Official Rules & Regulations

By participating, you agree that:

These Official Rules & Regulations govern the conduct of the raffle and, together with the decisions of LEXINGTON CONCOURS, INC (Hereinafter “Keeneland Concours”) are binding on everyone who purchases a raffle ticket and/or who is named on a raffle ticket.  The Keeneland Concours d’ Elegance Car Raffle is a fundraising activity in support of the KENTUCKY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL conducted by Keeneland Concours. These Official Contest Rules may not be waived, modified or supplemented unless such waiver, modification or supplementation is made in writing by Keeneland Concours.

GRAND PRIZE DRAWING: The Grand Prize drawing for the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance Car Raffle will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019, at approximately 4:00 p.m. at the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance event on the awards ramp directly in front of the Keene Entertainment Center at Keeneland Race Course, 4201 Versailles Rd., Lexington, Kentucky, except this date and all other dates stated in these rules may be extended at the absolute discretion of the Keeneland Concours. Ticket requests by mail, email or on line must be received before 5:00 p.m. EDT Thursday, July 18, 2019. Tickets may be purchased at the event until approximately 3:45 PM EDT, July 20, 2019.  Tickets may sell out before that time. Enderle & Romans PLLC an independent accounting firm located in Lexington, Kentucky will conduct all drawings under the supervision of Keeneland Concours. The winning ticket will be drawn at random from a drum containing all eligible raffle tickets. The drawings for prizes are open to the public; however, the winner does not need to be present to win.

The price per ticket is $100.00. A maximum of 1,200 will be sold. Ticket sales will cease when the maximum number of qualified entries is reached. Any requests and payments received following the cut off time or after the sale of 1200 tickets will be returned to the sender. If fewer than 600 raffle tickets are sold, the Keeneland Concours reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to substitute 50% of the gross sales revenue from the tickets sold as of the time of the entry deadline as the prize in lieu of the car. The ratio of prizes to tickets is approximately 1 to 1,200 if all tickets are sold.

GRAND PRIZE: Keeneland Concours does not undertake to give advice on the legal or tax consequences of the raffle, or its winner.  However, it understands that the IRS position is that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts, and consequently do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.

The Grand Prize winner assumes and must pay all fees and charges (including, but not limited to, tags and license), income taxes, local, state and federal taxes when the car is transferred to the winner. In addition, all costs of car ownership, such as (without limitation) insurance, are the Grand Prize winner’s sole responsibility. Keeneland Concours assumes no responsibility for a prizewinner’s tax obligations and suggests you consult your tax advisor.  Forms W-2G & 941 will be filed with the Internal Revenue Service to report the value of the prize won. The winner will also receive a copy of these forms. This offer is void where prohibited by law and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.

The Grand Prize winner is strongly advised to seek professional legal or tax advice. Award of the Grand Prize could have material adverse consequences on the Grand Prize winner including without limitation, with respect to taxes, income, government entitlements or other benefits, or other legal, financial or other matters. The Grand Prize is a 2019 Porsche Boxster, to be purchased at Blue Grass MotorSport, Louisville, KY. Depictions of the car shown in informational materials on the Keeneland Concours website and elsewhere can be found on Porsche.com.
