Through October 31, 2013, participants had the opportunity to buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win services and gift cards from favorite places at Renaissance in Ridgeland. The $25 ticket benefited fund for the girls and entered the participant in the drawing to win a prize package valued at $1,500! Now that's our kind of fun!
Tickets could be purchased online from shop.fundforthegirls.com, or bought in person at the Renaissance Management offices. Tickets were also available at "Pink Night Out" on October 31 prior to the drawing.
Tickets purchased online were mailed free of charge. The drawing was held on October 31 during "Pink Night Out" at The Belhaven. Raffle ticket holders did not have to be present to win.
Some of the prizes the winner received included two nights' accommodation at The Hyatt Place Hotel, located at Renaissance, lunch for two at Mint the Restaurant, and a cooking class for two at Williams-Sonoma....and many more!
