Raffle offers chance to win Royal Enfield C-5

A private Arizona school is raffling off a new Royal Enfield C-5 motorcycle. Tickets are $25 and the school says only 1,000 will be sold. You can line up for tickets on the school web site at this link, but they have to call you to get your credit card information.

Proceeds benefit The Caepe School in Anthem, Ariz. It is a private, nonprofit school serving the Anthem area, and was founded in 2008. (Anthem is a newly developed community 34 miles north of Phoenix.) Contest rules state that you must be 18 years old to participate and the winner should allow up to six weeks from the date of the drawing, Nov. 12, for delivery. The raffle is open to legal residents of the U.S., excluding California.

Winners need not be present to win and will be notified by phone, the school says. The winner will have 90 days to claim their prize.

The winner is responsible for any/all income tax liability and since this is a raffle, your tickets do not count as charitable deductions. Should the raffle have inadequate ticket sales, a 50/50 raffle will be conducted in lieu of prizes, the rules say.

I learned of the raffle on the Classic Motorworks Forum, but U.S. importer Kevin Mahoney says that Classic Motorworks is not sponsoring the raffle. The C-5 is the newest Royal Enfield model, just introduced into the U.S. and is the top-of-the-line Royal Enfield. Suggested retail price is $6,850.
