Time is running out folks! If you haven’t entered our raffle, please do now!

And for those of you who have already entered, thank you for supporting the Island Health and Wellness Center on St. John!

The response to this raffle has been overwhelming. We have raised a good deal of money that will be used wisely for health care services here on St. John. To those of you who have entered, thank you. And to those of you who are unable to but simple love this little island of ours, I thank you too.

Here is what you can win for just $25…

  • A five night stay at Ardisia (the stay is good for up to six guests)
  • Roundtrip airfare for six people on JetBlue
  • Best of the BVI boat charter with Palm Tree Charters
  • Four beautiful St. John bracelets courtesy of Coral Bay Jewelers.
  • A pretty swanky gift basket upon their arrival which will include items from several local businesses.

Again, tickets are just $25. The raffle will benefit the Island Health and Wellness Center here on St. John in the US Virgin Islands.

The raffle continues through this Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 9 a.m. EST. We will announce the winner on or about June 20, 2018.

The raffle period ended on June 16, 2018 at 9 a.m. EST

All entrants will receive a confirmation email from PayPal after purchasing your ticket. Because of the expected high volume of entries, we cannot personally email each entrant. Your email from PayPal will serve as your confirmation of entry into the drawing.

How the drawing works: Once the entry period is over, we will pull a report from PayPal. We will then personally write the names of each entrant on a raffle ticket. If you bought one ticket, we will write your name on one ticket. If you bought two tickets, we will write your name on two tickets. And so forth… All of the names will be placed into a secure bucket/basket. Once all of the names are written on tickets, we will draw the winner live on video. That video will be posted on newsofstjohn.com

Now on to the fine print, the small print, the possible storm print, etc…

  • The five-night stay at Ardisia is good for low season dates only.

    my wife and I bought 9 tickets and used the credit card pmt. option as we closed our paypal account. After I did that I saw where the list for tickets will be based on the paypal register so will my entries show up?
