Post by: Mike Cork on November 02, 2020, 12:51:59 PM
2020 Ultimate Bass Adapt A Family Raffle

It’s that time again!!! Time to kick off the Ultimate Bass Adopt A Family Raffle.
A quick synopsis for those that weren’t part of Ultimate Bass last year. Ultimate Bass holds a raffle to raise money for a family in need each year. So far, we've helped 8 families over the past 8 Holiday Seasons. These families typically had extreme medical bills preventing a joy filled holiday season. However, a couple of our recipients simply were families who had fallen on very hard times.

Last year's recipient was a lady in west Texas that had was in dire need, the church was trying to help but things were spiraling out of control. To read here story check out last years raffle, her bio is in the first post (http://www.ultimatebass.com/bass-fishing-forum/index.php?topic=149295.msg1661207#msg1661207)

Two years ago we were able to help the grandchildren of Lipripper. The were trying to raise his Great Grandchildren in the heart of Chicago and were in a bad way. With winter on top of them, they were fighting to keep their jobs, Mom and Dad were taking turns toting the kids back and forth to day care on a bike with a wagon just to keep working... Lots to their story you can read here CLICK HERE (http://www.ultimatebass.com/bass-fishing-forum/index.php?topic=148851.msg1656707#msg1656707)

This years family:
Meet this years Adopted Family - the whole story (http://www.ultimatebass.com/bass-fishing-forum/index.php?topic=153664.msg1709600#msg1709600)

Tickets are your basic Raffle Ticket. Ticket cost:

IF YOU BUY TICKETS VIA PAY PAL PUT YOUR SCREEN NAME IN THE NOTES SECTION

1 ticket for $5
5 tickets for $20
30 tickets for $100


I will be tracking ticket purchases like always. Many times we are not able to spend $100 at a time to get the bonus tickets. If you buy $100 worth of tickets over a series of purchases I will give you the extra tickets to equal thirty with the purchase that takes you over $100. So if you buy 5 sets of $20 that gets you 25 tickets and I will kick in the extra five tickets to make the 30.

We take all forms of money but prefer Pay Pal. Make sure to send funds via "Friends and Family". You can mail a check (please let me know it's coming), did I say we prefer Pay Pal, and if you want to use a CC we can send you a Pay Pal invoice that you can pay without having a Pay Pal account. See the bottom of the post for further information.

I also take Venmo as of this year my email is mike at ultimatebass.com

I will message you the numbers of your tickets. You'll need to hang onto these numbers. On December 17th we will draw the winners and post the ticket numbers. We will do the drawing on Facebook Live to ensure the integrity of the raffle. (You do not have to have Facebook in order to win, winning numbers will be published on the Ultimate Bass forums) I will also write your screen name on the back of your tickets so we'll know who won what on drawing night.

The funds recipient - We have a family in works, we are still vetting their needs through their local church. Once that's complete I will post as much as I can about them without violating their privacy.


How to Pay for Tickets


Mailing Address:

Ultimate Bass
C/O Adopt a Family
5422 Amber Circle
Benton La 71006

Pay Pal address

First and foremost, save everyone the fees and send funds as "Friends and Family"

Please put your “SCREEN NAME” and “Adopt a Family” in the notes section.

Credit Card

Our only option here is to send you an invoice via Pay Pal, you do not have to have a Pay Pal account to pay the invoice. However, there is a 3% surcharge and since this is a fund raiser, I'll split it with you.

Disclaimer: We have to have one so here it goes. All rules of this raffle are subject to change by site administration. Ultimate Bass is not responsible for the delivery of prizes; however we will provide our best efforts to ensure winners receive their prizes in a timely manner.

Just a note to thank everyone that has been able to buy tickets. For those that haven't, please consider just $20, it gets you five changes at some amazing prize packages, and that same $20 can put three days worth of food on the table for a family. $20 makes a mean pot of gumbo, chili, or stew that can be reheated. There are so many families out there that need this help.

Just want to remind everyone that just a $20 donation can win you some amazing prizes, and better yet can put food on the table or presents under the tree for a needy family. Save your coffee or soda money for a week and send it in, you're a winner right out the gate for helping a family in need but you might be a prize winner as well.

The best gift you can give yourself during the holiday season is helping others. Putting a smile on someone's face that truly needs a helping hand. The Adopt a Family Fundraiser does just that. We can put food on the table or presents under the tree for a needy family. Save your coffee or soda money for a week and send it in, you're a winner right out the gate for helping a family in need but you might be a prize winner as well.

Thank you everyone who's been able to give, you all are the greatest. For those still thinking about buying tickets, I know this year is going to be hard to dig deep with all that we have going on. But the way I see it, if I can still read the forum then my bills are being paid, and I can afford to help someone that has to decide between food and the electric bill.

Again thank you to everyone who's given  ~c~ to those that haven't yet? Please consider it, we need your support. And you could win a great prize!!!

Thank You everyone we are rocking on! We only have a couple weeks left so lean on your friends and neighbors. I apologize for not having the family bio posted yet but it will be soon and I promise this years family desperately needs our help, not that years previous didn't but this year is going to change lives yet again. 

So collect the soda money and coffee money instead of spending it and send it in for raffle tickets so you can win big!!!

For those still thinking about buying tickets, I know this year is going to be hard to dig deep with all that we have going on. But the way I see it, if I can still read the forum then my bills are being paid, and I can afford to help someone that has to decide between food and the electric bill.

Thank You everyone we are rocking on! We only have a couple weeks left so lean on your friends and neighbors. I apologize for not having the family bio posted yet but it will be soon and I promise this years family desperately needs our help, not that years previous didn't but this year is going to change lives yet again. 

So collect the soda money and coffee money instead of spending it and send it in for raffle tickets so you can win big!!!

For those still thinking about buying tickets, I know this year is going to be hard to dig deep with all that we have going on. But the way I see it, if I can still read the forum then my bills are being paid, and I can afford to help someone that has to decide between food and the electric bill.

Again thank you to everyone who's given  ~c~ to those that haven't yet? Please consider it, we need your support. And you could win a great prize!!!

A cup of coffee on the way to work from your favorite donut shop or coffee house will add up to well over $20 in a week, I know you can suffer through regular coffee from the house for a week... :-*

We have exactly two weeks left, dig deep. I know it's a tough year but we needs everyone's support. If you have a UB buddy that's not on the list above, send them a message and ask them why? They may not have thought to give and you ringing their bell will shake $20 out of them. $20 is a tank of gas, or a meal for our family this year.

The wife in the family has ocular cancer that has spread to her liver. She has to travel out of state for treatments. She is a school teacher and her husband is in a career field devastated by the virus lockdowns and he's out of work. They have two children who won't see a Christmas this year without our help!!

Here is a quick Bio, I'm still trying to get more details but will have to be very careful not to invade the families privacy.

Mom has ocular cancer that has spread to her liver. She has to travel out of state for treatments. She was a school teacher and hasn't been able to work for quite some time. Her husband is in a career field devastated by the virus lockdowns and he's out of work. They have two children who won't see a Christmas this year without our help!!


I know we can make a huge difference in this families life for the holidays. A group of stinky bass fisherman can pull together and do amazing things when we want to.... Let's "want to" and make this a Christmas to remember for this family.

This morning I had an idea.  Insert joke here....

Anyway, I'm always impressed by the giving of this group and decided to try to get my other circle of friends involved. So I composed this email and sent it to my work buddies.

All,


As everyone on this list knows, I am an avid freshwater fisherman.  What you may not know is that I'm heavily involved in an online bass fishing community called Ultimate Bass.  What I'm sure you don't know is that every year we adopt a family in dire need and make sure that the children have a Christmas that they certainly would not have otherwise had.  These families are nominated and vetted to ensure that the money will be handled in an appropriate manner.


You have been included in this email because you are an upstanding member of the Florida Construction community in some way and I value you as a friend.  I also know you have $20, $50, $100, $500 to spare to help a family that is less fortunate than you are.


This years family - 2020 Adopt a Family


The raffle and prizes - 2020 Raffle


Depending on your browser, these links may show up as "Unsecure", I assure you they are safe to click.


What the prize list may not yet show is a custom FDx Rod I'm going to build that would have a retail price in excess of $500.  Anyone who has seen the Make a Wish prize rods that I build will have seen one very close to it.



If I have guilted you enough and would like to participate, it's very easy.  All you have to do is respond to this email with the amount you want to give.  I will make the contribution on your behalf and collect the money from you later.  If you win a prize I will deliver it to you in person.  If you know someone who you think would like to participate, please forward this email to them.


Thanks for reading, this is very important to me and I hope I can count on you to participate.

What happened next was the surprising part, they have responded with an impressive giving attitude.  This is an example of the responses I'm getting.

Lee,

Put me down for $100.  I think its amazing what you are doing and I appreciate the fact that you thought to include me.


Ben


So my point is this.  The UB family is a giving group, but it is likely that your friends are also of a giving nature.  Most people want to help others they just aren't aware of the opportunities to do so.

Cut and paste all or parts of my email and get your other circle of friends involved.

In the 5 hours or so since I sent the email,, FD's Friends have committed $1620 to the fund just because I asked.

Now, go ask your friends...

Lee this is an incredible idea. I know I have asked everyone to hit up their friends but I was thinking more of a travel around the city, work place, or make phone calls. This is a very simple and quick way to reach them all at once!!!

Folks, we all have a circle, and in these circles there are people willing to help families in trouble during the holidays. A quick email to your circles change the outlook for Joseph, Kathy and their kids this holiday season.

We have a couple from Facebook get in on the action Todd Meyers, Trey Harold, and Amy Gunn, thank you sirs and Ma'am you guys are a blessing for our adopted family.

Now to the UB members who continue to always help out. No Excuses, FLAbassin, Bassmanstan, and Flatsnbay. This program goes nowhere without amazing members like you. Thank You.

We are right at a week out. Unfortunately we have to stop at some point and give the funds to the family so they can have a wonderful Christmas. So next Friday the 18th at 6 PM Central Time we will close and start the drawing.

If you've not read about our adopted family, please take a minute and see their story here
http://www.ultimatebass.com/bass-fishing-forum/index.php?topic=153664.msg1709600#msg1709600 (http://www.ultimatebass.com/bass-fishing-forum/index.php?topic=153664.msg1709600#msg1709600)
They are in a dire place.

So collect the soda money and coffee money instead of spending it and send it in for raffle tickets so you can win big!!!

For those still thinking about buying tickets, I know this year is going to be hard to dig deep with all that we have going on. But the way I see it, if I can still read the forum then my bills are being paid, and I can afford to help someone that has to decide between food and the electric bill.

Again thank you to everyone who's given  ~c~ to those that haven't yet? Please consider it, we need your support. And you could win a great prize!!!

Having a mildly aggressive personality,  ~roflmao, I sent another email to my list thanking the ones who had contributed and gently reminding those who haven't yet that they still have time.  Below is a copy of the email.


All,

I just wanted to thank everyone for their support so far.  Your willingness to help others is exactly what I expected and it makes me proud to call you my friends. 


The following was posted on UltimateBass.com yesterday by the gentleman that came up with this 9 years ago. He will not take credit for it, but the Adopt a Family program was all his idea.



The 2020 Adopt a Family Raffle

Folks, some of you new members don't know me but I'm one of the old guys here and want to give y'all some background on what this program started out as, our idea at the beginning and the inner workings...

We started this, hoping to raise a few hundred dollars to help out needy members here on UB and to say the least it has grown above and beyond what any of us thought it would!

Starting off, we didn't expect much, I remember talking with Cork and both saying if we make $500 bucks we would be proud and it would really help someone in need, our first year we went well over $1K

Through the years, we search for people in our UB online family for those in dire need, honestly we look for people that are about to lose it all, and not by their choices but due to life itself!  A few years back we stretched out to people our staff may know or someone they know that is truly in dire need.

To say Adopt a Family has changed lives is truly an understatement!  It's done more than that, it's made life worth living, saved lives, fulfilled God's plan!

As the program gets older and new members come on board we again see just how great people can be.  We have some members that go above and beyond to make this work and literally change the lives of the family that we choose!

Each year, new people find a way to give, donate prizes, match funds, give again and again...and I can guarantee nobody has ever gave a thought to the prizes when they send the $$

Ultimatebass.com members --- THIS IS UB!   

There will be a follow up thread about the family after they have received what YOU donated, you'll really want to read that and get ready for a few tears of joy because YOU helped it come true.

We have staff members that go way beyond and without them this would not be possible!

Mike Cork - probably the hardest thing he works on pertaining to UB all year
Lipripper - without his outreach, just no way this program would be what it is each year
FD - his donations and help in the last few years have literally changed lives more than we could imagine

I know there are more that I'm missing, but these guys have really done an awesome job with Adopt A Family!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank EACH and EVERY one of you for your donations, your willingness to help us change the lives of people that just got a bad deal, not by choices, but from life in general!

Thank YOU!!

Lee Smith 


2020 Adopt a Family Raffle

The Family we are helping




For those who haven't contributed yet, there is still time.  Just respond to this email with the amount you want to give and I'll make the donation on your behalf and collect the money from you later.  But we have to move quickly. My deadline to get the money in is Friday the 18th.  This gives us enough time to get the money to the family before Christmas.




I'm posting this just to show you how easy it is to get people to part from their money if you give them a good reason and an effortless way to do it.

My morning email reminder has generated 3 more donations.

People want to help, just ask them to participate...

Time for a big shout out to those we will call "FD's Friends". Because they don't have screen names and we don't want to put personal info out there we'll use FD and initials.

FD-CV 
FD-GA 
FD-RTh
FD-WD
FD-RLf 
FD-BV 
FD-TO
FD-FG
FD-SS
FD-BS
FD-PP
FD-MP
FD-JS
FD-JC

I can't thank each of you (FD's Friends) enough for your generous support. As the FD's Friends group you have helped us achieve our annual goal and are looking to set records. I am speechless in a way to show our gratitude, ask anyone - shutting me up is hard to do as I love my soap box.

You all have dug deep for an organization you didn't know until FD told you about us, the generosity is unlike I've seen except here on Ultimate Bass. Our members are the same way, so that means each of you, even if you don't fish, would fit right in here and we'd love to have you join our family (I know a cheap membership plug... that's the soap box setting in)

Just wanted to say THANK YOU!

The generosity of bass anglers is truly amazing.

If you haven't got your ticket numbers yet please give me some time. My hand is cramped up after filling out the FD Friends Group :surrender:

All UB members have just been issued a last minute challenge....

Ultimate Bass Adopt a Family has just had an anonymous donation of $400. This member does not want the tickets but wants to challenge our members to match his $400. Does not have to be all at once, you can get a piece or all of it, from this point forward until it runs out, each ticket purchase will get this persons tickets until his $400 worth of tickets are gone..

So if you
buy $20 worth of tickets, you'll get your 5 and the anonymous 5.
buy $100 worth of tickets, you'll get your 30 and the anonymous 30.
and so on until we've sold the matching $400 worth of tickets.

Going to make for a tracking nightmare for me LOL but let's meet this challenge :toot:

The double tickets are all spent....

I'm overwhelmed at the support this year, I wish I could shake the hands of all our members. I'm constantly reminded as to how kind hearted anglers are. When or where there is a need, bass anglers will step up and UB members step up big, THANK YOU...

I will get things updated as fast as I can....

Double tickets went too
BassinKorea
BHenke
Bigjim5589
apenland01

and one more that is going to get a few before the matching runs out... I need to figure out their screen name to give them credit.

We are rocking right along with several last minutes donations. The generosity is flowing So let's not stop now...

We are $350 from our next landmark. I know I never tell you guys what the final numbers are until it's over. I guess it's my way of generating a big reveal. Let me say we are doing great this year and if we make the last $350 in the next couple days, we might set a record that will be hard to beat  ~bb

HEY ANONYMOUS donor, your money was matched in about 18 hours, our members have accepted and beat your challenge sir!!! Thank you Mr. Anonymous and thank you to the UB members, it's this kindness that makes our UB Family such a great place.

If I've missed adding your name to this list please send me a message so I can make sure everything is correct. I've probably just forgot you here but we need to make sure you get your tickets if it's something else.

They are in a dire place.

So collect the soda money and coffee money instead of spending it and send it in for raffle tickets so you can win big!!!

For those still thinking about buying tickets, I know this year is going to be hard to dig deep with all that we have going on. But the way I see it, if I can still read the forum then my bills are being paid, and I can afford to help someone that has to decide between food and the electric bill.

Again thank you to everyone who's given  ~c~ to those that haven't yet? Please consider it, we need your support. And you could win a great prize!!!

One last Challenge!!! This one is not for tickets. We have had our third Mr. Anonymous and he's dug DEEP...

Mr. Anonymous III, had a tough beginning in life and was able to scratch and claw his way to a much better place. Because of this good fortune he looks for families to help out as he personally knows sometimes it takes just a little help to change everything.

Mr. Anonymous III donated, no tickets were purchased, $1000 and he is challenging anyone who has also had good fortune this year to match his donation, or maybe for a couple members to get together and match him.

Many folks told me that if they won to keep it and re-use it for the monthly Adopt A Family Raffles.... I had too much to track so if you are a winner and want to donate your prize back to Adopt A Family 2021, just let me know and I'll make it happen.

Thank you everyone for your support this year. 10,000 dollars is a lot of help, and I'm extremely proud of Ultimate Bass members and what you accomplish each year.
