What are some tips to doing this successfully:

  • Instead of selling individually, staple 5 tickets into one package and sell a package of 5 tickets for $20.
  • If your chapter decides to prepay the 30% of your total sales by the first deadline, Feb 3, 2020, your chapter essential have more time to sell and still benefit from the 70% benefit.
  • Your Chapter can turn in stubs at VDH7 but prefer to receive them at VEYM Office by 6/15/2020.

What if my chapter is unable to sell at all or some amount?

Please contact Tr. Biên Nguyễn, bien.nguyen@veym.net for instruction on returning unsold tickets.

What happen if I don’t return the unsold tickets?

To prevent fraudulent use of our VEYM 7 raffle tickets for personal gain, chapters are held accountable for the cost of all un-returned tickets.

Thank you much for your support and we look forward to seeing you at VDH7.
