New West Symphony and Ama Waterways Christmas Cruise Raffle
Terms and Conditions
Offer is based on availability and is valid for one 7-night cruise in a Category BB stateroom (balcony), based on double occupancy. Cruise is valid on the Magical Christmas Markets or Iconic Christmas Markets itineraries in 2018 or 2019. Land program, stateroom upgrades, transfers and flights may be purchased at an additional cost and will be subject to the AmaWaterways cancellation policy; please ask for details. Port charges ($182 per person) are to be paid by certificate winner. Gratuities and onboard incidentals are not included and are the responsibility of the passenger(s). This offer is not combinable with any other promotions and/or discounts; the winning certificate is non-transferable and has no cash value. The winner will be issued Form 1099 and will be responsible for any income taxes.
Only 200 tickets will be sold for this raffle. The Symphony plans to hold the raffle drawing on November 17, 2018. This date depends on all 200 tickets being sold by that date.
All entry purchases are final and non-refundable.
Entry purchases are not tax deductible as a charitable contribution. The IRS considers a raffle ticket to be a contribution from which you benefit. If you receive a benefit from making a donation, you can only deduct the amount of your donation that is greater than the value of the benefit you receive. The IRS explicitly prohibits deducting the cost of raffle tickets as a charitable contribution, presumably because it does not consider the cost of the ticket to be greater than its benefit.
The winner of the raffle will be determined by random drawing at the November 17, 2018 concert in Thousand Oaks, California. This information will also be announced on the website at www.newwestsymphony.org. Winner does not need to be present to win and will be contacted via the phone number and/or email address entered on the registration form. If time and place is changed, all purchasers will be notified electronically, telephonically or in writing.
The winner of the raffle must claim the prize within 14 days of the drawing. If the winner does not claim the prize within 14 days of the drawing, by responding to electronic, telephonic or written notice from the New West Symphony, the prize will be forfeited and a new winner drawn.
After the prize is claimed, winner must abide by any restrictions or regulations placed on the prize by AmaWaterways.
Purchasers of tickets, by participating in the raffle, release the New West Symphony Association, its directors, officers, members and agents from any and all liability, loss or claim arising out of any raffle prize, expressly waive any such claim and agree that the liability, if any, shall be limited to the raffle ticket price paid.
All disputes, claims and controversies concerning this raffle shall be submitted to and resolved by binding arbitration, to be conducted under arbitration rules in the state of California.
