The April 2016 Not-A-Raffle-Raffle!

Posted by @dave on
Yay! Another raffle! We have some great prizes lined up, come in and check it out.

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 NGA 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:

Caladium Bulbs 4 Less is providing (25) Mixed Grade #1 size caladium bulbs. At Caladium Bulbs 4 Less, we are Your Caladium Bulb Super Store!! Our goal is to provide you with the Freshest, Top Quality Caladium Bulbs available! In addition to offering Caladiums we also offer several other Tropical Bulbs. We also have the Double Pearl Tuberose and 4 different types of Elephant Ears available.

Victory Seed Company is providing a $25 gift certificate to help get your garden growing. It's the perfect time for direct sowing your garden. 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.

Oakes Daylilies is providing a $50 gift certificate to their store. For the biggest daylilies you've ever received, try Oakes Daylilies. Choose from over 400 varieties in a rainbow of colors, shapes and size, freshly-dug, guaranteed to thrive in your garden. Daylily specialists for over 30 years.

Annie's Annuals & Perennials is providing a $50 gift certificate to their store.

Lastly, I will give 50 acorns each to the 3 remaining winners.

As always, the ticket buying window is open now and will close on Wednesday, April 27th at 7:00pm Central time. The drawing will be done and posted on the following 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!
