Fourth Package Added to Our Raffle!!

Trunk Bay 2

It keeps getting better folks! We have added a fourth package to our News of St. John raffle!! Here are the details:

The new package (Package D) will be given to the fourth place winner. This package includes:

  • A half-day sail aboard Kalina, a 50-foot sailboat. The half-day sail is three hours and include a snorkel stop and beverages. This item is for up to six guests. Karina stays within the US Virgin Islands, so there is no BVI customs/immigration. The winner can choose to sail either in the morning or afternoon, any day of the week. (Click here to learn more about Kalina.)
  • A “Shirt of Art” painting workshop for six with Sloop Jones. (Click here to learn more about these great workshops.)
  • A wine flight tasting for two and a charcuterie board courtesy of Island Cork.

Ok, so here’s how the raffle is going to work. We will now pick four winners. All tickets will be entered into one drawing. The first ticket drawn will receive Package A. The second ticket drawn will receive Package B. The third ticket drawn will receive Package C. The fourth ticket drawn will receive Package D. The winner will be chosen on or about June 10th. Everyone who purchases a ticket will receive an email with the exact date and time of the drawing. (We have a lot of names to write folks, so please bear with us.)

Tickets are only $10 each. You can buy as many as you’d like. Proceeds will be given to the new Island Health and Wellness Center. (Click here to read the story we wrote about the Center last week and learn why it’s such a crucial part of St. John.)

The goal is to raise a ton of money for the new health and wellness center, so we are not limiting the number of tickets sold.

The raffle will end at 11:59 p.m. on June 7, 2017. Again, the winner will be announced on or about June 10, 2017.

    My daughter and I got our tickets, finally. The raffle ends on my birthday and we’ll be in St. John for her birthday. This would be a great birthday present for either of us.
