Welcome to the First Annual Cheshire Moon
The Thousandaire Brunch is a luncheon event where 100 ticket holders vie for the chance to win a $3,000 cash prize.
On Sunday, February 9, we will welcome our contestants to the William Turner Gallery. This 5,000 square foot space in the Bergamot Station Arts Complex will be transformed to host our intimate gathering of players and guests who will be hoping to leave thousands of dollars richer!
Throughout the course of the three hour event, names will be drawn and players eliminated until only three ticket holders remain. The last three players will vote – IN SECRET – whether to split the pot, or continue to draw names until the last player standing walks away with $3,000 cash!
Each Player and their guests will enjoy a delicious brunch prepared by Chef Ruth and the wonderful staff of Tarte Catering (menu available soon!). Coffee, tea, and juices are included as well as two mimosas or bloody marys per attendee – but don’t worry, there will be plenty of opportunities to win or purchase additional drink tickets!
There will be plenty of prizes, giveaways, and other ways to continue to participate – and win! – even if you are knocked out of the running for the grand prize. (A list of this year’s supporters and sponsors is coming soon.)
Player & Guest Ticket
Sound fun, but a little confusing? Keep reading for answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions.
How much are tickets?
Tickets to this year’s Thousandaire Brunch are $85 for a Single Player or $145 for Player & Guest.
How many tickets will be sold?
Only 100 players are entered to win the cash grand prize. We can accommodate up to 50 Player & Guest tickets, and the rest will all be Single Player tickets.
What is included with my ticket?
All tickets include brunch buffet, unlimited coffee, tea, and juice, and 2 drink tickets for alcoholic beverages. It also includes one entry into the Thousandaire Drawing.
If I bring a guest, does it double my chances? Do we each get an entry in the Drawing?
If you purchase the Player & Guest Ticket, that is still only ONE entry into the Thousandaire Drawing. If you and your date both want a chance to win the cash grand prize, then you should purchase two Single Tickets.
What happens when my name is called?
When your name is called, you are out of the running for the cash grand prize. However, there will be plenty of prizes awarded throughout the event, so don’t lose heart if you are eliminated early!
What are my chances of winning money?
You have a 3 in 100 chance of walking away with a minimum of $1,000!
How do I win the $3,000?
To win $3,000, your must name must NOT have been called during game play.
Why do the last three tickets matter?
The last three ticket holders whose names were NOT called during game play have an important choice to make. They will each vote – IN SECRET – whether to evenly split the cash grand prize (i.e. $1,000 each), OR to eliminate another player. The vote must be unanimous. If even ONE player votes to keep going, then another ticket is drawn, and another player is eliminated. Voting continues until the pot is shared, or one player walks away with all of it!
How long will the event last?
The event will last from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm.
What else will be happening during the event?
We will have a silent auction, some other fun “mini-games” and inter-table competitions, and more. This will definitely be a fun, interactive event with lots of chances to not walk away empty handed.
How do I sit with my other friends who bought tickets?
When you purchase your tickets, there is a “special instructions” section that will allow you to enter the names of friends / colleagues you are attending with. We will do our best to accommodate all our guests.
What should I wear to the Thousandaire Brunch?
Feel free to get dressed up! There will be plenty of photo ops for you and your friends who attend.
