Super Sunday Squares 50/50 Raffle Rules

AGREEMENT TO ABIDE BY THE RULES: By entering the Super Sunday Squares 50/50 Raffle (the “Raffle”), participants confirm that they are at least twenty-one (21) years of age, are present in Arizona at the time of ticket purchase, and have read, understand, and agree to abide by these Rules (the “Rules”).

The Raffle is conducted by and for the benefit of Meeting Professionals International Arizona Sunbelt Chapter (“MPI AZ”), a non-profit 501-c-3 corporation, active and in good standing in the State of Arizona. MPI AZ will receive fifty percent (50%) of the gross proceeds from the Raffle. Its mission is to help fund chapter educational and networking programs.

NOTICE REGARDING DISPUTE RESOLUTION: These rules contain terms that govern how claims between you and MPI AZ relating to your participation or involvement with the Raffle will be resolved. For example, section 17 below includes an arbitration agreement and waiver of a class action that requires you to submit all claims to arbitration (instead of going to court before a judge and jury) and limits your ability to bring claims only in an individual capacity (and not as part of or on behalf of any a class action or purported collective or representative claim or proceeding).

1. Questions – Questions concerning the Raffle or the Rules, or requests for the name(s) of the winner(s), should be sent by email to Inquiries regarding the Raffle, including questions about the Rules, eligibility, the odds of winning, prizes, and ticket pricing, must be submitted to prior to the purchase of ticket(s).
