College Fund Raffle

December 4, 2018 @ 8:00 am - December 31, 2018 @ 2:00 pm


Is saving for college among your top New Year’s resolutions? Here’s a chance to turn $40 into $40,000! Enter for a chance to win up to $40,000 for college in CML’s College Fund Raffle.

Buy a raffle ticket today and you will be entered to win funds that will be invested into a Future Scholar 529 Savings Account. A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged investment vehicle in the United States designed to encourage saving for the future higher education expenses of a designated beneficiary.

Each raffle ticket costs $40, and no more than 2,000 tickets will be sold. CML will split raffle proceeds, up to $40,000, with one winner. The more tickets sold, the larger the pot to split! The winner will have 30 days to open a Future Scholar 529 Plan account and name a child recipient.

Proceeds will fully support the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry (CML), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage young children’s potential by inviting families of all backgrounds to explore environments and experiences that spark imagination and stimulate curiosity through the power of PLAY.

The more tickets you buy, the better your chances, and the larger the reward. Each raffle ticket purchased is a single entry into the drawing. No CML purchase other than the purchase of a raffle ticket (donation, gift shop, membership, etc.) is necessary to win. Tickets will be on sale online and at our front desk. Online and on-site ticket sales will cease at 1:59PM on December 31, 2018.

The winner will be announced at 3:00PM on Monday, December 31, 2018. The winner will be notified via email and phone.

Amount of prize based on total proceeds of the raffle. CML will split proceeds (50/50) with winner, up to and including $40,000. There is no guarantee of prize amount.
