Win Big with AOR's 50/50 Raffle

26 Apr 2015

raffleAs AOR’s new fundraising chair, I’ve been working on a fundraising plan for 2015 and beyond. Our goal for this year is to raise $5,000 in additional funds. This spring we are holding a 50/50 raffle in which one lucky winner will take home half of the proceeds of the raffle. The more tickets that are sold, the bigger the pot grows. 

Each ticket is $20. Our goal is to sell 250 tickets, which will result in a pot of $5,000, half of which will go to the winner! 

Tickets are available for purchase online from April 29 to June 2. Tickets will be available for purchase in person at Sustainable Oregon 2015, AOR's annual conference, at the Riverhouse Hotel and Convention Center in Bend June 3-5. The winner will be selected on June 5 at 2pm and announced at the conference. You do not need to be present to win.

Please share the raffle link with your friends and family so they can take a chance to win big, while supporting the great work of AOR.
