The LLC does not look at it that way. Raffling has been part of fund raising for years with many of the funded artists.
When you purchase a ticket, scalped or otherwise, you have an expectation that you will exchange your hard earned money for a ticket. You esentially enter a verbal contract.
When you purchase a chance in 'the FLG raffle there is no agreement that you will receive anything except the knowledge that the money you gambled will be used for a worthy endeavor.
I don't see this as scalping on any level. Offering a ticket from a random drawing is nothing more than promoting the fact that they are seeking donations.
Those who think they can and those who think they can't are both right.
