Default Raffles (Personal) Legal in VA??

I'm hoping someone on these forums knows the answer to this. I have searched and searched to discover if a personal--not a charitable organization--raffle is legal in the state of Virginia.
In other words, we want to have an ART FUNDRAISING raffle featuring a huge canvas and the VA codes are cryptic for lay people to understand.
If anyone knows or has had raffles with no problems or simply knows the ACTUAL law (not just the definitions or what the code unclearly says) please let me know.

THANKS!

Again, I have looked up and read the gobs of info on VA code but none are lucid and I am terrified to enter into a raffle not knowing if it's truly legal.

Default Pushing this up

Anybody?

Once again, this is a personal fundraiser that's art-related. Not associated w/ any church or non-profit or official organization.

You should consult with your attorney. That's what they're there for.
