Press Release - August 18th, 2022
The Noblesville High School (NHS) Band Boosters announced today a printing error with their 2022 Pot of Gold raffle tickets. The Boosters are a non-profit group of NHS volunteer parents who raise funds exclusively in support of the high school’s band programs. The raffle is a major fundraiser organized each year by the Boosters.
While only a small number of tickets were misprinted, the error impacts the overall integrity of the raffle. To ensure every supporter has a fair chance of winning, the Boosters have implemented the following protocols to address this issue:
Original tickets will no longer be used at the drawing
Newly designed and renumbered tickets have been printed with a new company
The new vendor has internal controls to ensure each ticket holder has a chance to win a prize through a random drawing
In-person and online options will be offered to exchange or refund sales for tickets purchased previously
Supporters who purchased a 2022 Pot of Black and Gold Raffle ticket between July 1st, 2022 and August 18th, 2022, should NOT THROW AWAY TICKETS and should follow this process, choosing the best option for them:
Bring ticket(s) in person to a Booster booth location for new tickets or a refund. (Locations can be found by visiting NoblesvilleBand.org/Raffle)
Complete and submit an online form to claim new tickets or a refund by visiting NoblesvilleBand.org/Raffle
“We regret the inconvenience this printing error caused,” said Amanda Sheets, Noblesville High School Band Booster president. “The new printer has worked with us to make sure tickets are printed and distributed correctly and the integrity of our raffle remains intact. We want to thank the community for their understanding, patience and continued support of NHS Band as we work to correct this unfortunate situation.”
The winning 2022 Pot of Black and Gold 50/50 Raffle ticket will be drawn & announced on October 5th, 2022 live on Facebook/NoblesvilleBandRaffle. The winning ticket number will be posted on our website (NoblesvilleBand.org/Raffle) for 30 days after the drawing.
