Choir Party – A raffle with a twist!

Contributed by Marian Fuchs

After the success of the “Love and Passion:  Collington Singers Spring Concert”, there was a delightful post-performance party on May 6.

Choir-master Marilyn Haskel had devised a raffle with a twist.  Every attendee was given two raffle tickets.   Helen Lauck picked the lucky winners, but the prizes were funny and clever wordplay on a fancy certificate rather than tangible things to enjoy.  Here are some of what the winners won:

  • You have been selected to join a private cruise aboard the African Queen through the Florida Everglades! Complimentary leeches.  Remember to pack insect repellent.
  • The holder of this certificate may claim a magnum of Verve Cliquot Champagne at the Ivy Lounge (when Yolanda isn’t looking) next to Collington’s premiere dining venue.
  • ou have just won a Russian Sable Jacket worth $20,000! You may pick up your prize in the Collington first floor OO Shop.
  • An all-expenses-paid two-week trip to the fabulous WEGMAN’S RESORT in Maine anytime between May 15–June 15, 2019 during the classic black fly season. Enjoy!
  • Gift Certificate For the man with time on his hands a Rolex Men’s Diamond Watch. Redeemable from any portable street vendor in New York City.   Tell ‘em Vinnie sent you.
  • You have won matching his-and-hers tattoos. Once in a lifetime prize! You must supply your own ink.

And here are Marilyn, Helen and some of the surprised and delighted winners.

One thought on “Choir Party – A raffle with a twist!

  1. Although we may recognize the winners’ faces, it may be significant that their names were not included in the post. This was probably done to protect them from potential scammers, who might try to con them out of their fabulous prizes.I believe that the winner of the Russian Sable Jacket might be particularly vulnerable because of our community tendency to misplace outer wear, a phenomonon well-documeted on the our listserv.
