Participants in a Chinese raffle purchase individual tickets for an established price, like a traditional raffle.

The purchaser of that ticket wins the item.
Participants in a Chinese raffle can place many individual tickets in a container associated with an auction item. The silent auction period lasts for a specific period of time established by the organisation hosting the event.
The laws governing raffles and charitable fund raising vary from one state to another. Before embarking on a Chinese raffle, confirm what the law says in your state. A state's attorney general's office typically provides this type of information.
