DONATE A DOOR PRIZE

PdonatedoorprizeWG strives to provide as many alternatives as possible for businesses to network which includes offering Door Prizes. Door Prizes are an excellent opportunity for you to get your business or service noticed by others. Door prizes are highly encouraged from everyone, whether you are a sponsor or an attendee – it’s a great business promoter. [read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

Door Prize Guidelines

A set number of prizes are accepted for each month’s luncheon. If more prizes are received than required, the donated raffle prizes will be kept for the next luncheon.

For each donated item, please include a brief description including your name, your business, and the dollar value of your raffle donation. (i.e. Jane Smith, Smith Publications, One free ad, $150 OR Jane Smith, Smith Publications, Dinner for Two at specific restaurant, $60).

Please bring your gift with you to the luncheon. We will announce the winner and you will present it to them. This way you get to make direct contact and exchange information. Last minute raffle prizes will not be included in that day’s raffle, but will gladly be accepted for the next month’s luncheon. Exceptions will be made for featured sponsors or speakers only.

All donated door prizes must be a true gift with no strings attached (monetarily or otherwise). A donated raffle prize will have no purchase required now or after acceptance of the initial prize. (No raffle prizes for 50% off, etc). Door prize must be a true prize. Offering a service that usually leads to purchasing product that was used for that service will not be allowed. I.e. an esthetician offering a facial is a violation as it is expected that the person receiving the facial will buy some of the product. Offering a facial and including a free lotion or serum with it will be allowed.

Door prizes donated do not have to be directly related to your business (i.e., a therapist can donate a vase. The donation does not have to be related to therapy or the donor’s business.)

If you win your own donated door prize at the event, you will receive the next prize and another number will be called. If you donated the last prize and your number is called, we thank you for your donation and another number will be called.

Re-Gifting

A Door Prize recipient can not place the prize they just won back into the drawing

If a Door Prize can not be used it may be transferred to another individual after the PWG networking event. If a Door Prize is transferred to another individual (attendee, friend, family member, or someone you work with please share the donor’s information and promote their business so that they are recognized for their generosity of donating to a PWG networking event.

Thank you for you consideration. [/read]
