Raffle & Auction

We are pleased to announce the Wharton Global Alumni Forum Raffle and Auction in Hong Kong on May 25-26, 2007. 

A raffle is a game of chance, in which contestants purchase tickets which give them opportunities to win excellent prizes. Winners are determined by the chance event that their raffle tickets are drawn. The only actions required by the contestants are to purchase the raffle tickets and to be present at the dinner on Saturday, May 26th, when the prize-winning tickets will be drawn. 

Starting on Friday, May 25th, all participants in the Forum will have the opportunity to purchase as many tickets as desired at a price of HK$100 (or equivalent in other currencies) each.  The more tickets you purchase, the greater your chances of winning one of the prizes. You will be able to purchase tickets at any time between Friday and Saturday evening. On Saturday evening, the winners will be drawn and announced immediately.

An auction also offers participants an opportunity to acquire excellent prizes.  However, in the case of the auction, the participants will bid live for the prizes at the dinner on Saturday, May 26th.  The highest bidder for each of the three items listed below will win.  Each prize has a starting, or minimum, bid, as indicated below.

In keeping with the tradition of the Forum Raffle, the proceeds of the sale of tickets will be donated to a charity.  This year, the beneficiary of the Hong Kong raffle will be “Save China’s Tigers”, an organization founded by Li Quan, WG’89, which works to prevent the extinction of China’s tigers.  To learn more about this worthy organization, please visit its website at http://www.savechinastigers.org.
