A raffle is an activity in which participants buy a chance to win an item or service. For example, if I ask you to pay $1.00 for a ticket, which will be placed in a jar, among several others, from which one will be randomly selected for a prize of an iPad, this is a raffle.
If you plan to organize a raffle, you must apply for a raffle license from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office at least thirty days prior to your event.
Placing names in a bowl for a chance to win a prize, and no money is exchanged, is a door prize drawing.
At Georgia Tech, door prizes are permitted and do not need approval.Door Prize Drawings
In addition to contacting local vendors for inflatables and novelty items, Georgia Tech students and staff can reserve a variety of fun activities from the Funshop, maintained by the Residence Hall Association.
An updated inventory list is maintained on their website, which includes items such as karaoke machines, board games, lawn games, and popcorn and snow cone machines.
For outdoor fun, the Campus Recreation Center rents a variety of game equipment for daily or extended use. Visit their website for a list of available equipment and costs.
