    Hi, I work for a Cardiology Clinic, we help patients that are affected with multiple sclerosis, most cannot afford the 10K treatment so we set up a raffle system that would allow them to raise the funds needed. We hit a brick wall with paypal as the do not allow raffles. We did not know this at the time, as they (paypal) did allow the sale of about 1,300 $10.00US tickets we have already treated the patients but we have 2 problems, 1. Paypal has not released the funds so we can pay the hospital and 2. We want to continue the raffles but how can we without a service like paypal? any advice is appreciated.
