The July 2015 Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

Posted by @dave on
Another month, another raffle! We have 4 companies providing prizes this month, plus I'm throwing in some extra acorn prizes. Come on in and let's see what we've got.

Here we go again with another Not-a-Raffle Raffle. Why is this not a regular raffle? Well, in a regular raffle, you pay for the tickets with money. But in ATP raffles you buy your tickets with acorns. Tickets cost 5 acorns each. Don't know what acorns are? Click here to learn about acorns, and how to get them.

Important note: these prizes are all only available to members in the United States. I'm really sorry for those in other countries, but the complications and expense of shipping things to other countries is just too difficult and costly to arrange with the various companies. For this reason, we have made the decision to limit the contest to United States winners only. If you are outside the US, you can still participate, but if you win you will need to gift the prize to another member of your choice.

Good luck to all participants, and now let's talk about the prizes:

Perennial Obsessions is providing your choice of 5 plants from our catalog, with free shipping! We are a small mail order nursery offering a wide variety of named hardy succulents. Our specialty focuses on Sempervivum and sedum.

Victory Seed Company is providing a $25 gift certificate to their store. Sow seeds now for your Fall garden produce. For the North, short or cool season varieties thrive while in the South, more garden favorites can be sown for late or over-wintered harvests. The Victory Seed Company is a family owned and operated, small farm-based organization working to keep rare and threatened plant varieties available to home gardeners. All of their seeds are open-pollinated, open source, non-hybrid, and not chemically treated. As an early signer of the "Safe Seed Pledge" they will never knowingly sell GMO seeds. Many of the varieties are family heirlooms, most are old standard varieties that are hard to find.

Touch of Nature, Inc. is providing Gourmet Cooking Sets - One of our best selling items for entertaining outdoors with friends and family! All of us at Touch of Nature have a set and every time we have friends over to "Gourmet", they always want one when they leave. These also make PERFECT, unique gifts (we are shipping them all over the world) for your family and friends! Touch of Nature can be a big part of the solution for your garden and thus we are excited about the opportunity of helping you get the results you are looking for with a quality product at a very competitive price and an unconditional guarantee for performance. You can order all items in our online catalog on our secured server, or by calling (1)770-237-0993 or by faxing your desired items along with shipping and payment information to (1)413-473-9841. Any questions, email us at info@touchofnature.com

SRQHoyas is providing three hoya plants: Hoya sp. Komarindi River, Hoya obscura and Hoya limoniaca. SRQHoyas offers many species of hoya plants collected from around the world. Hoya plants are succulent tropical house or garden plants that bloom throughout the year and many times over. They are very easy to grow and require little care except warmth, humidity and a good drink of water once a week. There are so many different hoyas that it is impossible to explain what they look like. I ship small plants as well as cuttings to the United States and cuttings are available for International shipping.

Lastly, I will give 100 acorns each to the 3 remaining winners.

As always, the ticket buying window is open now and will close on Sunday, July 26th at 7:00pm Central time. The drawing will be done and posted the next day. 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 48 hours to respond with your choice. If you do not respond within that time, the next placed winner will be contacted and allowed to pick.

This raffle is now closed!
