How It Works
- Purchase your weekly raffle tickets (1 ticket for $5) online at carmelhs.org/queenofhearts/.
- Weekly online ticket sales will begin at 9:00 am on the day after the weekly drawing and will close at noon on the day of the drawing
- Pick a card number(s) (#1-54) from the board you believe will contain the Queen of Hearts.
At the time of purchase, each entrant will select a virtual card number(s) from the remaining unopened virtual card number(s). The purchaser may purchase unlimited raffle tickets under each of the remaining card number(s).
- Tune in "LIVE" every Thursday at 8 pm on the Carmel Catholic Facebook page to see if you are the winner.
- If your ticket is selected and the card number on the ticket reveals a joker, you will receive 10% of the pot.
- Joker resets the raffle. When a Joker is pulled, it will automatically reset the board, and a new board will be played the following week. This reset will occur every time a joker is revealed.
- If your ticket is selected and the card number on the ticket reveals the Queen of Hearts, you will receive 50% of the pot.
- Queen of Hearts ends the raffle.
- Each week the Queen of Hearts or Joker is not selected, all tickets will be destroyed and the full amount of the pot will roll over to the following week.
- The jackpot amount, based on ticket sales, will be posted in the school newsletter each week, on the school website, and on social media.
- Thank you for your support! These proceeds benefit tuition assistance and student programming at Carmel Catholic High School.
