Today’s Featured Prizes
These are our steampunk-themed prizes. The costumer’s bundle containing a feather fan, vintage gloves, wire-rimmed glasses, brass key and opera glasses is donated by Danielle Ackley-McPhail. The airship painting is an original work of art painted by contributor Christine Norris expressly for the launch. The stuffed airship is donated by contributor David Lee Summers and was hand-crocheted by his wife, the talented Kumie Wise.
How it Works
Just a note on how you can win said prizes. At any event where we are holding a launch party we have a standing practice that whoever buys one of the books launching gets a free raffle ticket for each one. Once you have a free ticket, if you wish you can purchase additional tickets for $1 each, all the way up until the drawing. Once you arrive at the party you can peruse the prize table and see if any of them interest you. At that point you take your two-part raffle ticket and separate the perforated sides. You put one half of the ticket in the bin in front of the prize you want to win, the other half you put back in your pocket until it is time for the drawing. No need to put your name on either half of the ticket because you–or someone representing you–must be present at the time of the drawing to collect your prize.
