Am I the only one to notice that if they indeed sell 10k tickets at $50 each, they will only have made $500k, and thus lose $150k if they are indeed giving out $650k in prizes?

it's a non-profit raffle, as such many of the items to be given out were donated.

For instance, all the richard petty driving experience slots were donated, and they run 1300-1500 bucks each, most of the non-cash awards are donated as well.

Those prizes are more than likely donated by various companies as in-kind donations (goods and services).

I work for a non-profit and I know that's how we get by, especially when doing fundraisers with prizes (when I interned there, I had to call around to various businesses and try to get incentives for people to donate).
