The Asheville Symphony announces the 2017 Porsche Boxster raffle and Asheville Symphonettes Vespa S-50. We offer the best odds, limiting the number of entrants to only 999 at $125.00 each for the Porsche. In addition, we pay the federal taxes on your winnings*. Compare our raffle to all the others — the number of tickets sold, the value of the prize and the taxes paid on your winnings. We are partnering with the Asheville Symphonettes again this year to raffle off a Vespa S-50. Tickets for the Vespa are only $25 each.
The drawings will take place on June 16, 2017 during the intermission of the Asheville Symphony’s concert, or sooner if the raffle sells out.

The Vespa Raffle is open only to those who are 16 years of age or older as of 6/16/2017. You need not be present to win. An independent accounting firm will supervise the entries and drawing.

*The IRS now requires raffle winners to pay federal taxes on raffle winnings at the time of the award. The Asheville Symphony will pay to the IRS, on behalf of the winner, an amount equal to 33.33% of our cost of the vehicle. The tax must be paid not only on the fair market value of the winnings, but also on the tax itself, therefore a grossed up tax rate of 33.33% of the winnings. This may or may not be the actual amount you will owe on your federal taxes. Please consult your tax advisor concerning your specific situation.
Thank you for your support. The Asheville Symphony is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation registered in the State of North Carolina.
