Fundraising Duck Race: How it Works

Here’s how it works: You’ll choose an amazing prize (cars, houses, cash, anything up to a million bucks) then sell your ducks just as you always do. Prior to your event, we’ll randomly select a group of Lucky Ducks. If one of those preselected “lucky ducks” crosses the finish line first, the duck’s owner will win your giant prize and Odds On will pick up the tab up to a million bucks. Or, split the prize 50/50 with the duck’s owner and your charity for a real win/win.

Do you or your sponsors already purchase prize insurance through another company? Then you’ve got to give us a call at 888-827-2249! We guarantee to save you and your event sponsors money on your next fundraising duck race promotion!

One More Miracle: Man Wins Dodge at Outreach Event

Chickamauga, Ga. – Larry Griffith of Rock Spring won a 2014 Dodge Ram truck at the Oakwood Baptist Church’s Northwest Georgia Sportsman’s Expo, courtesy of Jenkins Chrysler Jeep Dodge, and paid for by Odds On Promotions.

Griffith won the new truck, which was the grand prize fundraising raffle, after he selected a Money Bag which contained the lucky prize-winning envelope.

Billed as “A day full of wild game, wild life, music, and a life changing message,” the NWGA Sportsman’s Expo also featured a wild game dinner, a gun raffle, hunting supplies, a car and motorcycle show, music and activities for children.

According to Scott McSpadden, Director of Men’s Ministry with Oakwood Baptist Church, the Expo, which is a key outreach activity run by the church’s Woods and Waters Ministry, drew approximately 800 attendees, while the raffle raised $500 will be used to supplement future outreach projects.

“It was really big day – and we were hoping for one more miracle. Having a big winner like that was exciting. It ended everything with a big boom.”

Golf Promotions Make Great Fundraisers

golf promotionsLooking for a great fundraising idea that will draw a crowd?  How about insuring a few golf promotions?  That’s what this nonprofit medical center in the state of Kansas did, by insuring a few unique golf shootout contests, with the assistance of not only Odds On Promotions, but our sister company, Hole In One International.

Here’s how the golf promotions worked: Come the day of the golf tournament, 75 of the players, invited via exclusive invitation, participated in a golf shootout contest, where if any of them made a hole in one from the specified 155-yard par 3 hole, they would win $50,000… compliments of Hole In One International.

While unfortunately, no one ended up making the prize shot, there was still good news to be had.  That’s because 20 of the those players were invited to come back and participate in a second golf shoot out contest — this time, from the par 3 18th hole, which measured 165 yards.  The players were qualified in various ways: the 16 golfers who were closest to the pin from the prior shootout contest were invited back, 2 players qualified via auction, 1 via putting contest, and 1 via a chipping contest.

golf promotions 2 hole in oneIf one of the twenty golfers managed to ace the 18th hole, they would have landed $1,000,000 for themselves and $1,000,000 for the medical center, which focuses on cancer research and treatment.  That’s a cumulative $2,000,000 prize… paid for by Odds On Promotions!

While no golfers managed to make a hole-in-one, money was still raised for the medical center and fun was had by all.  Make your next golf tournament or golf outing a huge success by advertising the chance to win big, compliments of Odds On Promotions!  Want every single player in your tournament to be given a chance to ace a hole and win the big bucks?  Then check out our hole in one insurance!  Give us a call today at 888-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote on any golf promotions of your choice… or email us for more information or with any questions you may have!  We’d love to help make your next big fundraising event a success with one of our golf promotions.
