It must be charity season. I got this in my email today and thought I’d share:
Win a Wine Cellar IX, is a raffle to benefit programs such as Camp Wekandu, a summer residential camp for children and teens with juvenile arthritis and related illnesses. Prizes consist of three fabulous packages of wine and consolation prizes, for a total of twenty-three lucky winners. Tickets are $40 each or three for $100. The lucky winners will be drawn on May 15, 2008. To print an order form or find out details on prizes and contest rules, please visit our web page at www.winawinecellar.org or call 513-636-7689.
I checked the web site. It does not mean someone will come to your house and build a wine cellar for you. (That was my first thought.) It does mean you can win enough wine that you’ll need a wine cellar built for you!
Here’s a little more info:
Help the Friends of the Special Treatment Center, who raise funds for children with juvenile arthritis at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center,
and maybe get some terrific wine while you’re at it. This year’s top
raffle prizes are wonderful collections of wine from France, Italy,
Spain, Australia, plus some excellent wine from California.
The drawing will be held on Thursday, May 15, 2008, at the hospital. Here are the prizes:
