Wine Raffle – Instructions for Promoting on Facebook

I managed to sell out my 40 tickets, plus a few more, to friends of mine–by putting 1 post up on Facebook. Here’s how to do it.

First, start with a fun intro. You could do something like this:

“Friends: if you win these 100 fabulous bottles of wine, I WON’T REST till I help you drink it all!”

I’d add some examples of what’s in that list, e.g. say something like “Examples of bottles in that 100-bottle collection that you might win: 2015 Leonetti Cellar Cabernet; 2017 Avennia Oliane Sauvignon Blanc; 2015 Stag’s Leap Cabernet; Gosset Grande Reserve Brut Champagne.”

Then, explain how it works:

“Our club members buy and donate the wine, so essentially all of the ticket sales go to the charities we give out grants to in the Bend area. As well, some members’ businesses donate cases of wine that are given away as well as second prizes. We sell a max of 5000 tickets. Drawing is March 1st 2019, and you don’t need to be present to win. Just tell me how many tickets you want @ $5 a ticket, and send me a check (payable to Rotary Club of Greater Bend).”

Then add a photo to your post. Here are a few you can choose from. Right-click on the one you want, select Save image as to save it to your computer’s hard drive. Then, in your Facebook post, click Photo/Videoto browse and select that photo.

Click Share and you’re done :-).
