Last chance to enter the Brickset raffle

Posted by ,
Mr Gold

Today's your last chance to enter the raffle! There's a huge prize pool, including Mr. Gold, and all proceeds are going to be used for buying LEGO for childrens' hospital wards in the UK, USA, Australia, and now also Spain and Sweden, thanks to local Bricksetters.

kevbags has just let me know that we're well on the way to raising £3000, which is a fantastic achievement!

He'll be accepting entries up until 11pm (GMT+1) this evening. Tickets cost just £1 (multiple tickets allowed), payment via PayPal to [email protected]. Please include your Brickset name (main site or forum) in the comments and use 'I'm sending money to family or friends' or the 'gift' option so we are not throwing money away on fees, or if that option is not available in your country, please add a little more to cover them. Please do not mention 'raffle' in the payment text.

Update: entry is now closed. Over £4500, US$6800 was raised! Stay tuned for more information!

Cilver Cedric is made up from parts from 4816, 4817, 4818 and 4819. With that prize you will receive all 4 sealed sets. If you have tickets of course :-)

Oh no, i think I wrote raffle in the text box when I sent in my payment. Has that caused problems for you guys receiving the money? Please let me know if I need to change anything to help.

Hi,

I am really sorry bout mentioning raffle on the payment text. I wan't thinking much when I wrote it. Sorry again!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think I mentioned raffle too so apologies for that. Does Paypal make a fuss then if it's a raffle?

Kev, bit late catching up with this but have now entered. Hope we get to the £3k!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ ditto! Thanks for the reminder and money on its way to a good cause. Well done Kevin for organising it all!

Indeed, thanks for the reminder; it overhauled me into joining. I'm of course hoping for a nice price to win, but I guess a 15GBP donation to a hospital's children's ward is never a bad thing, so either way I'm pleased with myself I entered :)
A very nice thing to organize!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would have forgot! Anyway, just entered! May the best fan win!

Will the winners be sent an email or will they be on a future post? Also, when will we know if we won?

By in Australia,

What do you mean 'if' we won?
You mean when will we know 'what' we won :)

huw, what if I lived in the USA? can I still enter?

Gravatar
By in United States,

^Yes you can (and should).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any idea when we'll know who the winners are?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just an update guy's and girl's for non forum readers. Entries closed last night and the total exceeded £4500. The exact amount still needs to be verified but I'm sure you will agree its a fantastic amount.

The first winner will be drawn tonight. That person will then be emailed to select their prize. Once selected an announcement will be made and the remaining prizes will be drawn.

I have 0.11% of the tickets in the draw, not liking those odds

Fantastic job!

By in United States,

Great Job on the amount of money that you have raised! Great idea for the draw! Good luck to everyone else out there who has bought a ticket!

By in Netherlands,

Would have loved to win a mr. gold, but looking back at my history of luck at raffles, I don't even try to get in anymore.
Besides that, congratulations for bringing up so much money for charity.

Gravatar
By in United States,

When does the drawing take place?

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Great job organising the event, and a good idea too! Hope to win something, but it's good enough for beeing part of a charity-program! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Based on the forum, the drawing has occured.

Top prize chosen was Mr. Gold.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Winners not posted? I suppose if we won, we'd know by now?

Oh well - good cause.

Fred67 - Click on the "huge prize pool" link in the article, it will take you to the thread where winners are announced. Page 9 onwards.

By in Gibraltar,

Does it seem too much coincidence that all the winners are also all forum members?
(statistically this is totally possible of course and I'm glad this raised a lot of money)
Just wondering if the raffle was only for forum members which is not the impression I got from reading the original blurb.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just a quick update on the winners. A full list will be published when the draw is complete. All winners were posted in an @forum style but I know for a fact that two winners were not Brickset members at all. Not main site or forum

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Emails will be sent to winners today but don't forget there are some great prizes still remaining and I'll try and work on a surprise for later. Apologies if announcements don't come as quick as people would like. Everyone is working really hard on the raffle itself but also in negotiations with hospitals to find out the things that they would love to have. The wheels they are a turning :-)

By in United Kingdom,

All of last nights winners have been now been notified by email :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Congrats to the winners!

By in United Kingdom,

Good morning. Plenty of fun and games on the forum again last night. All prizes have now been drawn and the latest winners will be contacted today. I'll put together a full list of winners for @Huw to post later
