What is a tricky tray?
A Tricky Tray is also known as a Chinese Auction. This is a fundraising
event in which items are raffled of to raise money for the organization, such as
schools and churches. Here the way it works. Your guest will pay a
small admission and with their admission they receive a set amount of tickets in
which they will place in a container next to the item they would like to win.
Obviously they can purchase additional tickets. Once everyone has had the
opportunity to place his or her ticket in the container the raffle begins.
If the number pulled matches your ticket stub – You Win that prize.
