OVERVIEW, HOW TO GET TICKETS AND ENTER:
There is a total of 40 prizes available to enter to win (each a “Prize”). To enter you must have a ticket. Once you have a ticket you can place the ticket in a drawing for a specific Prize. For example, if you have 20 tickets, you can place all 20 tickets in in a single drawing for one Prize or you can separate the 20 tickets into drawings for different Prizes as you wish. There are many ways to get tickets. You will automatically receive tickets with a donation or you can request tickets for free without donating. To donate and receive tickets simply follow the instruction that you receive online at https://vths.org, from a personalized mailing or in person during a live event. The number of tickets that is provided with a donation can vary based on the amount of the donation as stated in the Sweepstakes materials. To enter without donating, handprint your name, address, daytime phone number and email address and mail to: Tickets Entries – Valley Torah High School, 12517 Chandler Blvd., Valley Village, CA 91607. You can also request tickets without donating in person at Valley Torah High School. For each ticket request (without donation) the Sponsor will provide the entrant with three (3) tickets that may be used in a Prize drawing. Limit of 100 tickets / entries per person regardless of the method of entry for the Sweepstakes.

Winners may be required to provide Social Security number to Sponsor for tax reporting purposes. Winning constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use each winner’s name, photograph, hometown, likeness, and prize won for future advertising, publicity in any and all media now or hereafter devised throughout the world, in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification, release, or permission.
