"(Australian) A raffle run to raise money for a charity." There seems to be a specific organisation called RSL Art Union that runs raffles, but I can't find usage of art union to mean a raffle. Equinox 11:27, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but you didn't look hard enough. Widespread long-term use in Australia. Search for "art union" -RSL will show the term for a dozen different charities on the first page alone.--Dmol 21:24, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Three examples of the term mentioning ticket sales.

New Art Union now selling. Every ticket you buy is helping people breathe better.[1]
Enter CPL’s current Art Union to win one of five fantastic prize packages valued up to $40,000 – it’s your choice![2]
I would like to purchase tickets at $50 each in the current Guide Dogs Queensland Art Union only.[3]

So is it ever not capitalised, or do we need to move it to Art Union? And, given the caps, are you sure this isn't the specific RSL organisation I mentioned above? Equinox 22:29, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
There are no citations in the entry, and the citations above do not seem to be durably archived. RFV-failed. - -sche (discuss) 20:30, 8 August 2011 (UTC)


discussion of RFVEdit

This is rediculous. The term is in widespread use, in both capitalisations, and is easily found as such. I would like to object to this failing RFV. I'll get cites, but as it is widespread this should not be required.--Dmol 10:33, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

I have recreated art union with 4 citations. This should be enough for it to pass this time.--Dmol 11:29, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

The last two don't seem to be durably archived (by en.Wiktionary's definition of that term), but the first three look good. :) - -sche (discuss) 03:58, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
PS, would an administrator be so kind as to restore to the page's history the revisions that were deleted when the entry failed RFV? - -sche (discuss) 03:58, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Passes. :) - -sche (discuss) 02:38, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
