Thank you for supporting the St. Jude Fresno, CA St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway conducted by ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (SJCRH) (if applicable, through or by its local chapter). The following Terms and Conditions shall apply:
A ticket represents a chance to win the opportunity to accept an offer of the stated prize on these terms and conditions and, upon winning, those in the “Winner Notification Agreement,” the terms of which are hereby incorporated by reference. If you hold a ticket or receipt, your ticket has been entered in the raffle, subject to these terms and conditions. Winning tickets shall be selected by random drawing and all participants have an equal opportunity to win. Tickets, receipts and the winners’ rights are not transferable. Purchase of this ticket constitutes full agreement by the purchaser that he/she agrees with all terms and conditions set forth herein. Winners need not be present at the drawing. All sales of raffle tickets are final and there shall be no refunds.
Winners agree to accept all prizes in their “AS IS, WHERE IS” condition, subject to all latent and patent conditions, with absolutely no express or implied warranties of any kind by SJCRH.
Each winner will be notified, via USPS certified mail, return receipt required to the address provided by the winner. Each winner will have seven (7) days from the date of receipt of the certified letter to accept the prize by executing and returning the Winner Notification Agreement pursuant to the terms stated therein. Failure to execute and return the Winner Notification Agreement and accept the prize “as is,” timely, and pursuant to the terms stated in the Winner Notification Agreement, will automatically result in forfeiture of the prize, with no substitution or alternative prize available to the original winner. In the event of forfeiture, the next winner that was selected will be awarded the prize, in addition to the prize awarded to that winner.
Prizes will not be awarded, and will be deemed forfeited, if the winner’s ticket was issued in exchange for a check returned for “insufficient funds” or for a credit card charge deemed “declined,” “invalid,” or “stolen.”
Prizes may not be substituted or exchanged by winner. SJCRH may substitute a prize of equal or greater value should a featured prize become unavailable. Restrictions may apply to some prizes.
The IRS has ruled that the $100 ticket price is not deductible as a charitable donation for Federal income tax purposes.
SJCRH does not rent or sell its donor or supporter list information to third parties.
Winners shall have no rights in prizes until the prize is fully and unconditionally accepted by the winner as evidenced by the timely execution and return of the Winner Notification Agreement and until complete delivery of the prize is made to the winner. All prizes remain the sole property of SJCRH until unconditionally accepted “as is, where is” by the winner.
Acceptance of a prize is permission for SJCRH to use the names, pictures, video images, and relevant quotes of all winners and agreement that the prizes will not be used for further fundraising.
Winners of all prizes are subject to all Federal and State income taxes and all other taxes payable due to their acceptance of their prize and the law, regulations, procedures, rules and directives applicable to raffles. All federal, state and local laws relating to the transfer, ownership or use of the prizes apply. Prizes shall not be transferred until all legal requirements have been met. The IRS requires that taxes on prizes valued greater than $5,000 must be paid upon acceptance and before SJCRH may deliver the prize to the winner. Winners are encouraged to consult a tax professional.
If there is more than one name on an entry, the prize will be awarded to the first name listed on the entry as the winner, so long as that person is 18 years old or older and a resident of the State of California. It is the sole responsibility of the winner in a multiple party entry to allocate any prize among the participants in the multiple party entry.
Employees of SJCRH and their immediate families are not eligible to participate.
The following groups, their employees, and their immediate family are not eligible to win any prize: Media sponsors, Members of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Dream Home builders, Dream Home developers, Dream Home volunteers, Contractors, Ticket outlets, Prize sponsors, ALSAC/St. Jude Board Members, and Dream Home auditors and accountants.
"Immediate Family" is defined as the spouse, parents, in-laws, grandparents, great-grandparents, brothers, sisters, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of the employee and his/her spouse. This definition also includes individuals for whom an employee is the current legal guardian or individuals who are not legally related to but who reside with an employee. ("Step" relationships also are covered by this definition.) The determinations of SJCRH and the Raffle Committee are final and binding with respect to any matter arising out of the interpretation or application of these terms and conditions.
SJCRH maintains no control of the personnel, equipment or operations of any supplier and assumes no responsibility for any financial loss, personal injury, property damage, other loss, accident, delay, inconvenience or irregularity which winners may experience by reason of (1) performance or nonperformance by any supplier; (2) wrongful, careless, negligent, or unauthorized acts or omissions on the part of any supplier or its employees, or on the part of any other party not under the control of SJCRH; (3) any defect, breakdown or other failure of any aircraft, train, automobile, ship, accommodation, or other equipment or instrumentality owned, operated, or otherwise used by a supplier or; (4) any acts of God, acts or omissions of third parties, damage or loss associated with any terrorist activities, social or labor unrest, mechanical or construction failures, disease, local laws, climactic conditions, or other conditions or developments.
