Raising funds

Almost eight years ago, my lovie and I moved to Guelph because of its thriving arts community. The many painters, illustrators, musicians, designers, writers, filmmakers, chefs and photographers that surround us are the very 'creative class' that other cities crave. The Guelph Arts Council plays an important role in our city's success, and as a board member, I'd like to ask your support by purchasing a ticket to our annual fundraiser. 
'Fete Romantique' is now in its 35th year. This raffle not only offers over 25 chances to win, but each and every ticket purchase assists the Guelph Arts Council's operating budget.  As a non-profit arts organization, we make use of every single dollar by offering arts-related services, awards, by increasing awareness and developing artistic endeavors in the community.
The grand prize is a catered gourmet dinner for six served in a Guelph heritage home on February 12 (ergo the 'romantique'). Limousine transportation, onsite sommelier, and attentive wait staff add to the luxury and ensure the evening is flawless. The secondary prizes are (to me) even more appealing...Hillside Festival and Guelph Jazz Festival passes, KW Symphony tickets, gift certificates to The Bookshelf, Babel Fish Bistro, Carden Street Cafe, and With the Grain, just to name a few.
Tickets are $15 each or two for $25 and the draw date of January 27 is quickly approaching! If you would like to purchase a ticket, please contact me ASAP and I'll mail them directly to your door.

On behalf of the Guelph Arts Council, thanks for your support!
