What is the cost of a ticket and how many tickets can I purchase?

Can employees of Thor, Airstream and ADEC purchase tickets?

Members of ADEC’s Board of Directors, ADEC Leadership and Management employees and those listed on the Indiana Gaming Commission Raffle License, their spouses and children are excluded from participating.  All others are welcome to participate.

Can my raffle ticket be used as a tax deduction?

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 your entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.  Please consult with your own tax advisers for any additional information.  The IRS further requires corresponding income tax withholding on prizes with values of $5,000 or greater be paid prior to prize distribution.  This includes 25% federal income tax withholding and 3.4% Indiana* State tax withholding on the stated value of the 2018 Airstream Sport R.V. (fmv $46,300).  Withholding taxes must be paid to ADEC, Inc. upon delivery of the prize. 

*Or whichever state the winner resides in.

How will I know if I win the R.V.?

Winners will be contacted via phone or through the mail following prize drawing. The contact information provided with the ticket purchase will be utilized to contact winners.

How can I buy a ticket through the mail?

Individuals who wish to purchase a ticket through the mail can download and fill out an Online Mail order raffle ticket form.  Return the order form with a personal check, cashier’s check or a money order for the amount of the ticket.  Send to: ADEC, Inc. Attn: Jess Koscher, 19670 State Road 120, Bristol, IN 46507. ADEC will process the Raffle ticket order and send the completed Raffle ticket stub in the mail to the address provided in the Raffle ticket order form once corresponding payment is received/honored on or before noon, April 12, 2018.

    After reading about the taxes, I realize that if I won, I’d have to come up with cash to pay the taxes…. and I don’t have that. Can the winner get a cash reward instead? Also, I would have to buy a truck. I love the idea of entering, but if I won, I’d have to sell it, I think. ; (

      Greetings! Yes, unfortunately it is IRS law that prize winners must pay taxes on the prizes they receive. This happens even on those fun game shows or when Oprah gives out cars. We think it’s a bummer too. Because we have the Airstream already, we are not able to offer a cash equivalent like you see sometimes offered. In those cases, the item has not already been purchased by whoever is raffling it off. And I’m afraid if you did win it you’d have to get something to tow it. But I’m sure you’d want to because it’s so cute you’d want everyone to see it. Thank you for your interest.

    I went to the airstream website that you mentioned in another post and I noticed two floor plans. Which floor plan has been selected, the Sport 16RB which is closer to the price range offered in the raffle or The Sport 22FB which has more room and at a higher price range? I am going to guess it is the Sport 16RB, which is still a very nice floor plan and a very generous offer for a raffle prize to support ADEC. The cost of the $100 per ticket would be worth it.

      Greetings Tim,

      The form includes information that I must have for your ticket. How about you just write the required information out and send it with payment and we can go from there! Thank you for your interest.
