Contest Rules

Here are the rules for WCIC’s Israel Trip Giveaway:

To enter, fill out a pledge form, even if you are unable to give, before Tuesday, March 6th. Online donations can be made here. Pledges can be made by calling 877-692-9242 or by mailing in a form. Mailed entries must be received before March 6th. All current monthly supporters will automatically be included in the drawing.

The winner will receive a trip for two to Israel. The trip will be led by WCIC’s Jill and Jeremy from “Mornings with the Traceys.” The dates are March 26-April 4, 2019. If the 2019 trip has to be canceled for any reason, the winner will receive two spots on the next Israel trip taken by WCIC. If the winner is unable to go on the trip, the winner may gift it to someone else. No cash equivalent will be offered.

Included in the trip are flights to/from Chicago O’Hare International Airport, all scheduled program activities, accommodations, all hotel and program-related tips, all in-land transportation, two meals a day (breakfast and dinner), and a pre-trip packet.

In addition to the trip, the winner will receive $400 to cover additional meals and miscellaneous expenses. The winner will also receive money - based on a 15% tax rate - to cover the cost of income taxes on the trip value. The total value of the prize is approximately $9650.

The value is based on double occupancy, meaning you and your guest will share a room. To share a room on this trip, you need to be related by blood or marriage or two people of the same sex.

The winner will be chosen by random drawing from all eligible entries on Thursday, March 8th at 10 a.m. The winner will be notified by phone and must accept the prize by Friday, March 16th at 10 a.m. or a new winner will be chosen.
