Official Rules for Seek the Peak Prize Drawings

The deadline for fundraising that counts towards your prize eligibility is midnight on Friday, July 17, 2015. So, if you collect offline donations (cash or checks), and cannot attend the Friday night registration to turn them in, you must mail them in advance to ensure that they arrive at our offices by Friday, July 17, 2015. We cannot alter fundraising totals once the event is underway.

You will receive one entry into each prize drawing that you qualify for, except for the $1,000 prize drawing, for which you will receive one entry per $1,000 raised. So, for example, if you raise $8,000 you will receive one entry each in the $200, $300, $500, and $750 prize drawings, and eight entries in the $1,000 drawing.

Prize drawings will take place from approximately 5:00 - 7:00 PM on Saturday, July 18, 2015 at the Seek the Peak After Party, held at the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road on NH Route 16 near Gorham, NH. You must be present to win.

Mount Washington Observatory employees and trustees are eligible to receive applicable fundraising incentives, but are not eligible to receive prizes in the drawings.

Prizes are not transferable, redeemable for cash or substitutable. Mount Washington Observatory reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value, at its sole discretion, at any time. Acceptance of each prize constitutes the participant's full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of the Official Rules.
