How it works: “Bella Notte,” St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church’s, 3rd Annual Drawdown/Silent Auction is a type of raffle during which all purchased tickets are tossed together in a raffle drum, individually drawn at random and then eliminated from the contest one at a time until the last ticket remains.
Overview of the Evening’s Opportunities to Win - Drawdown Cash Prizes: 500 tickets will be sold. Tickets are drawn one at a time. Prizes awarded based on when the ticket is drawn. Total cash prizes: $10,000.
**All non-winning tickets drawn will be placed into a 2nd Chance drawing which will occur after the main Drawdown and the first 8 randomly drawn tickets will win $250 and the next 2 drawn will win $500.
Winners will be notified if not present and asked to claim their prize within 30 days.
All efforts to notify winners will be made, however, if after 30 days prizes remain unclaimed they shall be forfeited to St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church.
Second Chance Insurance: A ticket buyer may choose to pay an extra $25, at time of ticket purchase, for a "second chance opportunity." If your
ticket is drawn within the first 50 tickets and you purchased the insurance, your ticket will be placed back into the raffle drum at the halfway point for a second chance at the drawing.
Door Prizes – Everyone attending the Gala will be presented with a door prize ticket and is eligible to win a door prize. A prize will be offered for every 50th ticket drawn. Ticket holders must be present to win door prizes. If the ticket holder is not present and there is no representative for that ticket, we will continue to draw tickets until the next one is present to win the door prize.
Silent Auction: Silent auction packages will be available on Bella Notte web site and at the Parish Center for your viewing and bidding pleasure! There are a wide variety of items at different values so there truly is something for every bidder!
The money raised from this Drawdown will be used to help pay the mortgage for our recently completed Parish Education Center.
