50-50 Raffle Ticket Sources

50-50 raffle fundraising tickets are the style of tickets that have two sections that both share a unique serial number. They come on a consecutively numbered double ticket roll. The seller keeps one half and the buyer gets the other half. Tickets can be quickly sold because there isn’t any name, address, or phone number to fill out.

What the Law Says
