EXPERIENCE DRAWINGS, ENTRIES, AND PRIZES

How will winners be notified?

We’ll use the contact information provided at the time of entry to notify the winners. You can also find the winning names on the Winners page shortly after each drawing.

What is the address of the home?

For the privacy of the current resident, we can’t share the exact address of the house (thanks for understanding!), but it’s in a beautiful and highly desirable area of Lake Mary.

Can I pick a different home?

No. However, if the Grand Prize winner does not want to take possession of the grand prize home, they can elect to take the cash alternative.

Why DON’T I see this in my order history

Donations made towards Orlando Dream House experience will not appear in your Omaze.com order history or account as this experience is being run on a separate internal platform. If you make a donation, you’ll receive an order confirmation. If you have questions on how many entries you have, please feel free to email houses@omaze.com .

How many entries will be awarded? Is there a cap?

Each person who enters is subject to a maximum of 3,300 entries for the Grand Prize drawings. This cap is for all those who enter regardless of how you enter.

Can I win more than one prize?

Winners of weekly prizes are still able to win the Grand Prize and future Omaze prizes.

TAXES

Is this tax deductible?

All donations made through the Omaze platform go to the Charities Aid Foundation America (CAFA), a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. CAFA has partnered with Omaze to make giving internationally and domestically safe, easy and effective for U.S. donors by raising charitable donations from members of the public to fund monetary grants to other charitable organizations. In accordance with the terms of the sweepstakes you entered, so long as the designated grantee specified in the sweepstakes remains eligible to receive grants when the sweepstakes ends, CAFA will grant an amount equal to the net proceeds (as defined in our Official rules) from the sweepstakes to the designated grantee. See the Terms of Use for more information on donations and CAFA’s grant making process. Anyone who donates to CAFA through the Omaze platform receives chances to win prizes, however, no donation is required to enter to win an experience, and a donation does not increase your chances of winning a sweepstakes experience. Because a donation is not required to enter, and because CAFA is a U.S. charity, all donations made by U.S. donors through the Omaze platform are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If your donation is accompanied by an experience perk, the amount of your donation that is deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes may be limited to the excess of the amount contributed over the value of goods or services provided. If you have any questions regarding your tax obligations, you should consult with your own tax advisor. If you are a U.S. donor and would like us to send you a formal donation tax receipt or if there is anything else we can do to be of assistance, please contact our Customer Experience team at houses@omaze.com .

Do I have to pay taxes if I win?

Omaze will not be covering taxes on prizes. However, there are cash alternatives for prizes valued at $5,000+ so all randomly drawn winners will be able to accept their prize. For more information, please review our Official Rules and Terms of Use.

ELIGIBILITY

Can I win if I’m a US resident who lives outside of FL?

Yes, the dream house sweepstakes is open to US residents outside of Florida. Entry is subject to all local laws, so we encourage you to head to the Rules page, as they may pertain to your specific area.

Do I have to be a US resident/citizen to win the grand prize?
