Question

McLaughlin High School is selling 1,000 tickets for $10 each to raise funds for its arts programs. One ticket will be drawn, and the person who bought it will win a $1,000 prize. What do think of such a system for raising funds? Would you buy a ticket? Why or why not?

In general, what is your personal view of games of chance, such as a raffle? Do you participate in such games? Do you have particular feelings about people who do or about those who offer them?

1 Answer

  • I honestly think its a good way of raising funds, I would absolutely buy the ticket because in as much as the probability of wining is minimal, I'd be participating in the fund raising, and I do participate in games of chances every once in a while
