    That is what our guild charges, also.

    With the quilts we've done in the past, this is what we've sold them for.

    I would think twice about a $5.00 raffle ticket....and most likely not purchase. Even though $5.00 really is not that much $$ it far enough off the normal raffle tickets ( $1.00 or $2.00) that it would make me pause. The idea of other prizes .. not a big deal for me , as most likely I already have what the other prizes are such as a sewing machine. Now if the other prizes were gift certificates( for a good amount) for a LQS ... I could be swayed to a $5.00 ticket.

    This is the accepted price in our area, too.

One hundred percent of the proceeds go for research to fight this dread disease. I lost my Dad to it and my mother-in-law has it as well. Something has to be done--we can sew for a cure!

    In all the raffles I've been involved in they were always $1 each or 6 for $5. That way people usually did pay the $5.00 because they knew they were getting 6 chances to win. In fact, usually people would pay $10 for 12 tickets. It really does work better that way.

    For 1 ticket on a raffle quilt ... NO... I would not pay $5.

    I've only ever paid $1 or 6 for $5....and then another time someone had $2 or 3 for $5.

    I think people are more apt to pay the $5, to get a few entries over paying $5 for a single entry.

    My guild sells them $1 for 1 or $5 for 10. Yup, $5 for 10. The theory is that people will buy the $5 (which they do) and the ticket is only the small cost of the paper.

    Would I spend $5 for 1 ticket...only if I dearly loved the quilt or if I was donating to a specific cause. Normally I would not pay $5.

    Another organization I belong to sold tickets for $5 each and they made a lot less money than the guild who sells 10 for $5.

    Hope that helps.

    Sure would. DH gets on a football pool every week and it's $25 a square. The superbowl is $100 a square. That is just one football pool. So me buying $100 worth of raffle tickets is no big deal. At least it goes to promote a guild or charity. All quilt raffles in this area are 6 for $5.
    Got fabric?

    sorry, i agree with charity-crafter. and i am a guild member. like most we sell ours for $1 or 6 for $5. even for the chance at more prizes i would most likely balk at $5 being the only price point. maybe option of $1 for chance on one item or $5 for chance at several items might get my attention.
