During the Party in Parrot-dise
The “Mega-Raffle Extravaganza” is a reverse raffle, meaning that players are eliminated as the numbers are called and the final number wins. There are only 200 tickets available for $10 each. For only $10 you get a 1 in 200 chance to win prizes in excess of $1000 including a walk in Aviary provided by Centurion Cages.
When only five numbers remain, their holders will be invited on stage where they will have the chance to sell their tickets to the highest bidder. After bids are made another ticket is drawn and the process continues until only two tickets are left. The remaining two contestants will have a final chance to decide to sell or hold their tickets and the final drawing will take place. The last ticket is the winner.
These reverse raffles are very entertaining and provide an evening of suspense and revelry. You can buy tickets when you register for Parrot Festival, at the Conference or at the NPRPF Online Store. We hope that you enjoy this year's Party in Parrot-dise.
YOU MAY ATTEND THE PARTY IN PARROT-DISE WITH THE PURCHASE OF A MEGA-RAFFLE TICKET IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED FOR THE ENTIRE CONFERENCE.
YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN.
