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

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

This years family:
Meet this years Adopted Family - the whole story
short story - Mom has ocular cancer that has spread to her liver. She has to travel out of state for treatments. Her husband is out of work due to pandemic. They have two children who won't see a Christmas this year without our help!!

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

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.

Thank you kdubracing :toot:

Folks we need everyone's support on this, just $20 goes a very long way for someone that had to spend all their money on rent and electricity.

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.

  • Too many hobbies, too little time!
When does money need to be in by?  I need to figure how much I can spare and then get the money in.
There is nothing like sharing any moment outdoors with someone special!

The cut off will be some time in mid December. I usually don't figure out the drawing date until we get closer. There is plenty of time.  :-*

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.
