Win cash or luxury and practical gift items for Christmas!
Guests will have many opportunities to win cash or popular holiday gift items for their loved ones, friends, and themselves. All prizes will reflect an impressive mix of new – still in the box or shrink-wrapped – or gently used items that will appeal to all.
Our auctions and raffles are designed to be fair and fun. As with any non-profit organization, monies raised from these activities are designed to support the operating expenses of our parish. So good luck and thank you for participating!
Increase your chances of winning popular electronics – purchased new – with each purchase of a $10 booklet containing 3 tickets.
The main raffle will feature a grand prize of $1,000 cash, an overnight breakfast & dinner package for two at the Providence Marriott, and third prize of AirPods 3. Tickets will be collected all weekend, with the winning tickets drawn after 3 p.m. Sunday, November 3.
50/50 Cash Raffle
If electronics don’t appeal to you, you can always go for the cash. It is simple: One winner will keep 50% of the total amount collected for the weekend. Last year, a total of $1200 was collected with the winner taking home $600. Tickets can be purchased the weekend of the bazaar; unlike the main raffle, there will be no ticket pre-purchases allowed. The winner will be drawn and announced after 3 p.m. Sunday, November 3.
Penny Social Raffle
Also known as a “Chinese Auction,” a Penny Social is the combination of a raffle and a silent auction. Guests purchase tickets and may place as many tickets as they wish toward their desired item(s).
This year’s Penny Social will feature nearly 50, thoughtfully arranged gift baskets – perfect holiday gifts for friends, family members, or co-workers – that will appeal to coffee and tea lovers, sports enthusiasts, new parents, parents of young children and teens, movie buffs, pet lovers, home improvement doers, chocolate lovers, and many other interests.
Purchase a booklet of 20 tickets for just $10! Each basket will have its own ticket bin to accept (bids). Bidding will begin Friday at 5 PM and continue throughout the weekend until 3 PM Sunday, November 3, at which time the Penny Social will be closed and the winners announced or contacted.
