As part of our Fall 2012 Fundraising Blitz, The Charlottesville Institute is raffling off a ticket to the Dalai Lama's speaking engagement at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion on Oct. 11 at 12:30pm. (For more info. about the event, please click here.) It is an Upper Orchestra ticket, center section, with a retail value of $75.00.
For every $10.00 you donate to The Charlottesville Institute between September 20-26, your name will be entered once in the raffle drawing, to be held on Sept. 27. So, if you donate $50.00, you have 5 chances to win, $100.00 gets you 10 chances, and so on. There will be a maximum of 400 "tickets" sold for this raffle and they are all available on a first-come, first-served basis -- so act now!
To make a donation to the Institute,
either send a check to: The Charlottesville Institute, 632 Stonehenge Ave., Charlottesville, VA 22902; or, donate on-line via Virginia Organizing with a credit card, debit card or PayPal account at http://tinyurl.com/cvilleinstitute -- be sure to designate "Charlottesville Institute" where prompted on the third page. [9/24/12 update: since your check won't arrive by 9/27, best to donate on-line at this point.]
All proceeds from this raffle will benefit the Institute's efforts to improve our community by inviting and encouraging greater involvement by students and faculty in local public policy and civic engagement projects.
Thanks for supporting the work of The Charlottesville Institute...and good luck!
