Welcome to Eastside Theater Company’s 2021 Raffle!
Just like most other performing arts organizations, this past year has been incredibly challenging for us. We typically produce 3-5 shows per year, which is where the majority of our operating funds comes from. It has been over a year since we have been able to perform a live show. While we are hopeful that we can produce a live show later this year, for now, we are finding ways to keep going.
This raffle is one way that you can help us. We held our first raffle in 2019, as part of the Snow-Cap Fill-A-Bag campaign. Snow Cap is a local food bank that helps those with food insecurity in our community, and that has increased this past year as well. We raised over $4000 in 2019, and we allocated half of the proceeds to Snow-Cap. We are doing the same this year, so for every $5 Raffle Ticket that you purchase, half helps Eastside Theater and their mission to make the performing arts accessible to all in our community. The other half goes to Snow-Cap, to help with their mission to help those with food insecurity in our community.
It’s a win-win, but it gets even better, because thanks to some amazing business partners, we have some fantastic prizes that you can win. This includes Roundtrip Airfare for two from Alaska Airlines – and this can be used anywhere they fly, with no restrictions. That’s a $2500 prize. Thanks to Riverview Community Bank, we are giving away an Apple iPad, as well as Apple AirPods. We have many local businesses, including Gresham Ford, who have donated great prizes that will be given away via a livestream presentation in June. A full list of prizes can be seen here, and we are continuing to add prizes so keep checking for that!
How to buy tickets
Purchasing Raffle Tickets is easy, just click the link and pay online. We’ll get you a copy of your ticket stubs…and while many of our prizes are provided by local businesses, you don’t need to be local to win. We will ship most prizes (if it is a large gift basket, that will be local pickup only) but the Alaska Air tickets, or the Apple products, or any gift cards can be mailed if you are not in the area.
more ways to support etc
While you’re here, please considering purchasing a ticket for our production of Anne of Green Gables. Due to restrictions, we are unable to perform in front of a live audience, so we are filming and streaming. A $10 ticket gives your entire family a viewing of this wonderful production between June 1-20th. It will go a long way in helping Eastside Theater as well. Thank you for your support of Eastside Theater. We can’t wait to see you next season!
