Throughout the day we awarded prizes to nonprofits and Cardinals and Blues tickets to donors.
Prize Rules and Instructions
The size for each nonprofit is based on that organization’s annual operating budget NOT the budget for a specific program or project for which they are raising funds. Organizations that do not correctly categorize themselves will not be eligible for prize dollars.
$2,500 prize for an education related nonprofit (this does not include k-12 schools or universities/colleges)
Nonprofits cannot win more than 1 prize from each hourly drawing category.
20 in 20!
At designated times during the day there is $20,000 that will be spread over a 20 minute time period.
Any donation made during that 20 minutes will receive a "lift". This means that every donation will get a pro rata share of that $20,000. For example, in prior years, donations made during the least busy 20 in 20 received as much as 84 cents for every dollar raised. During very busy 20 in 20 times, the lift amount was 20 cents for every dollar raised.
Donations of $500 or less will receive a lift. Donations over $500 will be “lifted” based on the first $500 donated but will not receive additional lift dollars. This prevents a donor from making one large gift and taking all the lift money for one nonprofit.
Donors are eligible to win Cardinals tickets. These are pulled randomly throughout the day. The size of the gift does not factor into your odds of winning tickets. Only one set of tickets per donor.
