The number of entries into the Drawing shall be limited to a maximum of 1,500 entries, which comply with these Official Rules and Regulations using the following procedure:
    • If 1,500 submissions are accepted prior to the closing time of 10:00 a.m. Central Time on time on June 28, 2019, no further submissions will be accepted. Submissions received beyond 1,500 will be refused and, associated funds will be returned.
    • CCNWFL shall keep a daily tally of the number of submissions received and accepted, and the date on which they were received. In the event that more than a total of 1,500 accepted submissions are received, then CCNWFL shall:
    • Determine the day on which 1,500 admissions were received; and
    • If the daily tally for that day results in there being more than 1,500 accepted submissions, then
    • CCNWFL shall randomly select from all accepted submissions received that day in order to achieve exactly 1,500 accepted submissions.
  3. Selection of and Notification to Winner:The final winner will be selected at a random drawing at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, 624 Miccosukee Road, Tallahassee, FL at or around 1 pm Eastern Time on June 28, 2019, by a representative of CCNWFL Board of Directors, whose decision shall be final and binding in all respects. Entrants do not need to be present to win. The winner will be notified by phone, certified mail, and/or e-mail, according to the contact information provided to CCNWFL at the time of entry. In the event a winner cannot be contacted, fails to respond within the required 14 day notification time frame, or fails to otherwise qualify for the prize and/or declines the prize, the winner designee will forfeit any rights to the prize. Upon verification of the winner and receipt of 24% IRS withholding from the winner, CCNWFL will award the prize to the winner.
  4. Affidavit & Release:As a condition of being awarded the prize, the winner designee shall be required to execute and deliver to CCNWFL a signed Affidavit of Eligibility, and satisfy IRS 24% W-2G withholding requirement.
  5. Use of Winner’s Name and Likeness:In consideration for being awarded and delivered the prize, the winner agrees and consents, without further authorization, compensation or remuneration of any kind, to the use of such person’s name and/or likeness in any and all advertising, promotions and other publicity in any media, worldwide, in perpetuity, except where prohibited by law.
  6. Taxes and Deductibility: All federal, state and local taxes associated with the receipt of the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. The IRS currently requires income tax withholding of 24% on prize values of $5,000 or greater must be paid upon award and distribution. Government rules governing withholding can change without notice. CCNWFL will follow the rules in effect at the time the prize is awarded. 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. Check with your qualified financial advisor for additional information.
