do i need some sort of a license to create a raffle event?

well, i work in a tourism company and my job is to advertise and the such. so i came up with an idea to do some sort of a raffle event, and the winners get free or EXTRA discounted tickets to go to hot spots for spring break - whether it's domestic (egypt) or abroad. thing is, i've never actually hosted a raffle event before. so what do i have to do in order to start up a raffle event? i could wait another year, for next year maybe, i just want to get a good plan set. and is it .. legal? or do i need a license or anything of the sort? and what type of problems would i come across that i would like to try to avoid if hosting a raffle event? ten points for BEST answer. x

First check with your state law! There are restrictions in various states on who can conduct raffles, what the rules are, etc. See your corporate attorney before you do anything at all!
