4th Annual Holiday Open House – Raffle Info

UPDATE 12/7/16 – Raffle to benefit Main Street Ellicott City has been extended to Monday, Dec. 12th, 2016 at 5pm.  Keep reading for all the details…

I’m looking forward to welcoming everyone who will be attending my annual Holiday Open House this Saturday, and sharing some great conversation, delicious snacks and a glass of bubbly.  As I mentioned in the evite, we will be raffling off a variety of prizes and donating all the proceeds to the Main Street Ellicott City Recovery fund. Some of you may have heard they had a grand re-opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Main Street this past Saturday, but there are still several stores and restaurants working hard to reopen, and they still need our help.

Soooo, even if you can’t make it to the Open House, you can still help out by buying a raffle ticket or two.  🙂

First, let me show and tell you about the fabulous prizes you can win….

An Official Maryland Terps jacket (various sizes available) – $75 value

Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.  To purchase raffle tickets:, click here to go to the Ellicott City Partnership page.

Then click the large “Click Here To Donate Now!” link.

Fill in the amount you’re donating, and make sure it corresponds to the number of tickets you want.  For example:     1 ticket = $5.00,  3 tickets = $15,  5 tickets = $20, 10 tickets = $40, etc.

Important!! After you fill in the rest of your information, at the very bottom in the Comments section type the words The Wellness Scoop.  This last step is the only way the Partnership staff will have to let me know who donated (and thereby purchased raffle tickets).  So if you leave it out, your donation will be greatly appreciated, but you will not be in the drawings for any of the fabulous prizes above.

Lastly, you must complete your donation by no later than 12pm, Friday, Dec. 2nd,  5pm, Monday, Dec. 12th, 2016.  I realize that doesn’t give you much time, so why not click here and make your donation now, while you’re thinking about it!

Of course, if you’re coming to the Open House… and I hope you are…. you will be able to buy all the raffle tickets you’d like that day.

Winners will be drawn during the Open House on Saturday, Dec. 3rd, but you do not need to be present to win.  If you’re from out of town, and your name is drawn for one of the Pilates lessons, we will put your ticket back in the hat, and draw another name.  That way you’ll still be eligible for the other prizes.

Thank you all in advance for your generosity!
