Due to the continued risks and restrictions associated with COVID-19, Project Love is canceling the June 20, 2020 Outdoor Adventure fundraiser.
There is no reschedule date for this in-person event.
Project Love is continuing to sell chances to win the grand prize package of a new kayak filled with a great assortment of outdoor gear, a $700 value.
In addition to the kayak, the grand prize package includes a fishing excursion, outdoor camping gear, travel mugs, waterproof backpack, sleeping bag, fishing pole, waterproof camp bag, flashlight, waterproof cellphone case, lantern, Erie Distillery vodka, beach towel, Penn Shore wine and a paddle.
Tickets are $10 each for this raffle. Tickets are on sale to adults now through June 19.
Tickets are available from any Project Love board member, or by contacting Sharon Wagner at 814-881-2569 or Sharon.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proceeds will help Project Love, a nonprofit organization, fulfill its mission of providing Christmas gifts to children, from birth to age 13, of North East families who are experiencing hardships.
“We understand the uncertainty families are facing during these challenging times, and we recognize the additional support which many community members will need during the upcoming holiday season,” Michele Parrish, Project Love fundraiser chair said. “For these reasons, we have decided to continue by holding only the grand prize package raffle so that we may help to meet some of the needs of the North East community. Items for the gift baskets raffle, which were generously donated by businesses and individuals, will be retained for our 2021 fundraiser.”
Anyone who has already purchased a ticket and wants a chance to win the grand prize package of the kayak and gear will be eligible for the grand prize. Those who already bought an event ticket, and who do not want to be entered in the drawing for the kayak package, should call or email Sharon Wagner before June 19 to request a full refund.
Refunds will not be provided after June 19.
Project Love invites community adults to help support its mission by purchasing its kayak raffle tickets.
The more tickets purchased, the more chances to win! Winner need not be present.
The drawing for the kayak grand prize package will take place on June 20, at 10 a.m. via Facebook Live and a post of recorded video.
Follow Project Love on Facebook to watch live and see who wins the $700 prize package. The winner will be contacted that day.
