Ticket Information

Welcome Week events can lead to winning great prizes. As you attend various Welcome Week events, make sure that you collect a raffle ticket that will make you eligible to win a variety of prizes.

Step 1: Collect Tickets
There are five types of Welcome Week events that are color-coded for your convenience. Attend an event and receive a ticket. Tickets will give a chance to win fabulous prizes. The more tickets you receive the better your chances at winning. To be eligible for the grand prize you must collect 10 tickets (2 of each color).

Step 2: Turn in tickets at SOVO Fair on Aug. 26
Prizes will be handed out throughout the event, but to be considered for the grand prize your tickets must be turned in no later 5:30 p.m.

Step 3: Keep fingers crossed and hangout at the SOVO Fair
All prizes must be claimed in person.

Prizes will be awarded throughout the event, so make sure to listen carefully for your ticket number while you explore the fair. You must be present to win any prize, so join us at the SOVO Fair Friday afternoon from 3-6 p.m.
