It's Daylilies Week (again!) and we're opening our exciting week with an equally exciting raffle. Break out your acorn purse because you're definitely going to want to participate in this raffle. Brace yourself for this goliath of a raffle.
I love these ATP Raffles. Great companies who are friends of ATP get almost free exposure, members get a chance at great prizes, and we get to post a fun video with the Raffle Boy. I especially like the raffles like this one, where we have a lot of prizes because it means more people win!
As always, the ticket buying window is open now and will close on Monday at 6:00pm Central time. The drawing will be done and posted on Tuesday. The first place winner gets first pick of all the prizes, and then the second winner picks, and so forth until all prizes are claimed. Important note for winners: If you are contacted as a winner and asked to choose a prize you have 3 days to respond with your choice. If you do not respond within 3 days, the next placed winner will be contacted and allowed to pick.
Tickets cost 5 acorns each. Don't know what acorns are? Click here to learn about acorns, and how to get them. Good luck to all participants, and now let's talk about the prizes:
