CEDRR: Fruits of Labor Community Prize Draw | Vermont Companies
While some of our biggest events may have changed over the past few weeks, an exciting offering, originally scheduled for our Parade of Heroes + Community Celebration on August 28, is still in full swing. The staff of Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region (CEDRR), as well as The Paramount Theater and Come Alive Outside, are delighted to announce the first annual Fruits of Labor community raffle.
As a fundraiser for all three organizations, the raffle is designed to offer a collection of varied prizes with something for everyone to enjoy. Raffle tickets are on sale for $ 100 each and only 500 tickets will be sold. With 20 prizes available ranging from $ 500 to $ 6,500 each, your chances of winning are great! All three organizations are extremely grateful for the generous prize donations from various individuals and businesses in the region.
The long list of available prices really has something for everyone. As many of us haven’t traveled much lately, our biggest prize – valued at $ 6,500 – is sure to grab some attention! Legendary Fairmont Vacations include five-day / four-night accommodations, round-trip airfare and more in all participating Fairmont listings in the contiguous United States and Canada.
We know that this region has many Boston fans who will be eager to purchase tickets for the chance to see the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics or New England Patriots. Each of these packages includes additional benefits such as hotel stays, airline tickets and / or parking.
Our friends who love the snow and enjoy the ski season will keep their fingers crossed for the Killington Resort winter pass and / or the new Atomic ski accessories. Speaking of ski season, a heat pump from FW Webb, as well as an energy audit from NeighborWorks, are also available for a lucky winner to help them through our colder months.
Our neighbors who are perhaps bigger fans of the warmer months can enjoy an LL Bean kayak or a golf package that includes four green fees and cart rentals at Rutland County Club, Proctor Pittsford Country Club and the Killington Golf Course.
There are also options to enjoy anytime of the year, such as 10 sets of two tickets to Paramount Theater, a one-year membership to MINT – Rutland’s Makerspace, a family package with a long list of activities, a executive coaching session by Kramer Consulting Group or Kara Richardson, and a relaxing spa package to pamper yourself at Five Elements Salon & Day Spa, Sunny Mountain Nails, and more.
If you’re looking to spruce up your home, two lucky winners will be able to take advantage of a Spice Your Home package that includes a variety of offers or landscaping valued at $ 1,000 from Carpenter & Costin.
We can’t forget our foodies with offers such as a dinner with gift certificates from 12 different restaurants, a private chef’s dinner and cooking class, or a treat basket to hone your pastry skills.
When we said there was something for everyone, we meant it. The winners will be drawn on Saturday, October 9 from 3 p.m. and the first winner will be able to choose their prize from the list available and so on. The winner will be called if their name is drawn, and they must be available (or a designated representative) to answer or return the call within five minutes.
For anyone who would like to purchase a ticket or see a full list of fare descriptions, you can do so by visiting https://rutlandvermont.com/communityraffle/ and your ticket stubs will be mailed to you directly.
Don’t wait too long to buy your tickets – we know we’ll sell out fast! As always, a big thank you to the members of our community for their continued support, and good luck to all who participate.
