Can raffle ticket sellers be held accountable?

We have a nonprofit children’s youth program that holds a mandatory fundraiser every year. This year we tried a raffle. About one-third of our participants did not return the tickets and/or monies raised. Can we hold them responsible for the monies not returned? I feel we should at least be able to hold them responsible for returning unsold tickets so that we know they did not just pocket the money and tell the people that their ticket wasn't picked.
