The price per ticket is $20.00. A maximum of 3,500 will be sold. Ticket sales will cease when the maximum number of qualified entries is reached. Any requests and payments received following the cut off time or after the sale of 3,500 tickets will be returned to the sender. If fewer than 3,500 Raffle tickets are sold, BBOP reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to substitute 50% of the gross sales revenue from the tickets sold as of the time of the entry deadline as the prize in lieu of the car. The ratio of prizes to tickets is approximately 1 to 3,500 if all tickets are sold.
All entries must be fully completed in order to be eligible including the printed name, address, phone number, and email of the entrant as well as a signature of the entrant agreeing to abide by the rules of the Raffle as prescribed by BBOP.
GRAND PRIZE: BBOP does not undertake to give advice on the legal or tax consequences of the Raffle, or its winner. However, it understands that the IRS position is that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts, and consequently do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions. The Grand Prize winner assumes and must pay all fees and charges (including, but not limited to, tags and license), sales taxes and income taxes (local, state and federal taxes) when the car is transferred to the winner. In addition, all costs of car ownership, including but not limited to insurance, are the Grand Prize winner’s sole responsibility. BBOP assumes no responsibility for a prizewinner’s tax obligations and suggests you consult your tax advisor. Forms W-2G & 941 will be filed with the Internal Revenue Service to report the value of the prize won. All required forms will also be filed with the state of Indiana Department of Revenue and Gaming Commission. The winner will also receive a copy of these forms. This offer is void where prohibited by law and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. In the event that BBOP exercises its right to award 50% of gross sales revenue from tickets sold as of the time of the entry deadline as the prize in lieu of the car, no additional cash will be provided to the Grand Prize winner.
THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL LEGAL TAX ADVICE. AWARD OF THE GRAND PRIZE COULD HAVE MATERIAL ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES ON THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WITH RESPECT TO TAXES, INCOME, GOVERNMENT ENTITLEMENTS OR OTHER BENEFITS, OR OTHER LEGAL, FINANCIAL OR OTHER MATTERS.
