receive:
    • #1 Seller: a $200 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods
    • #2 Seller: a $100 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods
    • #3 Seller: a $50 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods
  9. If I win a prize, how will I be contacted? If you take one thing from this post, please take this: Write your contact information on your raffle ticket stub, and make sure it is legible! This is the one and only way the WVBR board will know how to contact you. Leave your chicken scratch for the prescription pad, doc.
