About the Zenkaikon Raffle:
Zenkaikon's annual raffle has always offered prizes of DVDs, books, and other anime-related items. This year, however, Zenkaikon is also happy to be giving away a number of gift cards for Best Buy and Borders, providers of all your anime and manga needs. Ten dollar gift cards to either of these two stores will be raffled off every two hours from noon to midnight on Saturday, and from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday. There will also be a mid-point grand prize on Saturday evening of a $50 Best Buy gift card. The overall grand prize will be drawn on Sunday evening, rewarding the winner with a $100 Best Buy gift card. Raffle tickets are $1 each, and un-drawn tickets will remain in the raffle both days. Winners must present themselves during the convention to claim their prize.
