The 8th Annual Raffle

We are pleased to announce the Wharton Global Alumni Forum Raffle in Dubai on March 11–12, 2009.


A raffle is a game of chance, in which contestants purchase tickets that give them the opportunity to win exciting prizes.  Winners are determined when their raffle ticket is drawn.  For a chance to win, contestants need purchase a raffle ticket and to be present at the Raffle Drawing when the prize-winning tickets will be selected. 

As of Wednesday, March 11, all Forum participants will have the opportunity to purchase as many tickets as desired at a cost of 10 USD (or equivalent in other currencies) each.  The more tickets you purchase, the greater your chances of winning a prize. You may purchase tickets at any time during the Forum.  At the Farewell Gala on Thursday, March 12, winners will be drawn and announced.

In keeping with the tradition of the Forum Raffle, the proceeds from the sale of tickets will be donated to a charity chosen by the members of the Organizing Committee. This year, the charity chosen will be “Ibn Khaldoun Scholarship Fund”, supporting students with financial need from Arab League countries to attend the Wharton MBA program.
