Ticket numbers are eliminated one at a time with the 50th, 100th, 150th, 200th and 250th ticket drawn receiving $50 cash. Door prizes are awarded every 10 numbers drawn. The 296th, 297th, 298th and 299th draws are worth $500 each, but when only five numbers are left, the owners or their representatives are brought to the front of the room and served champagne. They then can choose to split the $15,000 grand prize plus the four $500s ($17,000) or continue to draw until those people left decide to split or a single winner is determined.
Dinner Only tickets are $35 each and a number of door prizes are awarded to those ticket holders as well.
