This annual fundraiser combines two of our favorite things…NFL football and raising money for Special Olympics Iowa! For just $20, you have 8 chances to win each week of the regular NFL football season – that’s 17 weeks of play!
Help us sell tickets too! We’ll send you a book of 25 tickets to sell. You do not need to pay anything up front. Just turn in the sold tickets and money as well as any unsold tickets by the deadline.
How to Play
Each raffle ticket will have three randomly assigned teams on it for each week of the NFL season (17 weeks). Each week, your three team scores are added together to determine the winners. (For example, if in week one you had Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings, the points they score will be added together for a total). If a team has a bye week, their previous week’s score is used.
The highest scoring ticket each week will win $225, with payouts given through the eighth-highest, and to the third-lowest scores. Awards each week total $575!
- Highest – $225
- Second Highest – $100
- Third Highest – $70
- Fourth Highest – $40
- Fifth Highest – $35
- Sixth Highest – $30
- Seventh Highest – $25
- Eighth Highest – $20
- Lowest – $15
- Second Lowest – $10
- Third Lowest – $5
