But it was a rousing success! We sold $426 in raffle tickets, received $147 in online donations, and received other general donations. Plus a percentage of the Cork & Co. sales will be given to GOTR. Considering the place was really crowded I can only imagine this will be a sizeable donation. Starting at 6:30pm we had the raffle drawings every 15 minutes, and we grouped several items together so that each gift package was worth at least $100. Prizes included things like:
- Gift cards & schwag from Hill Country Running Co.
- Restaurant gift certificates (Galaxy, Mandola's)
- Mani/Pedi gift certificates (Embellish)
- Massage gift certificates (Massage Envy, BodyDynamix)
- And many other items
Everyone got to choose which package of prizes they could win, so no one went home with something they didn't want. Lots of people, complimentary cheese & fruit trays, lots of laughter, and lots of drinks! Overall, it was a huge success. I can't wait for next month!
