RAFFLE IS CLOSED!
WINNER WILL BE DRAWN 5PM ON SUNDAY AT BIKE MART FRISCO!
We are so excited that spring is about to arrive and we can offer our members an opportunity to win a new bicycle or other prizes. 2022 is going to be one of the busiest years STCC has had in a while and there are so many things going on. Family Rides, new classes, educational programs, our donations and interactions with local communities and of course our regular rides. The proceeds from this raffle will go a long way to progressing our efforts in education and the promotion of all aspects of cycling in our communities.
Thanks again this year to the generosity of our Platinum Sponsor, Bike Mart, for their support for this club and providing you the chance to take home a beautiful bicycle.
And what better day for us to select the winner than National Ride a Bike Day! Should your ticket be selected at the May 1 drawing, you can use this store credit to purchase the bike of your choice, or it can be used in part or in whole for merchandise at Bike Mart.
Entries will be sold online in our club store: $10 per entry, or $25 for three. Only current members of Shawnee Trail Cycling Club will be eligible to buy entries. Purchase will be available thru 10pm April 30th. Winner will be announced on National Ride a Bike Day, May 1st, also the first day of National Bike Month.
Proceeds will be used to support Shawnee Trail Cycling Club and its stated mission of Education and community Involvement.

General Rules and Purchase
Who is eligible to enter and win?
All current members of Shawnee Trail Cycling Club, except members of the Board of Directors, are eligible to enter and win prizes from our Spring Raffle.
How many entries can I purchase?
There is no limit to the number of entries you may purchase.
What will the proceeds be used for?
Proceeds will be used to support Shawnee Trail Cycling Club and its stated mission of Education and Community Involvement.
Is the raffle ticket purchase tax deductible?
The cost of a raffle ticket is not deductible as a charitable contribution. The IRS considers a raffle ticket to be a contribution from which you benefit. If you receive a benefit from making a donation, you can only deduct the amount of your donation that is greater than the value of the benefit you receive. The IRS explicitly prohibits deducting the cost of raffle tickets as a charitable contribution, presumably because it does not consider the cost of the ticket to be greater than its benefit.
What if I win and do not want one of the bicycles offered?
Bike Mart will offer you the option of converting the value of the bicycle to a store credit to be used as you wish, to purchase merchandise.
You may also decline acceptance of the bicycle and donate it back to STCC
Is the prize taxable to the winner?
You may need to report this to the IRS. STCC will provide you the necessary information with your prize.
How will the winner be selected?
Each entry purchased will be identified by the order number assigned by the STCC club store at time of purchase. Multiple entries purchased in a single order will be assigned the same order number and recipient, but will have multiple chances to win (eg. 3 entries purchased will result in 3 chances to be selected as the winner for that order number). There will be a random drawing held after the close of the raffle to select the winner.
When will the winner be selected?
The winner will be selected by random drawing on May 1, 2022.
