Guest crafters, along with the Church crafters, donate items to be put into a craft raffle. Buy one ticket for $1.00 or 6 tickets for $5.00. Write your name and contact number (like your cell phone number) on each ticket and place your tickets in only the boxes of the items you want. The odds are good. The winner does not need to be present at the time of the raffle. With the name and phone number written on the ticket, the CWF will contact the winners by phone so that arrangements can be made for picking up the item that was won. No limit on number of items won. The items shown above are from previous years' raffles, so are not available this year, but we expect similar items.

The 50/50 Raffle
There is also a second raffle called "The 50/50 Raffle". Tickets are sold separately from the above raffle. (The 50-50 raffle is sold by the Church rather than by the CWF, which organizes the Craft Fair), but raffle tickets are the same price: $1 for one ticket, $5 for 6 tickets. Tickets are placed into a jar and, at the end of the Craft Fair, mixed around. One ticket is randomly selected as sole winner. For this raffle, the winner receives 50% of the total sales of the 50/50 raffle tickets, and the Church receives the other 50%. The total raised is different each year, and has ranged from $60 to $250, depending on the number of tickets sold. The winner does not need to be present to win, because they have already written their name and contact information on each of their tickets before placing them in the jar.
