Fundraising Raffle

Annual Fundraising Raffle

Since 2014 the board has chosen to do fundraising rather than raise the cost of garden plots.

Each year we raffle off tickets for a $100 Agway gift certificate. Tickets are one for a dollar, five for $3, and 10 for only $5. We usually sell raffle tickets at Agway on Mother’s Day, at the Ithaca Plant Sale in May, from 9 to 1 pm, and at GreenStar Cooperative Market a couple times. And of course, you can buy tickets any time from board members and many gardeners as well. We ask all gardeners to help sell, and if possible buy, lots of tickets. The drawing will be held at the end of the June Saturday workday (June 24, 2017), and the winner does not have to be present, they will be contacted by phone. Please contact any board member to arrange to get tickets to sell (president@ithacacommunitygarden.org), or come prepared to buy some at the workdays!

THE MORE GARDENERS WHO SELL TICKETS, THE MORE MONEY WE RAISE. LET’S DREAM ABOUT RAISING ENOUGH MONEY TO COVER OUR ANNUAL EXPENSES AND HELP PAY FOR THE PORTABLE TOILET AT THE GARDENS.

As an added incentive, the gardener who raises the most money through ticket sales will have their plot fee waived next year.
