Fat Cyclist's Grand Slam 5

grand_slam_5-large

The Fat Cyclist is at it again, inviting you to help change hundreds of lives through the Fat Cyclist’s Grand Slam 5! For every $5 contributed, you have an opportunity to win 5 dream bikes generously donated by leaders in the bicycle industry as a way to show a unified voice of support for the work of World Bicycle Relief. Each WBR Buffalo Bike costs only $134 to distribute and each one immediately impacts the lives of not just the owner, but at least 5 people (family members, patients of healthcare workers, those who catch a ride, local mechanics, and more!). Help the Fat Cyclist reach his goal of raising $100,000 for World Bicycle Relief*. Winners will be contacted at the conclusion of the challenge on January 7, 2014.

It is the purchaser’s responsibility to provide a valid, deliverable email address to World Bicycle Relief (WBR). WBR and its agents, Board, volunteers and members assume no liability for lost, late, misdirected or incomplete entries or entries without proper payment received, which entries shall be deemed invalid and shall be immediately disqualified. By entering the Raffle, the entry purchaser acknowledges that he or she is aware of and agrees with the raffle official rules. DRAWINGS Prize drawing will be held and winning certificate number will be announced on January 7, 2014. All entries must be received by 11:59pm (CST) December 31st, 2013 to be eligible for the drawing. WBR reserves the right not to accept entries at their discretion and to add additional prizes or drawings at any time. RETURN AND CANCELLATION POLICY All purchases of raffle entries are non-refundable. PRIZES The five winners are eligible to win one of the 5 prizes: A Trek Madone, a Specialized S-Works, a Cannondale CAAD10, a BOOM EOS and one other bike equipped with SRAM and Zipp parts. In the event of a winning entry having more than one name, WBR will award the prize to the first name listed on the entry. Records of WBR shall be deemed correct if there is any discrepancy. WBR is not responsible for resolving any disputes that may arise from different individuals listed on a raffle certificate. With proper transfer documents bearing notarized signatures, as required by the Raffle, the prize may be transferred. NOTIFICATION OF WINNER The winner will be notified by email of the prize won and any requisite procedure to claim the prize. The winners will also be announced on World Bicycle Relief and Fat Cyclist Twitter feeds on January 7, 2014 at 12pm Central. If the winner is unable to be contacted or located after a period of one hundred and twenty (120) days from the date of the raffle drawing, the prize will be deemed to have been donated to WBR. All contact attempts shall be made to the email address and phone number provided by the raffle entry purchaser. The winner, by entering, authorizes WBR to publish their name and likeness on the website and for it to be used in other promotional materials by WBR. TAXES AND IRS RULES The winner shall be responsible for any and all federal, state and local income or excise taxes, fees, assessments and like charges associated with the prize. The Fat Cyclist’s “Grand Slam 5” challenge will follow the rules in effect at the time the prize is awarded. The Fat Cyclist has partnered with WBR to facilitate the license of this raffle with the City of Chicago. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a tax-deductible charitable contribution. Check with your qualified financial advisor for additional information.
