BlytheCon Seattle is now seeking Raffle and Goodie Bag donations! We want to thank each and everyone in advance for donating and making this such a fun experience. There's nothing better than hearing the squeal of excitement from a raffle winner or seeing a delightful grin from a little Goodie Bag surprise!
The raffle event has become a special tradition at BlytheCon and is much anticipated by everyone! We would greatly appreciate your support for this fun and exciting event at BlytheCon. Our theme this year is the “Wizard of Oz” or "Journey to the Emerald City". However, donations do not need to follow the theme, but can instead reflect your own unique aesthetic. Each raffle item will be displayed with your information to help advertise your work and/or shop. You can also include business cards, postcards or discount codes for our Goodie Bags as well to help us further promote your shop. We would love to have photos of your donation so we can post it on our blog. Your shop will also be acknowledged on our website and in the event program.
There will be ONE raffle ticket in each Goodie Bag and NO additional tickets will be sold. Each attendee will get the same chance to win, just like at BlytheCon NY. It is against Washington State Law to hold a raffle, even if all profits go to a charity. We've written a LETTER TO THE BLYTHE COMMUNITY explaining our reason for the changes. This is not a bad change, although you can't buy extra tickets your chances of winning are great. There will be many prizes from many talented artists. We will be posting a list of donations soon.
Sadly without additional raffle ticket sales there will be no donations to the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation or Northwest Harvest, but we will have a collection jar available for those who wish to donate individually. With that said volunteers, vendors and special guests will still receive food and refreshments as well as comps.
GOODIE BAG CONTRIBUTIONS:
For gift bag contributions, we plan on hosting at least 350 people this year. Please do not feel like you need to contribute that many items. We would love to get any donations in increment of 50 up to 350. Any & all items help to make the gift bags special for the recipients. You can even donate postcards or shop promotions items. Some vendors give out special discount codes for their Etsy shop. Be as creative as you want with this donation! It's meant to be fun and give each attendee a little bit of glee with every bag.
We will be accepting Raffle and Goodie Bag donations up to July 28, 2014. If you are interested in making a contribution or have any questions, please contact Brian/SeattleBlythe, our donation coordinator. Brian can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much in advance for your consideration & support!
With great appreciation,
The Seattle BlytheCon Team
