The San Diego Giving Back Raffle is an annual charitable fundraiser benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. For 19 years, community contributions through raffle fundraisers have supported our continuing effort to offer a "home away from home" to thousands of deserving families with a child in the hospital. In addition to benefiting our non-profit organization, the raffle awards thousands of prizes to raffle participants each year.
Our raffle fundraiser is a unique opportunity for the public to give back to an important community resource, while the raffle gives back to our wonderful supporters in the form of thousands of prizes each year totaling more than $25 million in prizes awarded over the raffle's history.
Each raffle transaction - defined as a ticket order of any ticket quantity - is guaranteed to win at least one item in the Grand Prize Drawing. The prize win is linked to the raffle transaction and not to any given raffle ticket.
After the first 1,045 prizes have been awarded, every remaining non-winning ticket transaction is then awarded the following prize option: Winner's choice of 1) Two Tickets to a San Diego Padres Home Game at Petco Park in September 2023, 2) One Entry in $50,000 Cash Replay Drawing (1 winner), 3) One Entry in $5,000 Cash Replay Drawing (5 winners), 4) One Entry in $500 Cash Replay Drawing (50 winners), 5) One Entry in $100 VISA Gift Card Drawing (10 winners), or 6) RMHC-SD Branded Reversible Tote Bag, subject to availability. Actual number of prizes awarded shall depend on total number of eligible ticket transactions.

You are guaranteed to win at least one prize in the Grand Prize Drawing for each transaction.
