  • Tickets may be reserved on chicagogaelicpark.com/product/gaelic-park-house-raffle/
  • Tickets may be reserved for $100 each.
  • A ticket represents a chance to win the opportunity to accept an offer of the stated prize. All sales of tickets are final, and no refunds will be paid.
  • The IRS has ruled that a payment for a raffle ticket is a tax-deductible charitable contribution only to the extent the payment amount exceeds the ticket price.
  • Division of a prize by a group purchasing a ticket shall be the sole responsibility of the person named on that ticket, should that ticket be selected as a winner.
The Prize

The winner may elect to accept ownership of the Mount Greenwood House (10428 S. Sawyer Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60655) OR a cash prize of $450,000.00. Any required tax withholding amounts will be withheld by Sponsor from the total prize amount.

The Drawing

The winning ticket will be selected by a random drawing on March 24, 2024. The date of the raffle drawing is subject to all laws, regulations and Acts of God that would render it illegal, unreasonable or impractical. Ticket purchasers need not be present to win.

  • The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of valid raffle tickets sold. The chances of winning are based on the number of tickets sold.
Taxes/Prize Restrictions
  • All federal/state/local income taxes are the sole responsibility of the winner.
  • If the Mount Greenwood House is the chosen prize, the winner also assumes all fees and financing costs (including, but not limited to, closing costs, title insurance, and transfer tax and fees) which must be paid when the house is transferred to the winner.
  • The winner of the Gaelic Park House Raffle agrees that the value of the property reported by Sponsor for income tax and other purposes will be based on the written appraisal obtained by Sponsor from a licensed appraiser. Sponsor does not guarantee that a winner who receives a house will be able to sell it for the appraisal value or that the Internal Revenue Service will use that value in its tax calculations.
Release and Limitation of Liability

Each winner hereby releases and holds Sponsor harmless with respect to any claims related to the Raffle. A raffle entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of duty or conduct related to the Raffle shall be limited to the return of the purchase price paid for his or her raffle tickets. In no event shall Sponsor be liable to any person for any loss or injuries to earnings, profits or goodwill, or for any incidental, special, punitive or, consequential, or other damages of any person or entity whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, arising out of the Raffle, use or ownership of the prizes.
