The Prize does not include bush flights or ground transportation, alcohol except as included in meal packages, or any other entertainment or services beyond those explicitly stated in these conditions.

UUCB is not liable for any loss, injury, death, accident, theft, illness, or other misfortune of any nature whatsoever incurred during this trip or resulting from it. By accepting airline tickets or any other portion of the Prize, the Winner releases UUCB, its employees, trustees, agents, and attorneys from any and all obligations to the Winner and any and all claims or causes of action that may exist against UUCB, known or unknown, as well as any such obligations, claims, or causes of action arising from the Winner’s acceptance of the Prize.

The IRS takes the position that no portion of the ticket price will qualify as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes.
Net proceeds will be applied as follows: Any unused balance of the $5000 prize, up to $500, will be used to purchase carbon offsets from Carbonfund.org; all remaining proceeds will be applied to the religious organization of the UUCB and servicing the public benefit of the community by working toward the fulfillment of its mission.
Tickets are $20.00 each and may be purchased by cash, check, credit card, or money order. Each ticket must list the purchaser’s telephone number and address. Raffle tickets may not be deposited in the federal postal service; doing so is a violation of federal law and may lead to penalties.
