anything would help. It's really too bad Cheapy couldn't find time to promote as he wanted through the 2 extensions. But he meant well and CAG did our best. Almost $40K is damn good.

Just put in $50. Not much, but just got out of the hospital and have a lot of bills coming. Sure wish someone had set me up with some games while I was there. Talk about boring.

Threw in another $15, not much but I have to start watching my expenses more closely. I'll stay in this Superbowl Sunday instead.

So, when do we find out the results of the winners and as far as who we send our codes to? (I almost couldn't find this page and luckily it is in my signature so I looked that way.)

It usually takes Cheapy awhile to get the data together. I would expect a couple weeks at least.

I threw in a couple of bills. Hope it brings some needy kids a little distraction in tough times.

Okay, I wasn't sure how easy or difficult it is, like if our donations went into a program that randomly selected us. I just want to make sure the winners get their prizes from me, & best of luck to any of us winning prizes. I know that Amazon Gift Card would be really awesome!

I don't think it's just randomly picking names out of a spreadsheet. I might be wrong, but I think this raffle (or at-least the drawing) is actually conducted by a bonded third party (accounting firm or something). When their dealing with this many prizes and this much money I'm sure Cheapy will make sure his drawings are 100% legal and legit. Long story short, it will take a while but I would not be too worried about your prizes not getting to the correct winners.

I just spent a few days in the hospital and it would of sucked even more without my PSPGo and cell phone for games so I can imagine it being even worse for kids. My favorite charity.

Is that true? I don't care anyway, when I donate time, money, or gifts I am donating it, anything else I get back is a nice treat, like in a raffle. However, I would like to know if that was just a joke or not, as would people who really want to win something.

An update would be appropriate around now. "soon" is pretty subjective and it's been 10 days since the conclusion. Even just a set date for the draw/announcement would be nice (even if it is in a week or more.

Yeah... I know, it's about the kids, but there is also a raffle and whether you believe it or not - people wouldn't have donated that much money if there wasn't a raffle.

And by the way, I have no dilusions of winning anything. I just want to see this done with.

As I mentioned on an earlier post, I believe only a page back, every year this has been done, it has taken Cheapy several weeks to get the data together. It has to be compiled manually then run through a randomizer to get the winners. This is no different than prior years, I suspect. It'll happen, it just takes time.

If everyone here had listened to the most recent CAGCAST you would know that Cheapy said the results of the raffle would be published sometime this week....

haven't listened yet, but I have it downloaded and ready to go. Just haven't had to travel yet/commute. I like to save my podcast for when I have to drive, or fly. Thanks for the info.

The winners have now been added to the OP. Thanks for your patience.

Even though we didn't meet our $50k goal, $38k is nothing to sneeze at. You all should be proud!
