Dream Raffle for Music Lovers to Benefit Nantucket PASCON

April 14, 2018 0 comments

Picture this: you and three friends at a live concert or theatrical performance of your choice anywhere within the continental US, at any time during the year – airfare and hotel included.  And the whole package for all four of you cost just a $100 raffle ticket!

Seem too good to be true?

This concert experience of a lifetime has been enjoyed by 4 lucky winners (and their friends) since 2014, when Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket first offered this very special raffle to help with their fundraising efforts.  Only 200 tickets will be sold at $100 each, so your chance of winning is high.

For music lovers, fans, and enthusiasts, this is the opportunity for the live music experience of a lifetime! Get up close to your favorite artist, feel the vibes of the music for yourself, sing along with thousands of fellow fans, all from your lower level seats. Whether you are a seasoned concertgoer or have never been, there is no rush of excitement quite like the energetic thrill of a concert: the first moments of the performance, seeing your musical idol in person, the bright lights, and the shouts for an encore at the end!

The raffle winner will receive for four:
• Round trip Economy Class air
• 3 days/2 nights hotel accommodations at your chosen destination in two guestrooms
• 4 mezzanine or club level tickets to your chosen concert or theater event in the contiguous United States
• Daily complimentary breakfast
• All room-related taxes
• Free concierge reservation service

In 2015, winner Jennifer Hashem went with her friends to see Bruce Springsteen in California. “We even have the lucky ball “83” that was pulled for the win!! We still buy tickets each year hoping for a repeat win!!”  Last year’s winner, Skip Tuttle, is taking his friends to Nashville to see the Foo Fighters.  This year the winner could be you!  Tickets are available now at the Auction page at pascon.org

The 2018 winning raffle number will be drawn at PASCON’s annual Dreamcatcher Auction, held in the Nantucket Yacht Club on June 3.  Raffle participants do not have to be present to win, but why not enjoy the cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, raw bar, dinner, and dancing that the festive evening offers? Tickets to the 25th Annual Dreamcatcher Dinner & Auction are also available at the PASCON website.
