The 9th Annual Raffle

We are pleased to announce the Wharton Global Alumni Forum Raffle
in Madrid on June 24–25, 2010.

A raffle is a game of chance, in which contestants purchase tickets that give them the opportunity to win exciting prizes.  Winners are determined when their raffle ticket is drawn.  For a chance to win, contestants need to purchase a raffle ticket and to be present at the Raffle Drawing when the prize-winning tickets will be selected. 

Beginning Thursday, June 24, all Forum participants will have the opportunity to purchase as many tickets as desired at a cost of 10 USD or 10 EUR (or equivalent in other currencies) each.  The more tickets you purchase, the greater your chances of winning a prize.  You may purchase tickets at any time during the Forum.  At the Farewell Gala on Friday, June 25, winners will be drawn and announced.

In keeping with the tradition of the Forum Raffle, all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to a charity chosen by the members of the Organizing Committee.
