Cannot participate as Canadian.

To be eligible to purchase a ticket, a Ticket Holder must (a) be at least 18 years old at the time of purchase, (b) be a U.S. resident physically residing in the United States

Tickets are $200. Yikes!

Still, not a bad proposition for those with $200 to waste

Wow, they’re looking to gross $1,000,000 from this raffle and the best they could manage is a 60kWh Model S? The odds aren’t really lucrative enough given the cost of the tickets. Limiting sales to 1,000 tickets or cutting the price to $50 a ticket would likely generate a lot more interest. However, if it’s an organization you were looking to donate to anyway why not have a shot at a cool prize.

That’s a two hundreds of a percent chance per ticket.

Maybe the point is to donate to this specific cause without first considering the tax implications or the personal payback?

I hope they offer a ‘cash equivalent’ if you win, cuz you’ll have to pay huge taxes if you accept the car and keep it. Could be as much as 20-30k in taxes.

They have changed the wording on their website to say 70 instead of 60.

Also, the $200 for each ticket is not tax deductible even if they are a charity.

Raffle tickets aren’t tax deductible… I’d sell it too, wrong color. 😉

This is news? Vancouver Children’s hospital has been holding a lottery for a Tesla S 85P for a while now.

And one of the local casinos was doing the same for a while a few months ago too.
