Why go to a Meat Raffle?
Trust me, I had the same questions you did from the very start. Why should I go to a meat raffle…..? This doesn’t sound like a good time…….How can winning a package of bacon be fun?
Well I tell you what people…these things are so addictive that I created this website to make sure that everyone is aware of these and has a chance to go!!!
For me, it all started after a 6 month pestering from a close friend in South Buffalo.
They bugged me for months to go to a meat raffle….and I told them all the thoughts from above. There is no way I am going to this……and I am not alone.
Many of the people that come with me currently had the same opinions. But once you go to the first one, I guarantee that you will be hooked!!!
It really does have something for everyone.
You are providing money to an organization that could certainly use it. If you have a gambling itch, you can make the most out of a cheap night out.
Free beer is always a bigger draw for some of the younger crowds.
All things considered, I wish I knew about these things in college.
And lastly, you can win meat.
I am not saying I have a perfect strategy on things, but I can tell you this…….the 40 dollars that is usually spent at a typical raffle, I would have spent at the bar anyways……and I got more beer.
Bringing in your own snacks like taco dips, cheese / deli trays or whatever you please is widely accepted and encouraged. ( This is where coming with a crowd really starts to help! )
Certain nights, I can fill half the freezer.
In the heyday of my meat raffle outings…..I didn’t pay for a piece of meat at a grocery store for over a year.
Did this require a standup freezer……yes
Did this pressure me to buy a vacuum sealer…no…..but only because we got one for the holidays
Did I get some awesome winnings throughout the time…..you bet!
I haven’t bought a turkey for thanksgiving in 3 years!!!!!
Browse through the website.
Check the calendar for the next upcoming raffle…..
And for organizations looking to find a new fundraiser, please ask me any questions about getting one of these events setup for you.
They are a great cash grab for a one night event!
