We had seen a bus ad for some weird house raffle a few weeks ago and were quite puzzled. Then we promptly forgot about it. Since then, news outlets have confirmed it's legit. For $150 or more, you can help support Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, while entering to win a $2.4 million house in the Sunset, or $1.8 million in cash (in case you want to avoid paying out of your pocket for those crazy taxes on the house). There is no limit on entries, until they reach their 37,000 ticket maximum.
The 4,200 square foot home has a guest cottage, chef's kitchen, four bedrooms, four and a half baths, a four-car garage, and hardwood mahogany and marble floors. How swank!
The first early bird drawing deadline is this coming Friday, April 3, and the actual drawing is April 16. There will be two more subsequent early bird drawings, and then the grand prize drawing, all of which have various cash prizes. An Early Bird Drawing 1 ticket makes you eligible for all drawings. Check out their FAQ to learn more about the process.
