How it works: Upon check-in, each exhibitor will receive raffle tickets to pass out to attendees as they visit your booth. During the fair, all attendees will walk around and visit each booth to receive the raffle ticket Attendees will be asked to drop their raffle tickets into our raffle box towards the end of the fair.  Remember, exhibitors who donate a prize will be the ones to draw a name from the basket and announce the attendee winner.
