The 7th Annual Raffle

We are pleased to announce the Wharton Global Alumni Forum Raffle in Cape Town on June 26-27, 2008. 

A raffle is a game of chance, in which contestants purchase tickets which give them opportunities to win excellent prizes. Winners are determined by the chance event that their raffle tickets are drawn. The only actions required by the contestants are to purchase the raffle tickets and to be present at the Raffle Drawing when the prize-winning tickets will be drawn. 

Starting on Thursday, June 26 all participants in the Forum will have the opportunity to purchase as many tickets as desired at a cost of US$10(or equivalent in other currencies) each.  The more tickets you purchase, the greater your chances of winning one of the prizes. You will be able to purchase tickets at any time during the Forum. At the Farewell Gala on Friday, June 27, the winners will be drawn and announced immediately.

In keeping with the tradition of the Forum Raffle, the proceeds from the sale of tickets will be donated to a charity chosen by the members of the Organizing Committee. This year, the charity chosen will be “The South African Education & Environment Project (SAEP)”, dedicated to improving the lives and opportunities of children in the townships through education and life-skills training.
