Gebhard Woods Festival Raffle
Once again the Gebhard Woods Festival is sponsoring a raffle. The 2018 raffle was the most successful in the history of the Festival, thanks to our generous donors and friends. All money raised from the raffle goes directly into the Festival treasury, thereby helping to fund future festivals. Raffle tickets cost only $1 individually, but much less when purchased in quantities.
As in recent years, each large instrument or item (dulcimer, stand, etc.) will have its own individual receptacle box for tickets. Therefore, if you are interested in a certain item, you can put all of your tickets into the raffle box that goes with that specific item. This means that all of the tickets in that one box will be from people hoping to win that one specific prize.
The drawings for our other valuable prizes (CDs, books, etc.) will be done from the one large raffle cage. Tickets from people hoping to win any of these prizes should be deposited here.
And as always, you DO NOT NEED TO BE PRESENT at the Sunday drawing to win.
In addition to the dozens of prizes and winners at the final drawing on Sunday, there will also be two winners every hour on the hour. One of these “hourly winners” will receive an official Gebhard Woods Festival T-shirt from the Festival Sales Booth, and the other “hourly winner” will receive a copy of Dulcimer Players News, with its accompanying CD. All hourly winners must claim their prize that day. All tickets from the hourly winners will be re-inserted into the box from which they were drawn, thereby giving that same ticket a chance to be a winner again in the Sunday drawings!
