Our ninth annual Reverse Raffle will be on November 2, 2019!

Thanks to all of our generous supporters, the event has sold out. 

Here’s how it works:

Each year, there are only 400 tickets available to win the $10,000 grand prize. Each ticket purchased provides the following:

  • A 1 in 400 chance at the $10,000 Grand Prize
  • A chance at other cash prizes totaling $1,600
  • A chance to win one of many “2nd chance” door prizes
  • Admission for two to the Reverse Raffle party with complimentary snacks, beer, wine and pop

You do not need to be present to win.

Remember, you can share a raffle ticket with your friends, family members or coworkers. Tickets can be purchased online or via mail. Tickets will be mailed once availability and payment have been confirmed. If you buy your raffle ticket early on, you will be entered in our Early Bird Raffle Drawing to win an additional $100.

Reverse Raffle FAQs


What’s a Reverse Raffle?

A Reverse Raffle is a unique fundraiser that’s one part raffle ticket and one part fantastic party. Each year, we sell 400 (and only 400) tickets for $100 each. Then we throw an annual Reverse Raffle Drawing Party that has become the hit of the MSM social season. Ticket holders attend and watch for their number to be called while celebrating with classmates, family and friends of MSM.

Unlike in other raffles, you do not want your ticket to be drawn. Each ticket drawn is eliminated from winning the grand prize. The last ticket left in the basket wins $10,000.

Don’t worry, even if your ticket is the first one drawn, you’ll still enjoy a fabulous party and even have a chance to win a consolation prize. (Ticket holders need not be present to win.)
