30 Years of Great Science Learning! 15 Years of Best for Last Fun!
You can win $10,000 in our reverse raffle - the last person drawn is the winner! Buy a ticket for one in 252 chances to win. The first drawn is still a big winner, $500. Additional cash and special prizes are awarded through out the night.
Don’t forget, you can be a “lucky loser” with a Loser’s Boost. If you purchase a “Loser’s Boost” and your ticket is drawn 242nd or earlier, it will be put into the “Loser’s Boost” box. When only nine tickets remain, one ticket from the Loser’s Boost box will be drawn and added back into the drawing for $10,000. A “Loser’s Boost” costs $25 now or $50 at the event.
Need to buy your luck? You can! We will auction two bonus tickets when only 8 tickets remain in the drawing. You can join together with friends to bid on one of these valuable chances or buy it yourself!
Remember, there may be more than one winner! When only five tickets remain, we will call the remaining ticket holders to the front (or get them via phone). These folks will negotiate to split the grand prize or to keep drawing. If they agree to split, they share the prize. If they won’t split, the drawing and negotiations continue until a deal is made or until we have a single winner.
Even if you don’t win - eat, drink and be merry! The Jim Szana Trio (Thanks, SD Arts Council!) will play. Some of the very best chefs in the area will have samples of their tastiest work. Our Friendly bartenders will serve new and old favorites from Budweiser and wine from Capital City Wine & Spirits.
A few premium tables are available for $300. This includes a table for 8 people in the mezzanine with food and drink service nearby. [Just 8 tables available.]
Childcare for children 2 years and up is provided by the Girl Scouts at the Pierre Chamber Community Room. $5/child or $10/family. Dinner is included with childcare.
Don’t miss the fun! Get your ticket today. Order now (we'll have your ticket at the event) or stop by the SD Discovery Center to purchase your lucky ticket!
