The rules (the “Rules”) of the Raffle, set forth below, govern the Raffle, award of prizes, and participation in the Raffle. These Rules bind every person (a “Ticket Holder”) who buys or holds a Raffle ticket.

The drawing for the Raffle will take place on September 14, 2021 (the “Prize Drawing Date”). The final ticket purchase deadline for entry is September 6, 2021 (the “Final Ticket Purchase Deadline”). 

CBS employees, paid contractors and members of their household may not purchase a ticket and are not eligible to win a prize. CBS Board Members may not purchase a ticket and are not eligible to win a prize. 

CBS reserves the right to require reasonable evidence of the eligibility of an Eligible Ticket Purchaser or Ticket Holder at any time and to void any ticket sold to a person who does not meet the eligibility requirements or who is precluded by applicable law from holding a ticket or participating in a raffle.
