The Elephant Theatre Company is embarking upon its 13th year in 2009 and to celebrate / raise funds for production we are having a Season Launch Gala and Silent Auction complete with over $20,000 worth of merchandise to bid on AND a 50/50 opportunity drawing to boot! What is a 50/50 opportunity drawing you may ask? Well it’s kinda like a raffle but due to legal reasons we’re not allowed to use the word raffle, so pretend I didn’t say that word. Essentially we sell “tickets” for $5 each (or 5 for $20) – the more tickets we sell the greater the pot - the winner splits the total 50/50 with The Elephant. For example, last year we sold a little over $4000 in tickets and the winner got half of that!
Below is just a brief sampling of some of the items up for bid** in the auction:
Wii and Wii Fit
IFly gift certificate
4 passes to the Aquarium of the Pacific
House Seats to Wicked
Santa Barbara Getaway
Fisher and Paykel Washer and Dryer
Dinner for 2 at Ago
$500 in Smashbox Cosmetics
