Let the raffle-ticket buying begin!
That’s right, an online raffle, and you don’t have to be present to win. The tickets are available for a suggested donation of $1 each. You can make a payment directly to my fundraising website, or send it through paypal. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can come track me down in person. I’m pretty sure that with my fundraiser and papypal, there’s a $5 per transaction, so you’ll have to get at least 5 tickets.
“But what are the prizes?” you ask! Let me tell you!
SO FAR there are four fabulous packages you can win. There will undoubtedly be more than that, but I have to designate which prizes will be for the Bingo rounds, and more donations are still coming in. Here are the four prizes I have designated for the raffle:
- Hair Care Package – CIBU Hi–Ya! Keratin Reconstructive Shampoo, Conditioner, and Ancient Serum courtesy of The Hair Cuttery AND a Hot Tools 1″ Flat Iron —- a $100 value!
- Cozy at Home Package – a King-Size Handmade Quilt (110″ X 97″) in shades of white, purple and pale blue courtesy of the Humble Hands Sewing Ministry of First Baptist Church Orlando, fuzzy slippers made by Becky (also purple), a jar candle and a hardback copy of A Year in the World by Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun —- a $150 value!
- Something to Wine About Package – A bottle of Merlot courtesy of Redlight Redlight, a Waring Pro Cordless Wine Opener, and four wine glasses —- a $110 value!
- Living in a Griller’s Paradise – a tabletop camp stove, a George Foreman 8-Serving Classic Plate Grill AND a $25 gift card to The Meat House —- a $125 value!
And there’s more coming – I’ll post as soon as I know. The winners will be announced at the Bingo event on Sunday night (the 17th). You obviously do not have to be present to win. If you purchase tickets using my fundraising website, NFT, it will automatically email me notifying me of your donation with whatever email address you put in there. When I receive the email, I will immediately enter your tickets in the drawing for you. Should you win, I will email you at the address NFT gives me. If you use paypal, send me a quick email with your preferred method of contacting you because paypal will not automatically send me anything. It seems confusing, but really it isn’t.
I wanted to make this available since most of my friends are out of town. However, if it is at all possible for you to come to the Bingo event, you should. There will be more amazing prizes to win including Disney and Universal tickets, and the jackpot prize is a Bose Sound Dock Series II for your iPod – a $200 value! Please come!
But no matter what you do, share this post with all your friends so they can buy tickets, too! Thanks!
