2019 Raffle Extravaganza

How the Raffle Extravaganza Works:

 

The ACE Raffle Extravaganza runs from September 6 - December 6, 2019 with four rounds of drawings. 

Raffle Extravaganza is a limited ticket raffle, meaning each item has a small number of tickets for sale. This means better odds of winning and the ability to buy tickets just for the prizes you’d like to win. Not interested in “stuff”? We have several prizes that offer a unique experience with a local artist or business, and we also have a 50/50 raffle running the full length of the Raffle Extravaganza (see below for details). 

New raffle prizes each month! To keep the raffle fun and offer you more chances to win, prizes will be released in four batches and winners will be drawn at different Art Center East events this fall. **You do not need to be present to win,** but it sure is fun to be there when the winners are announced! 

We know this is a tad confusing, but the good news is it means lots of fun prizes from local artists and businesses, and lots of chances to win. Plus, we’ll be sending you reminders - follow along via the ACE e-newsletter and our Facebook and Instagram pages, or directly below on this page. Check back frequently - new prizes will be added as the raffle unfolds!

The Fine Print:

Each raffle item has a finite quantity of tickets available. Once the last ticket is sold, no more tickets may be purchased for that item.

You do not need to be present at a drawing to win. Because you give your contact info when you purchase a raffle ticket, we know how to get a hold of you. We will also publish raffle winners online and in the e-newsletter that follows each drawing.

You must pick up your prize at Art Center East (1006 Penn Avenue, La Grande) by December 23, 2019 at 4:00 pm. After that time, unclaimed prizes become the property of Art Center East.

If you live outside the area and would like to purchase a raffle ticket, we will gladly ship any prizes you win at your expense. Please contact info@artcentereast.org to inquire about rates.

Proceeds from the Raffle Extravaganza go toward Art Center East’s general operating expenses, improving the quality and quantity of arts and culture programming available to the community. Thank you for your support!
