Speaking of the Raffle...
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Auction raffles, there are two different ones you can enter. For the main raffle, tickets are one for $15, three for $25 and 10 for $75. Each ticket provides you with an entry to win one of the following three prizes:
Grand Prize: New York Weekend for Two: Enjoy a bite of the Big Apple! One night hotel stay in Manhattan, $300 Ticketmaster gift card to use for a Broadway show of your choosing, dinner, dessert and more!
Nationals Baseball for Four: Four terrific seats for a mutually agreed upon date during the 2019 season. Club level seating in Section 215, Row B, seats 5-8.
Evening at the Anthem and Bluejacket: The Anthem is the latest entertainment venue on the DC waterfront. Look at all the concerts options available and choose a show there with a $250 Live Nation gift card. Also included is a $150 gift card for Neighborhood Restaurant Group. Among their many options is the brewery Bluejacket, with its in-house restaurant The Arsenal, located at the nearby Navy Yard.
Oculus Go 64GB Virtual Reality Headset: Oculus Go is the latest and greatest in Virtual Reality tech. Without the need to connect to a phone or computer, the Oculus Go lets you attend live events in VR, like sitting court side at NBA games, front rows for live Concerts, or watching movies while meeting up with friends! Named the "Best Non-Phone Gadget of 2018" by Forbes Magazine, this device is one of the coolest tech gadgets on the planet!
In addition to this raffle, there is a second drawing for the "Best of the Live" Raffle. These raffle tickets cost $50 each. Here's how it works: Moments before the Live Auction beings, we will draw the winning ticket. The winner may choose any live Auction item, and walk away with it, without bidding, and for no additional fees! That item will no longer be a part of the Live Auction.
Try your luck in one or both of our raffles. The drawings will be at the Auction on March 2. You do not have to be present at the Auction to win!
