If you cannot answer the question do I get my $47 refunded?
If I ask you to close the question without a definitive answer on the part of your experts, do I receive a refund?
If I have not been charged as yet (I paid through a credit card) then I say close the question.
If I have been charged then I need to see an answer. It does not matter if I have heard anything from any other source. I want to know what has been found regarding this matter for which I have been charged.
Thank you Jim for your thoughtful answer. Since a decision had to be made asap (the quartet just found out about their qualifying for the international competition at the beginning of July) I could wait no longer to make a decision re raffles. The tickets and flyers had to be made and distributed. I decided against raffles and have replaced the raffles with silent auctions. Your answer reinforces my decision. However, the raffles and 50/50 are more fun!
