The prize goes to the "ticket holder of record" as reflected in the records of Temple Emanuel.

And, by purchasing a raffle ticket, you agree to abide by and be bound by the Temple’s decisions.
The Temple can cancel the event at any time in its sole discretion and refund to ticket holders the price paid for the ticket. Return of the price paid shall be the ticket holder’s sole recourse and remedy.
