The 6th Annual Raffle

We are pleased to announce the Wharton Global Alumni Forum Raffle in Costa Rica on June 7-8, 2007. 

A raffle is a game of chance, in which contestants purchase tickets which give them opportunities to win excellent prizes. Winners are determined by the chance event that their raffle tickets are drawn. The only actions required by the contestants are to purchase the raffle tickets and to be present at the dinner on Friday, June 8th, when the prize-winning tickets will be drawn. 

Starting on Thursday, June 7th, all participants in the Forum will have the opportunity to purchase as many tickets as desired at a price of CRC6,000 (or equivalent in other currencies) each.  The more tickets you purchase, the greater your chances of winning one of the prizes. You will be able to purchase tickets at any time between Thursday and Friday evening. On Friday evening, the winners will be drawn and announced immediately.

In keeping with the tradition of the Forum Raffle, the proceeds of the sale of tickets will be donated to a charity. This year, the beneficiary of the Costa Rica raffle will be “ECOENTREPRENEURSHIP ”. For more details click here.
