Best Foodie Raffle Ever: Win Dinner for a Year
In terms of risk-to-reward ratio, the Virginia Avenue Project's annual raffle is tops. A $5 ticket enters you in a drawing to win 52 restaurant gift certificates. Yes, 52. That's one gift certificate for each week of the year. And they're good: Picca, Craft, Katsuya, Border Grill, Osteria La Buca, Delphine, Wurstkuche, Santa Monica Seafood and more. No wonder Jonathan Gold said it "might be the best foodie raffle in the history of, well, foodie raffles."
The "Dinner for a Year" drawing occurs on October 26th at the organization's annual Inspiration Gala at Casa del Mar in Santa Monica. Click here to buy tickets; $5 each or $20 for five tickets.
The Virginia Avenue Project is a free, after-school program that uses the performing arts to mentor children, ages 6-18.
