CRX AUCTIONS!
Raffles   are   always   a   fun   part   of   the   CRX   event.     People    get    to    see    what    is    available    and purchase    tickts    to    shove    into    a    container, hoping   that   their   ticket   will   be   drawn.      Due   to this   being   a   virtual   world-wide   event,   subject to   the   legalities   of   state   gambling   laws,   as   well as   trying   to   collect   money   with   PayPal   or   other online   payment   services   that   strictly   prohibit raffles,   we   have   opted   to   use   auctions   for   items that will be pseduo-secretly placed on eBay. More    information    will    be    available    in    the AUCTIONS section on our Discord server.
