Friends of SDB Libraries: Bucks 4 Books Raffle Raises Funds for Our Libraries

Nancy McCluskey-Moore

The Friends of SaddleBrooke Libraries (FSL) Bucks 4 Books Raffle supports funding for the SaddleBrooke Community Libraries to purchase books, DVDs, and audiobooks for our libraries. Fifty-percent of the funds raised through the raffle (after expenses) will be used to buy new materials for our libraries and the remaining 50% will be awarded to our lucky raffle winners.

Between now and 9 p.m. (AZ time) on Dec. 26, SaddleBrooke residents and any Arizona resident or visitor will be able to purchase raffle tickets. Ticket holders will have the chance to win money in four bi-monthly cash drawings, in monthly drawings for tickets to the January 2022 Bucks 4 Books Celebration, and in the remaining 50% Grand Prize Drawing for three lucky ticket holders. The remaining raffle pool will be divided: 50% to the grand prize winner, 30% to the second place winner, and 20% to the third place winner. All winners will be recognized at the Bucks 4 Books Celebration in January.

Tickets can be purchased online at or with cash or check at in-person events (to be announced). When you purchase your tickets online, you must be physically in Arizona, according to state regulations. (This will be confirmed during your online purchase.) Ticket holders do not need to be present to win. Ticket prices are one for $10, three for $25, eight for $50, and 20 for $100. Each raffle ticket purchased will be entered in all future drawings, including the grand prize drawing on Dec. 27.

The website for the raffle uses software created by a third-party vendor, Raffle Creator. Raffle Creator’s software is used to electronically select the winners of the raffle, as in a state lottery. No FSL board member, volunteer, or FSL member plays any part in the selection of the winning tickets.
