The Condors Community Foundation is a non-profit organization established by the Bakersfield Condors for the purpose of hosting Condors fundraising events that benefit the community.

50/50 RAFFLE – OFFICIAL RULES

The Condors Community Foundation (“CCF”) will conduct “50/50” raffles (“Raffles”) at select Bakersfield Condors home games (“Games”).  The CCF conducts the Raffles with the permission of the Bakersfield Condors, but the CCF is solely responsible for the operations of the Raffles. A “50/50” Raffle is a raffle in which the gross sales from the Raffle are split 50 percent each between the winning ticketholder (minus any applicable withholdings) and the CCF or eligible recipient organization as defined by Penal Code section 320.3, subdivision (d)(4)(A), which uses its share of the proceeds for charitable purposes. Each Raffle, and all tickets, transactions, participants, purchasers, winners and other aspects of the Raffle, are subject to these Official Rules, California Penal Code Section 320.6, all regulations adopted pursuant thereto, and any and all other applicable laws and regulations. For additional inquiries about the Condors Community Foundation 50/50 Raffle program please email: (foundation@bakersfieldcondors.com).
