With all 644 pieces now hung in the gallery and up on Flickr, ticket-holders to the Patrons’ Show are picking out their favorites — and back-up choices — for when their number is called at Sunday’s drawing. But what if there was a way to increase your chances of getting your very top pick?
A First Choice raffle ticket — $15 for one, $25 for two — gives you a chance at having your favorite piece with no anxious waiting involved. Just visit the gallery to get a ticket, or tickets, and designate the piece you want. The First Choice raffle winner is drawn before the official Patrons’ Show drawing starts. If your ticket is the lucky one, you get to go home with your top choice!
The $250 Geri Gordon Award, established by one of our longtime Patrons, goes to the artist whose work is selected by the First Choice raffle winner. You don’t need to have a Patrons’ Show ticket to enter, nor do you need to be present to claim your artwork.
This is a great way to get in on the Patrons’ Show fun and support The Art League if buying a Patrons’ Show ticket wasn’t in your budget. So get down to the gallery and pick your First Choice!
