- Purchasing Raffle Tickets.
All Raffle tickets (“Raffle Tickets”) may be purchased as follows: ten (10) numbers for $10.00; ninety (90) numbers for $20.00. There are no discounts or complimentary Raffle Tickets. Raffle Tickets will be available for purchase in-person at Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim home games at Tempe Diablo Stadium (the “Stadium”) during the 2020 Spring Training Season from Diablo volunteers. Raffle Tickets will be sold each day from the time the gates are opened until the middle of the 5th inning or until 3:00 pm whichever comes first.

All Raffle Ticket purchases shall be final, and no refunds or replacements will be issued by Charities. Raffle Tickets are only valid for the drawing held on the date of purchase.
- Raffle Tickets are Not Tax Deductible.The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries, or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution. You agree that the Charities and Tempe Diablos, Inc. (collectively the “Tempe Diablos”) have not provided and will not provide any tax advise or counsel.
- Prize.Each winner will receive a prize equal to fifty percent (50%) of the total proceeds from Raffle Tickets sold for that drawing, contingent upon the winner’s compliance with these Official Rules.

At the time of this printing, federal law requires that a tax withholding on certain prize values must be collected from winners upon award and distribution. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time each prize is claimed will be followed.
- Selection of Winner. Before the 6thinning of each Los Angeles Angels home game, one (1) Raffle Ticket will be randomly drawn to determine the winner of the prize. The number of the winning Raffle Ticket will be announced in the Stadium during the 6th inning.
