Special Floor Raffle at Pheasant Fest Promises A Winner for Every 50 Tickets Sold

By Tom Carpenter

Sioux Falls may not be Las Vegas, but your odds of winning are a whole lot better at the 35th Anniversary Raffle being held on the Show Floor at 2018 National Pheasant Fest and Quail Classic, being held in Sioux Falls this weekend, February 16 - 18.

“It’s very simple, pretty fun, and it’s going to raise some meaningful money for upland habitat,” says Anthony Hauck, Public Relations Director for Pheasants Forever. “Just come to Booth 1220, the special 35th Anniverary Pheasants Forever Raffle Booth, and buy a $20 ticket. A winner will be selected after each set of 50 tickets is sold. The winner comes back to the booth and chooses their prize.”

That’s where things get even more interesting.

“We’ve got a great lineup of upland and waterfowl shotguns, big game rifles, handguns and more – more than 20 firearms in all, with many top brands represented,” say Hauck. “But there are also grills, chainsaws, a Tactacam camera, a SportDOG e-collar, ORCA coolers, Browning upland clothes, Zeiss Binoculars, a $50 Reed’s Gift Card, a case of Federal Premium Prairie Storm … many great companies are providing prizes and partnering with us for conservation.”

“It’s going to be better than Christmas morning for those who get their ticket drawn,” says Hauck, “so grab a little extra cash for conservation and stop by Booth 1220 a couple times. 1 In 50 odds, your choice of great prizes, putting habitat on the ground … the 35th anniversary raffle is going to be a big winner all around.”
