Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in the grand prize?
Round trip airline tickets for two from any of the lower 48 United States to Las Vegas and hotel accommodations for two nights. A $100 per diem for food will be offered in total. Two tickets to Supercross will also be provided. All other expenses are the responsibility of the winner.
How old do I have to be to win?
The grand prize will require at least one person to be 18 years of age to receive the grand prize.
Are my ticket purchases tax deductible?

Are there tax implications if I win?
You need to consult an accountant as we cannot provide tax advice. You may be required to declare the fair market value of the prize as income. The Hydrocephalus Association will be required to issue an IRS Form W-2G if the value is more than $600.
Do I get a discount if I buy multiple tickets?
No. Each ticket is $10 regardless of quantity.
If I win, can I bring my whole family?
The grand prize is provided for two people. While you could put more family members in the hotel room, we cannot provide additional tickets or support for an expanded party.
