Here are some important details about this year's raffle:
- Tickets are a $10 donation each, with all money going to the Shannon Christy and Live Like Maria Memorial Funds
- We are selling raffle tickets in advance of the event- you just need to paypal your donation to email@example.com. Please select the no fee option when paying with paypal.
- The event itself is free, but we do ask that you make a donation to the memorial funds through purchasing at least one raffle ticket (which should be easy to do with all these awesome prizes)!
- I am undecided yet on if you will have to be present to win. More to come as the event gets closer!
The raffle is a fundraiser for two memorial funds that honor the memories of two amazing women from the southeast paddling community. The Shannon Christy Memorial Fund honor's Shannon's memory by supporting causes to empower and support women and girls in the outdoors and otherwise. The Live Like Maria Memorial Fund supports causes that were close to Maria’s heart, including paddling instruction and outdoor experiences for youth, river conservation and access, and empowering women in outdoor adventure pursuits. All money raised will be split between the two memorial funds, both of which are established at the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.
