Ideas for raffle
I just took over the local jeeps club and trying to think of some activities so we can get involved with the community and was thinking of hosting a fund raiser or two a year. What are some good raffle prizes that will entise people. I know a winch would be nice to see, but will be hard to drop a few hundred dollars. Not sure how all this works since I've never done it before. Also thinking of doing a poker run for a charity and just need some ideas for prizes so I can start planning ahead.

Thanks guys/gals.

Groupon and Living Social are good things to watch for nice raffle items. As far as other items it all depends on what type of rigs are in your club. If everyone already has tow straps, D-rings etc it can be tricky. Check out tool places for gloves, hand cleaners. Walmart for camping stuff is always nice and some carry a $35 CB.

Nice Coolers are always handy.....
Jeep Cans with a bracket
Don't forget the little kids that ride along, that opens another area to think about.
Big problem is, most of the rigs are outfitted and most of the guys have all kinds of stuff already .
Maybe you could contact the Venders of this forum and see if they have and promotional items that they could sell (Donate ?) for a resonable price...

Quadratec offers awesome Jeep beach towel/ seat covers-- super nice! I got two and use them for mud, me, pups, water, rain, and beach/sand and to keep the seats cool in hot temps. Very nice.

could get cool upgrades like clear side markets, tail light guards, grille inserts, mini jeep collectables, and everything else people posted above me. anything that is around 50 bucks or below usually seems perfectly reasonable to raffle drawings if there are going to be multiple in one fundraiser. personally, I'd like to see the small jeep mods that are relatively inexpensive or jeep merchandise and camping equipment that any random stuff off groupon etc. stick with jeep relevant things at first and see how that ends up...if not, then turn to food coupons haha.

Sorry to hear you have junk on Groupon etc. in your area. We have some nice stuff come thru. Kayak packages, zipline tours, charter fishing trips, helicopter sightseeing tours, dinner cruises, movie theater passes, military museum passes. Just picked up an hour of stand up paddle board including a quick lesson on it for $15 the other day.
