‘Stimulus Raffle’ planned at annual auction
Chesapeake Academy’s annual silent and live dinner auction on Saturday, May 2, on the school’s Irvington campus will feature a “Stimulus Package Raffle.”
Mirroring the federal government’s attempt to put funds back into the economy, Chesapeake Academy’s Northern Neck Stimulus Package Raffle will feature gift certificates and services from local businesses, according to Julie Zimmerman.
With a total value of $1,500 and a theme of “food, fuel, and frolic,” the raffle’s grand prize includes a $500 Tri-Star Supermarket gift certificate, $500 B.P. gasoline gift certificate, and a variety of gift cards and tickets to enrich the pallet and soul at area restaurants and cultural events.
Northern Neck Stimulus Package tickets are $10 each. Anyone purchasing 10 tickets gets an additional ticket free. Tickets can be purchased at Specials in Kilmarnock, the Sandpiper Restaurant in White Stone, Khakis in Irvington, River Birch Nursery in Locust Hill, or by calling the school at 438-5575.
The academy thanks those generous merchants for donating certificates for goods and services to the raffle.
The winning raffle ticket will be drawn at the annual auction on May 2 during the Celebrating S.T.A.R.S. (“Students, Teachers and Alumni Reaching Success”) Auction. Winners need not be present to win.
Proceeds from the auctions, raffle and related activities, benefit academic programming and financial scholarships.
To donate a service, or an item to the auction, contact Catherine Emry at 438-5575 by March 31.
