Raffle tickets remain for Royal Enfield C5

A raffle for a new Royal Enfield C5 motorcycle is not sold out. One thousand tickets were to be sold in the raffle for the motorcycle, which retails for $6,850.

"We've sold about 450," advised Marc C. Hayes, admissions director at The Caepe School in Anthem, Ariz. Proceeds benefit the private, nonprofit school serving the Anthem area north of Phoenix, Ariz.

The raffle is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 12.

"Many people have suggested that we extend the drawing for another month or so because of some big biker events happening the next month. We'd like to get to at least 800 tickets sold. We're realizing that 1,000 ticket is a lot," Hayes wrote me.

Extending the raffle might "offend some people, but everyone we've asked says 'Whatever raises the most money for the school,'" he wrote."

Tickets are available on line for $25 or two for $40.

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 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. Read the rules for yourself on the raffle web site.

I learned of the raffle on the Classic Motorworks Forum. The C5 is the newest Royal Enfield model, just introduced into the U.S. and is the top-of-the-line Royal Enfield.
