Department Raffles

Department Raffles

Current: 50/50 Raffle, click here to enter now!
Coming Up: Fall Raffle in November 2023, information coming soon.

The American Legion, Department of Florida supports over twenty-seven programs aimed at helping Florida’s veterans, their families, and their communities through our 4 Pillars on which we were founded: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth.

To continue our efforts, we rely on the generosity of our members and our patriots through a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. Our raffles are just one way we raise funds to offset the costs of our programs and services. Plus, we are able to award a variety of CASH PRIZES to the winners. It’s truly a win-win for all!

Our raffles are open to any Florida participant who is eighteen (18) years and older. Employees of The American Legion, National Headquarters and The American Legion, Department of Florida and their family members and household residents are not eligible to enter.

You made a difference…

Look at what we were able to accomplish in 2022-2023 because of your generosity!

Summer and Fall Raffles

Summer and Fall Raffles

Department hosts two traditional raffles annually, one in the Summer prior to our Convention, and the second in the Fall prior to our Conference. Tickets are mailed prior to these events but are also available online. Recipients are asked to send in their donations and tickets to enter for a chance to win. A live drawing will determine ten lucky winners at each event, where winners receive up to $10,000! If you’d like to be a part of the initial mailing, please fill out the packet request form.

50/50 Online Raffle

50/50 Online Raffle

On a bi-weekly basis, we hold an online 50/50 raffle, where the prize pool continues to grow with every entry. An Early Bird winner is drawn at the halfway point with a guaranteed $1,000 prize. Therefore, one lucky winner will be selected every Friday at 8:00 pm EST. The main prize pool winner is drawn bi-weekly and receives half of the prize pool raised. The other half is shared between Department and selected Florida Legion Posts.

Posts are encouraged to promote this raffle, as they too can benefit! Participants can select their local Post to receive a portion of their donations. The home Post of the prize pool winner gets a bonus of $500!

This raffle is conducted completely online and is ongoing through the year!

Holiday Raffle

Holiday Raffle

The Holiday Raffle offers 31 CHANCES TO WIN, as one winner is selected daily in the month of December.  A donation of five dollars is requested per ticket. One dollar goes into the prize pool, while the remaining four dollars are equally divided to support the Department and participating Posts.

Posts are exclusively allowed to begin selling tickets as early as October, and online individual ticket sales begin in early November. The total prize amount (one dollar per ticket) collected in October and November is divided up throughout the month of December as a base prize amount. Participants may submit tickets online throughout December to continually increase the prize pool for each daily drawing.

The great part is you have MULTIPLE CHANCES TO WIN! Once your ticket is entered in the barrel, it doesn’t come out unless you win.  Enter multiple tickets for multiple chances.
