  • Previously Selected Card Numbers -- See "Results" above.
  • The Queen of Hearts was found during our very first drawing on 11/27/19 (unbelievable!) and we started over with a new game board. The first drawing for that game was held 12/4/19.

How It Works

All 54 cards (including two jokers) are placed randomly behind 54 numbers on a factory sealed board.  The board is kept in a locked case at all times except during weekly drawings.

The name and number on the ticket is read, and then the corresponding numbered card from the raffle board is revealed.

If the card is not the Queen of Hearts, the ticket holder wins a designated prize and the pot rolls over for next week’s raffle and all tickets destroyed.

The holder of record of the ticket wins 50% of the “Net Pot”.

Each week after the drawing, all purchased tickets, except for the winning ticket, will be destroyed and new tickets sold for the next week's drawing. 

Claiming a Prize

The card number and the name on the holder of record of the winning ticket (“the Potential Winner”) shall be announced at the drawing and may be posted on the St. John Brebeuf website and Facebook page.  

St. John Brebeuf shall attempt to contact the Potential Winner by calling the phone number on the ticket.

The Potential Winner must claim his/her prize within 30 days of the drawing or if the prize cannot be awarded for any reason, the prize shall be forfeited, and the prize shall become property of St. John Brebeuf.

All winners are solely responsible for the payment of any and all taxes.  The Official Winner may be required to pay withholding tax in an amount required by IRS regulations and IDOR.  All winners agree to provide their tax i.d. number (social security number).

St. John Brebeuf shall withhold a portion of the prize as required by the IRS, federal or state law

St. John Brebeuf as sponsor of the raffle is bound to the Archdiocese of Chicago, Parish or School Raffle Official Rules – Terms and Agreements

Thank You for Buying Raffle Tickets And Good Luck!

 Long Live the Queen!
