Kindred Arts holds Great Options drawing
Placeholder Image
Donate as little as $5 to the Manteca Kindred Arts and you could be the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind table runner made by nationally recognized by award-winning quilter Judy Mullen.
Or, how about a Mother Lode package that includes tickets for two for a performance at Stage 3 Theatre in Sonora, a stay at the National Hotel Bed and Breakfast in Jamestown plus a $75 dinner gift certificate, all together valued at $275?
Your lucky donation could even snag you two tickets to enjoy an evening at The Gallo Center in Modesto.
Those are just three of a dozen enticements being offered in this year’s Great Options Drawing fund-raiser to benefit the Manteca Kindred Arts. The nonprofit organization has been bringing classical concerts to Manteca for more than two decades. The venue for all performances is the St. Paul Methodist Church on the corner of East North Street and Powers Avenue. This is their only major fund-raiser throughout the year.
While it takes just one ticket or $5 to win any of the 12 prize packages offered, multiple tickets may be purchased for a chance to snag one of the prize selections. Buy 10 tickets and you even get a $5 discount – you pay only $45.
The drawing will be held during the reception following the scheduled March 28 Kindred Arts concert which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the Great Options may be purchased that evening at the concert. However, one need not be present to win.
To purchase tickets before the event, call 239-1730.
Each ticket simply asks the donor to write down the number of the Option package they want to win, plus their name, address and telephone number. Entries should be mailed to: Manteca Kindred Arts, 1545 Terracina Circle, Manteca, CA 95336. Mailed entries must be received by Friday, March 27.
