Special Olympics Colorado will not award a prize if the prize winner (a) was ineligible to purchase a ticket or otherwise enter the Raffle, (b) provided materially false or misleading information to Special Olympics Colorado in connection with the purchase of a Raffle ticket, or (c) if participating in this Raffle or receiving a prize is prohibited with respect to such person pursuant to these Rules or Applicable Law. No other Raffle ticket will be substituted for a Raffle ticket, and Special Olympics Colorado will retain the prize. A Ticket Holder cannot assign or transfer his/her interest in a Raffle ticket or a prize won by a winning Raffle ticket.

Winners will be required to provide their Colorado driver's license or other valid form of identification in order to claim their prize.

PRIVACY: By entering the Raffle, entry purchasers agree that their information provided in connection with the Raffle entry may be used for communications promoting the Raffle and future raffles sponsored by or conducted for the benefit of Special Olympics Colorado. An entry purchaser may subsequently "opt-out" of the receipt of such communications by following the directions in any email, other communication or by contacting the Administrator (contact information below). Purchase of an entry in the Raffle constitutes permission for the Raffle and Special Olympics Colorado to use winner's name, address and/or likeness, in perpetuity, for purposes of advertising the Raffle or future raffles without further consent or compensation, unless prohibited by law.

REQUIREMENTS:   If an entrant is found to be ineligible, or if a potential winner does not comply with the Official Rules, then the potential winner will be disqualified and the prize or a cash equivalent will revert to Special Olympics Colorado.

RAFFLE CANCELLATION: In the unforeseen event the Raffle is cancelled or cannot be completed, every effort will be made to refund the ticket purchase price to all Raffle ticket purchasers. Tickets purchased by credit card will be refunded to credit card holder's account. Special Olympics Colorado's liability to any ticket purchaser is the purchase price of the ticket.

WAIVER / LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY: Except as described in the previous paragraph, entry purchasers, by participating in the Raffle (and winners, by accepting a Raffle prize), release Special Olympics Colorado, partners, subsidiaries, agents, representatives, sponsors, service agencies and independent contractors, and each of their respective directors, officers, partners, employees and agents, including advertising and promotion agencies, from any and all liability with respect to participation in the promotion, possession, use and distribution of the prize(s) awarded.

INTERNET: The Raffle will pursue all available legal remedies against any individual(s) damaging or attempting to damage any Special Olympics Colorado Raffle website or attempting to undermine the lawful operation of the Raffle.

ADMINISTRATOR: Special Olympics Colorado, 12450 E Arapahoe Rd Suite C, Centennial, CO 80112. Phone: 720-359-3100.

DISPUTES: In the event a dispute shall arise between the purchaser and Special Olympics Colorado, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the raffle shall be settled by Colorado Secretary of State.

FORCE MAJEURE: Special Olympics Colorado shall not be in default or otherwise liable for any delay in or failure of its performance of the Raffle if such delay or failure arises by any reason beyond reasonable control, including any act of God, any acts of war, terrorism, the elements, earthquakes, floods, fires, epidemics, pandemics, riots, failures or delay in transportation or communications, or any act or failure to act by the other party or such other party's employees, agents or contractors.

GOVERNING LAW: Should a dispute arise between a purchaser and Special Olympics Colorado, purchaser agrees that all cases, controversies, and legal issues shall be governed by the laws and jurisdiction of the State of Colorado.

REGISTRATION: This Raffle is being conducted pursuant to Bingo-Raffle License #2023-18468, issued by the Colorado Secretary of State's Office, and is being conducted in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Colorado Constitution (Section 2 of Article XVIII), Colorado's Bingo and Raffles Law (Colorado Revised Statutes, Title 21, Article 24, Part 6), and Colorado's Rules Covering and Regulating Bingo/Raffles (8 CCR 1505-2).

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. All cash prizes will be paid net of applicable income tax withholding.

SPECIAL NOTE: At the time of this printing, federal law requires that corresponding tax withholding on prize values of $5,000 or greater must be collected from winners upon award and distribution. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time prizes are claimed will be followed. 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.
