Patron’s Pick

HOW IT WORKS:
We have curated an exciting selection of gifts and experiences for you. Tickets are available online and at the event for $50. We will sell the same number of tickets as we have items, so every ticket is guaranteed to win!

At the event, we will draw names one by one. Whoever’s name is drawn first gets to take her pick of the items. Second, the remaining items, and so on. Ticket holders have to be present to win (or assign a designee).

If you’re not there when your name is called, your name will go onto a list of those who left. We will go through all the present people in the order names are drawn.

Anyone not present will be asked what they want after the event, in the order their names came up and will get to choose from the items that weren’t picked.
