A private vendor, Dave Chaloupka of Amadour Winery, is alleged to have sold raffle tickets to a number of people for $100 each, with the winner of the raffle taking home a Fiat.
...
Monday, the Rotary Club, along with the Downtown Business Association and the Budbreak Festival, said they would be refunding those ticket prices while possibly continuing to pursue action against Chaloupka. The groups had already written to Chaloupka, demanding he take action to settle disputes with ticket buyers, but received no response to the letter.

Another important addition to the festival this year came in the form of a fundraiser to establish a scholarship for Surry Community College's viticulture center spearheaded by Amadour Winery & Vineyard President David Chaloupka.
Chaloupka is a third generation vineyard operator and owner of Amadour Winery and Vineyards, which will open this fall in the Dobson area. He worked with the general manager of Fiat of the Triad out of Greensboro, Pamela Shelton, to secure a FIAT 2013 limited edition Abarth car that was on display at Budbreak. Chaloupka sold $100 raffle tickets for a chance to win the car.
Chaloupka said he wanted to support the viticulture program at Surry Community College because prior to this year, there was no scholarship program and he wanted to support the program and the community. He said the idea came to him from the Adopt-a-Vine program, hence the Adopt-a-Vineyard approach.
...
"This was our first year doing this but it's important to us to do something good for the community," added Chaloupka.
DOBSON - Amadour Winery owner ...

DOBSON - Amadour Winery owner David Chaloupka released a written statement Thursday concerning a disputed fundraising raffle held at Budbreak, a wine festival in Mount Airy, Saturday.
The raffle consisted of contestants purchasing a ticket for $100, with the winner taking home a Fiat. The requirement for winning is disputed, with Chaloupka stating whoever won the raffle then had to "...toss a Frisbee completely through both windows of the car to be eligible to win.
...
In Thursday's written statement, which Chaloupka said would be the final one he makes on the event, Chaloupka apologized for any misunderstanding or misconceptions which may have occurred at Budbreak, but said at least one Rotary official and a fire department official were on hand when he showed where the car would have to be displayed and explained the rules.
He also reiterated his claim that he told contestants about the rule as he sold tickets, and that the tickets clearly stated a full list of rules could be found on a website. It was not clear what website he referred to, and an e-mail requesting that information from him went unanswered.
On the website amadourwinery.com, on Thursday there we no rules posted for the contest, although a legal note said that in any raffle held by the winery, 20 percent of the proceeds would go to the recipient after advertising, legal, and other costs were paid. Chaloupka did say in his statement on Thursday a scholarship was awarded Saturday, although he did not say who was the recipient or how much was given.
In his written statement on Thursday Chaloupka said he met with festival organizer Bob Meineke and North State Winery owner Ben Webb to verify and understand the final placement of the promotional car on Main Street. Webb said Chaloupka was upset with the initial position of the car and insisted it be moved.
...
After the automobile was moved to a spot in front of Leon's Burgers, Webb said Chaloupka mentioned a Frisbee toss as being part of the contest.
...
Meineke maintains Chaloupka never told him of that requirement, and the Rotary, along with the Downtown Business Association, issued a statement earlier this week in which they said the blame for any problems rests with Chaloupka.
...
He apologized and they (Meineke and Chaloupka) went out to the street and then came back with my ticket and put $100 on the counter.
...
This is nothing more than a "he said, she said" argument, with David Chaloupka clearly outnumbered. If I were him, I'd be ashamed to face the people I lied about and deceived, but that's just me. How this man can think that what he did would simply be overlooked and forgotten is beyond me.
The whole point should come down to the last line of the article, and it should have added that "Mr. Chaloupka has agreed to crawl back into whichever hole he came out of."

He said that person was Chaloupka.
...
Further questions regarding the contest should be directed to David Chaloupka of Amadour Winery and Vineyard, the contest sponsor."
Chaloupka did not return a telephone message left for him Saturday night after the raffle. In a brief telephone interview Tuesday Chaloupka said the purpose of the event was to do something for the community and he said an article in Sunday's Mount Airy News about the controversy was "rude and not politically correct.
...
It is my opinion that this person, ("David Chaloupka, who said he is the owner of Amadour Winery and Vineyards that ran the raffle, told her that she had to toss a Frisbee into the car's open window from a point estimated to be about 90 feet away" Mt. Airy News.) is a cheat and reminds me of a "winey" loser that made the rules up as he went!!
...
Mr. Chaloupka messed up and now he needs to man-up. All he has to do is apologize for his error and make everyone whole. And we need to accept his apology and assume he has learned from his mistake.
Moving forward, Mr. Chaloupka has a chance to prove himself by developing his vineyard, winery, etc.

He has all the qualifications!

David Chaloupka, owner of Amadour Winery and Vineyards, which will open this fall in the Dobson area, worked with the general manager of Fiat of the Triad out of Greensboro, Pamela Shelton, to secure a FIAT 2013 limited edition Abarth car that will be on display at Budbreak.
...
Chaloupka is selling tickets to win the rare car for $100 each during Budbreak. If enough tickets are sold, the car will be given away during the festival.
"Our hope and goal is to give it out that day, as long as ticket sales can cover the insurance policy," explained Chaloupka.
"I want to support the viticulture program at Surry Community College. Prior to this year, they had no scholarship program and I wanted to make a difference in the community and stand up for a great program that I believe in. This will be an ongoing event with different fundraisers each semester for the program," said Chaloupka.
The Surry Community College Viticulture program will award its first scholarship on center stage at Budbreak. Chaloupka said they were able to narrow down the applicants to three individuals and finally made the decision based on which applicant had the potential to make the most contributions to the program.
