2020 Apple Watch Raffle

Purchase Raffle Ticket NowHewlett Packard Enterprise kindly donated two (2) Apple Watches (Series 5 with Nike band) for a Children’s Miracle Network fundraiser! We could not be more grateful for their generosity and are excited to offer a raffle for these two watches to our employees to raise money for CMN, specifically to purchase a brand new, state-of-the-art NICU ambulance to transport critically ill infants across our large 22-county service area. Our NICU team is in desperate need of this new ambulance, and we need your help! We hope you will consider purchasing a raffle ticket, or 5, to go towards this amazing cause. This ambulance will save so many tiny lives and give infants across Southwest Georgia a chance to survive and thrive. The two winners will be announced September 18, 2020. Thank you so much for supporting our NICU patients!

Do I have to be present to win?


Since the raffle is being held by a non-profit corporation, will the purchase price of my ticket be tax deductible?

The IRS position is that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts, and consequently do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.

Will the raffle be audited?

Yes, the CPA firm of Draffin & Tucker LLP will audit the raffle.
