My friend had a serious motorbike accident and we are planning on auctioning a Signed motorcycle helmet to raise money for his charity which is naturally Spinal Research. As its a fairly small market we decided that maybe the Auction wouldn't monetise it as well as we hoped and a raffle with entrance fee would be better. Does anyone have any experience of raising funds in this manner? We are looking at selling 2/5k tickets ideally which given the funds raised already is probably a fair volume.

Any help anyone can give on the logistics would be great.
