The Local Restaurant Employee must be (a) at least 18 years of age (or the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence if older than 18), (b) a citizen or legal resident of and physically residing in one (1) of the fifty (50) United States – excluding Alabama, Massachusetts, and Mississippi – or the District of Columbia, and (c) an employee (for any time between January 1, 2020 –November 11, 2020) at a restaurant (defined as quick serve, fast casual, casual dining, or fine dining) or, alternately, an employee within the food service or food production industry. The Local Restaurant Employee may be related to the Prizewinner. The Local Restaurant Employee will be required to contact Sponsor (in accordance with directions provided by Sponsor) and complete verification documents. Delivery of the Tip is subject to verification and compliance with additional terms presented to the Local Restaurant Employee at the time of contact with Sponsor. If the Local Restaurant Employee cannot be verified, the Tip may be forfeited. The Tip will not be awarded to the Prizewinner. Once a Local Restaurant Employee is identified by Prizewinner and contacts Sponsor, Local Restaurant Employee may not be changed by Prizewinner (except as permitted by Sponsor in its sole discretion).
Each Local Restaurant Employee may be required to submit an affidavit of eligibility / release of liability / acceptance agreement (collectively, the “Restaurant Employee Affidavit”) and return the Restaurant Employee Affidavit within the time period specified before being eligible to receive their Tip.

However, any such forfeiture will not affect the Donation or Prizewinner’s right to receive other portions of the Prize awarded. Local Restaurant Employee will be solely responsible for any taxes (federal, state, and local) and all other costs and expenses associated with Tip acceptance or use.
PRIZEWINNER NOTIFICATION PROCESS:
The potential Prizewinner will be notified using the Personal Information provided during entry by any of email, telephone, mail, text message, a post on the potentially winning entry, or through a direct message on a social media platform (if applicable) (method to be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion) in a commercially reasonable time after the drawing. The potential Prizewinner must respond within twenty-four (24) hours and in accordance with the instructions in the notification or the Prize may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be forfeited. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for false, incorrect, changed, incomplete or illegible contact information. Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending of an email, text, direct message on a social media platform, and/or placing of a phone call, one (1) day after sending via a delivery service, or two (2) days after mailing. A potential Prizewinner who provides a P.O. Box may be required to provide an alternative physical address and this may cause a delay in notification and acceptance, so use of a P.O. Box is discouraged. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for electronic communications that are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, insufficient space in Entrant’s email or voicemail inbox to receive messages, or any limitations associated with receipt or delivery of text messages.
Each potential Prizewinner may be required to submit an affidavit of eligibility / release of liability / prize acceptance agreement (collectively, the “Affidavit”) and return the Affidavit within the time period specified at notification before being eligible to receive their Prize. In addition, for any prize with a value of $600 or more, the potential Prizewinner shall be required to return a completed IRS Form W-9 to the Sponsor prior to Sponsor’s delivery of the prize (the “W9”). All Prize claims, including any required Affidavit, are subject to verification by Sponsor. If any potential Prizewinner fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit and W9 within the time period required by Sponsor or if the Prize or Prize notification is returned as rejected, faulty, unclaimed or returned as undeliverable to such potential Prizewinner, such potential Prizewinner may be disqualified and an alternate Prizewinner may be selected. Non-compliance shall result in disqualification and award of the Prize to an alternate Prizewinner. If any potential Prizewinner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules and all other additional or supplemental rules or instructions, or if the potential Prizewinner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the Prize, or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Prizewinner may be disqualified and an alternate potential Prizewinner may be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide Prizewinners come forward seeking to claim Prizes in excess of the number of each type of Prize set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of Prizes available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such Prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential Prizewinner.
ADDITIONAL PRIZE INFORMATION:
Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a background check on the potential Prizewinner and each potential Prizewinner agrees to execute any additional documentation necessary for and to cooperate fully in any such background check conducted by or on behalf of Sponsor.
Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen cash, cash equivalent or gift cards, or other forms of prize distributed. In the event of such a loss, Sponsor shall have the right, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to disqualify the Prizewinner or to award to that Prizewinner the remaining elements of the Prize which shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s prize obligation to the Prizewinner and no additional compensation will be awarded.
Terms and conditions of gift cards apply. Any taxes (federal, state, and local) and all other costs and expenses associated with Prize acceptance or use and not specified in these Official Rules as being part of a Prize will be the sole responsibility of the Prizewinner.

Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any Prize or any portion thereof with another Prize or Prize component of equal or greater value for any reason, including unavailability of the stated Prize. Entrants waive the right to assert, as a cost of winning any Prize, any and all costs of verification and any liability and publicity which might arise from claiming or seeking to claim said Prize.
If Prizewinner does not accept the entire Prize, the unaccepted Prize (or part of the Prize) will be forfeited and Sponsor will have no further obligation with respect to that Prize or any portion of that Prize. Sponsor will have no liability for a potential Prizewinner’s failure or inability to accept a Prize for any reason. Any failure to use a Prize after acceptance does not relieve the Prizewinner of their tax obligations associated with winning the Prize. No transfers, prize substitutions or cash redemptions will be made, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prizewinner is strictly prohibited from selling, auctioning, trading or otherwise transferring the opportunity to receive the Prize, except with Sponsor’s permission, which may be granted or withheld for any reason in its sole discretion.

GENERAL CONDITIONS OF ENTRY:
All Entrants, as a condition of entry, agree that they have not been required to purchase any kind of Internet, wireless, or data service whatsoever in order to participate in and/or enter the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for the actions of Entrants in connection with the Sweepstakes, including Entrants’ attempts to circumvent the Official Rules or otherwise interfere with the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes. Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of this Sweepstakes, or whom Sponsor believes to be causing malfunction, error, disruption or damage may be disqualified. Additionally, any attempt to cheat the Sweepstakes, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor, may result in immediate disqualification of Entrant, as well as other possible consequences, including disqualification from any and all existing and future sweepstakes. ANY ATTEMPT BY A PERSON TO DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE (INCLUDING ANY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM OR APPLICATION) OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THIS SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK ALL LEGAL AND EQUITABLE REMEDIES FROM AND AGAINST ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify (or terminate the Prize of) any individual who is found to be, or suspected of, acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike, obscene, immoral, or disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person.
Entrant further understands and agrees that all rights under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of California (“Section 1542”) and any similar law of any state or territory of the United States that may be applicable with respect to the foregoing release(s) are hereby expressly and forever waived. Entrant acknowledges that Section 1542 provides that: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.” The releases hereunder are intended to apply to all claims not known or suspected to exist with the intent of waiving the effect of laws requiring the intent to release future unknown claims.
The parties agree that the Sweepstakes and these Official Rules will be governed, construed, and interpreted under the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction) which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California.
Entrant, Sponsor, and the other Released Parties (each, a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”) each agree to fully and finally settle all disputes pertaining to the Sweepstakes, administration of the Sweepstakes, and/or these Official Rules only through binding arbitration; provided, however, Sponsor and The James Beard Foundation shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California and any other court with jurisdiction over the Parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The Parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either Party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Los Angeles, California or – where required by the arbitration service’s rules – in or near your home town. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of Entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either Party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
