2022 Ultimate Bass Adopt A Family Fundraiser Raffle

THIS IS THE BIG ONE- A couple rods, several reels and great tackle to be had.

Prize order and amount subject to change, I'm still taking a few things...maybe?

It's time to kick off the Annual Ultimate Bass Adopt A Family Fundraiser Raffle. This is not the mini's we've been running all year, this one has the great prizes in it!!!

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 at Christmas. Our tenth annual means so far, we've helped 11 (last year we helped two) families over the past 10 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, with your (everyone here at Ultimate Bass) support, we raised enough money to help two families. Both families had babies in very severe danger of not surviving and your funds help them in ways we can't imagine.

Baby Cole
Baby Remington

Two years ago our fundraising helped a family who's mother/wife had ocular cancer which spread severely. She was receiving treatments three states away. The drive back and forth was financially impossible on top of all the medical bills. There is much more to their story, here's a link to the video of when we presented the funds Presenting Adopt A Family to the Ivie's https://youtu.be/faINl3mIXoI

Meet this years Adopt A Family Khadees and Katie. They are in dire need of our help, dad hasn't been able to work for a long time and has recently had major surgery. Let's get together and show them what the bass fishing community can do!!!!
 
Let’s get to the raffle... I always want to start in October sometimes but never do  ~b~

Tickets are your basic Raffle Ticket. Ticket cost:

IF YOU BUY TICKETS VIA PAY PAL or VENMON PLEASE 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 or Venmo. 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 for both Venmo and PayPal is mike at ultimatebass.com

I will message you the numbers of your tickets. You'll need to hang onto these numbers. On December 16th 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 are still taking applications at this time please submit a small write up about the family and their needs to myself, FD, or Capt. Bassinlou

How to Pay for Tickets

Mailing Address for checks

Ultimate Bass
C/O Adopt a Family
5422 Amber Circle

Pay Pal and Venmo:
First and foremost, save everyone the fees and send funds as "Friends and Family"
Mike@Ultimatebass.com
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 and prizes 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.

Shout out to Smallie_Stalker as he always gets a bunch of tickets and has started.

Bassmedic46 is racking up his donations as well with another

You guys ROCK!!!

We need to get going on this guys, It may seem like Christmas is a long way off but we will need to have this wrapped up in just six weeks or so, so we can present the funds!!!

Dig deep this year, I know we are all stretched thin but think about those that aren't making...

Folks please find a way to save twenty dollars and buy some tickets. A weeks worth of Starbucks on the way to work is $50. I used to buy a soda on the way to work. That's $2 a day $10 a week. Most of us spend small amounts of money every day like it's nothing, the folks we help out can't put food on the table because they are keeping the heat on....

It's not hard to find a few dollars. We do have a family. I'm working on the bio and will get it posted. I promise, they can use all the coffee and soda money you spend between now and the middle of next month.

It's not hard to find a few dollars, I know everyone is eyeing those Black Friday deals, just think this family can't even open the flyer because they are more worried about food and utilities.

I just posted five brand-new LH baitcasters in the Classifieds, and the funds received will go to Mike for AAF... These are lower-end reels, but would make a GREAT addition to a newer fisherman's arsenal. There you go.

I have been trying with Venmo for around a week to send more but every time I have tried it says declined. I have been working with Mike on a work around and today he says he got it!  :shocking:
Now I am concerned since every time it said declined, yet now we know at least 1 went through. I am wondering how many of approximately 30 attempts of it saying declined actually went through!!!! This wasnt a $20 attempt either.  :surrender:
