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
  • 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)!

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.
