Pssst! It's that time of the year again! With Ma' Nature giving everybody a little taste of what's just around the corner, there's no time like the present to announce:

CAMBr's Spring 2017 Bike Raffle

This year's object of desire will be a "Brand New" 2017 PIVOT Mach 4 Carbon Race XT 1X bicycle, which once again will be donated by our friends at Main Street Bicycles in Carpentersville, Illinois!

For raffle info go here --> http://cambr.org/raffle

For bike specs go here --> http://www.pivotcycles.com/bike/mach-4-carbon/#1

**The raffle drawing will be held on Saturday, May 6th, at Main Street Bicycles.**

Good luck...

You do not have to be present to win the bike.

No, but it will make a great present if you win, so buy a bunch of tickets and improve your odds of presenting yourself with an awesome bike.

Does anyone know if this is considered a charitable contribution? I know in the past with my work match program they were able to match silent auction purchases. Bought my bucket full of tickets all ready just trying to see if I can get us an extra $100

It is our undersdtanding that raffle tickets are not tax deducable. However your donations are deductable as CAMBr is a 501c3.   But if you have an accountant, check with them, because as they say, our advice is free and you are getting what you paid for.

State of Illinois defines raffle as gambling. So probably not tax deductible.
