HOW IT WORKS
Ohio State fans have a new way to support the purpose-driven Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) endeavors of student-athletes — and maybe win some money for themselves in the process.
50/50 raffle tickets will be available for purchase online to anyone in the state of Ohio leading up to the next Buckeye home game and then sold in person at the game by volunteer staff. Ticket sales will end with the conclusion of the third quarter. A drawing will be held once all tickets are printed to determine the lucky winner of half the total jackpot for the game.
The net proceeds will be split between the winning raffle ticket holder and Cohesion Foundation, a nonprofit collective that aims to teach student-athletes the importance of giving back to the community through service by connecting Ohio State student-athletes with area nonprofits.
Raffle winners have 30 days to claim the prize.
Guests must be 18 years old to participate.
The winning number will be announced after the tickets are all printed and a number is randomly selected.
Cohesion Foundation will make reasonable efforts to contact the prize winner using the information provided on the entry form if the purchase is made online. For in-person ticket purchases, the winner is responsible for presenting themselves to the Cohesion Foundation. If a prize winner does not contact Cohesion Foundation within 30 days after the winning number is announced, the Cohesion Foundation shall retain the winning share of the prize.
