# Pick A Prize Raffle (updated)

Similar to a raffle draw for a single item, a Pick-A-Prize Raffle is often a great way to get more people involved with your event by letting them compete against each other to win one of a selection of Raffle Prize Items.

First off, determine your raffle ticket sales strategy. Although the more tickets per dollar may provide your guests with perceived value and the added excitement of being able to spread their interests over many items, fewer tickets per dollar can increase the sense of providing the guests with a better chance of winning. Either way, selling your tickets in singles and/or multiple quantities for a better value per ticket offers your guests more ways to help you make your fundraiser successful.

See Run A Raffle for more details on creating and selling "raffle tickets".

# Paper Raffle Tickets Needed

Although Auctria can help you with tracking the sale of the "raffle tickets", you will still need to use some sort of Paper Raffle Tickets for your guests to make their choices with. These paper tickets are often small, and relatively inexpensive, and usually have pre-printed numbers that distinguish which tear-off ticket goes in the ticket box and which the guest should keep.


You will still have to track which guest received which ticket(s) although this is still easy to manage and use to identify the winners. The guests would purchase their raffle tickets through Auctria and get an appropriate amount of paper tickets to drop into the raffle prizes' ticket boxes.

Although Auctria does not provide a "drawing" mechanism, the idea of a "blind draw" by a keynote speaker or other important person -- or randomly picked guests? -- during the event could help generate more interest and excitement to build on.

This could even serve as intermission-style breaks during the in-person event.

# Export Individual Sales (new)

As a special case, For Sale Items have an additional Activity related option under Exporting & Printing (in the sidebar) that allows you to Export Individual Sales for the specific item as an XLS formatted file.


Clicking the button will immediately start the process and download the file in your browser.

Using the Export Individual Sales on a Raffle Ticket item will provide you with a list of buyers of that item. This list might be further reviewed and could potentially be used in a raffle "drawing" external to Auctria.
