By obtaining a Sweepstakes Ticket, the entrant agrees to be bound by these Rules and Regulations. The Organization's interpretation and application of the Rules and Regulations shall be final.

Only one person may be entered in the Sweepstakes per ticket or donation.

Division of a prize or prizes by a group purchasing a ticket in common shall be the sole responsibility of the person named as the holder of record of that ticket, should that ticket be selected as the winner or winners. The Organization will not, and is not obligated to, honor an assignment of the prize or prizes to another person.

The Organization reserves the right to reject any entry form that is submitted with a donation that does not constitute "good funds," except as set forth below for requests for Sweepstakes Tickets without a donation. All defective or physically altered entry forms will be immediately disqualified by the Organization. Prior to the prize or prizes drawings, the Organization will make a reasonable effort to notify the individual and/or entity that submits such an entry form which has been rejected, by attempting to make contact through the information provided at the time of submitting the ticket request.

How to Enter:

Any eligible person may enter the Sweepstakes by obtaining an official numbered sweepstakes ticket (“Sweepstakes Ticket”) from the Organization during the Sweepstakes Period. Sweepstakes Tickets may be obtained in the following manner: (1) ordering online by visiting https://www.tapkat.org/american-cancer-society/xk0Lgk and submitting an online ticket form with a donation; (2) by mailing (postage paid) your check or money order for the appropriate entry amount along with your full name, email, phone number and address (all required to enter) to: American Cancer Society, Attn: Sweeptakes Entries, PO Box 10393, Chicago, IL 60610; (3) or by requesting a Sweepstakes Ticket without a donation using this form.

Prize:

Subject to a minimum of $75,000 in donation proceeds received during the Sweepstakes Period, the Grand Prize is a 2022 Mustang Convertible GT Premium. In the event less than $75,000 in donation proceeds are received during the Sweepstakes Period, the Organization will split the net donation proceeds from the donations on a 50/50 basis with the qualified Grand Prize ticket holder. As used herein, the term “net donation proceeds” means the gross proceeds received by the Organization from donations for tickets in the Sweepstakes less payment of all Sweepstakes related expenses as determined by the Organization. The determination by the Organization will be binding in all events other than a manifest error made by the Organization in the computation of the donations and expenses of the Sweepstakes. Prizes identified, logos, brands and other trademarks referred to herein are the property of their respective trademark holders. The Organization reserves the right to extend the end date of the Sweepstakes Period in the event the donation proceeds are not on a trajectory to meet the minimum donation proceeds to award the prize.

Winning Odds:

The odds of winning the prize or prizes depend on the total number of eligible Sweepstakes Tickets issued.

Selection of Winner:

The winning ticket number will be drawn at approximately 4:30pm CDT on August 30, 2022 from all eligible Sweepstakes Tickets. Winner need not be present to win. The Organization reserves the right to extend the duration of the sweepstakes in the event that the minimum “Minimum to Award Prizes” has not been met.

Winner or winners will be notified according to the contact information provided to the Organization at the time of the entry. Entrants may also request the name of the winner or winners by sending a request entitled “Name of Winners” and a self-addressed stamped #10 envelope to: American Cancer Society, Attn: Sweeptakes Entries, PO Box 10393, Chicago, IL 60610. The prize is forfeited if the prize winner cannot be located by 4:30pm CDT on September 29, 2022, after attempting to make contact through the information provided at the time of entry. The Organization will make all reasonable efforts to notify the potential prize winner or winners. If the prize winner cannot be located by 4:30pm CDT on September 29, 2022, a new winner will be drawn from the remaining eligible Sweepstakes Tickets. In the event of printing or other error that leads to more prize claims than there are prizes provided in the Official Rules, the prize will be awarded in a random sweepstakes among all eligible prize claims received.

The winner of the prize(s) authorizes the Organization to report the award of the prize in accordance with Applicable Law. Prize winners must pick up their prize or arrange for delivery of their prize, except the Organization will deliver cash prizes to prize winners by U.S. mail, wire transfer, or other mutually acceptable means.

Any attempt to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Organization reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Organization’s delay or failure to enforce any term or provision of these Official Sweepstakes Rules and Regulations shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
