The Community Character Coalition of Elk Grove Village (CCC) has determined to support a charitable activity within Elk Grove Village by conducting a fundraising raffle to assist VFW Post 9284 (VFW) to raise funds for the purposes of constructing an elevator at their VFW Hall.
To that end, Castle Chevrolet North, an Elk Grove Village based Chevrolet Dealership located at 175 N. Arlington Heights Road, Elk Grove Village, IL is donating a new Chevrolet Corvette for purposes of raising charitable funds. This new car will be raffled by chances sold for $10.00 each or $20 for 3 chances. It is the charitable intent and purpose of this Raffle that the raffle’s Net Proceeds (defined as gross revenue receipts minus Raffle related expenses) will be distributed for charitable purposes. All Net Proceeds will be donated to the Elk Grove VFW Post 9284 for the purposes previously stated.
All Net Proceeds will be distributed by CCC to the VFW.
The raffle will be known as “Win a Vet to Support Our Vets Raffle” and conducted by CCC. For purposes of these Contest Rules, the following shall apply. Community Character Coalition of Elk Grove Village shall be identified as “CCC”, Elk Grove Village VFW Post 9284 shall be identified as “VFW”. Castle Chevrolet North shall be identified as “Castle”.

In the event that the winner elects not to accept the prize or fails to accept it by the end of the day on July 31, 2017, the winning entry will be null and void.

TAXES AND IRS RULES
All winners shall be responsible for any and all federal, state and local income or excise taxes, fees, assessments and like charges associated with the prizes. If applicable, the IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries or similar programs are not charitable contributions and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution. Check with your qualified financial advisor for additional information.
It is understood and agreed and a condition of chance purchase that CCC, VFW and Castle Chevrolet North has no responsibility to complete this raffle if the car cannot be completed and/or donated by Castle Chevrolet North or if some unknown event prevents the raffle. In that event, the raffle may be cancelled without liability to CCC, the VFW or Castle Chevrolet North, and they shall only be responsible for return of chance purchase funds on hand.
