Remarkable Raffles!

A Raffle is held at the Saturday Gala (after dinner so that all attendees may participate) in support of CGW’s Costume College Scholarship Fund. Raffle tickets are sold at the Information Desk on Saturday and during the Gala. You must be present at the time your Raffle number is called to win.   

Have you ever glanced at the treasures nestled inside a raffle basket and thought, “Oh, I sure would love to win this.”  Have you ever heard the wistful voices in the browsing onlookers as they remarked, “Oh, that sewing machine.  That’s JUST what I need!” or “That fabric. It would be perfect for the robe a l’anglaise I’ve been dying to make!”

If you have, then these remarkable raffle baskets might be just for you, if you’re lucky enough to purchase some raffle tickets!

But before any tickets can be sold and winners announced, we need donations of treasures to fill those resplendent raffle baskets!

Do you have some wonderful silk fabric lying around that happens to be the wrong color for you?  Are you a jewelry artist who would like to spread the word about your brand by donating something wonderful to our raffle?  Do you have some china you no longer want that would tickle the fancy of a costumer who is also a collector?

We will happily accept donations like these as well as others!

Here are some possible themes to inspire your creativity in donations:

  • Beach Days
  • Suffrage Rally
  • Titanic
  • Gibson Girl
  • Downton Abbey
  • Victorian
  • Sewist’s Delight
  • Sci-Fi Fantasy
  • Anime
  • Royal Blue
  • Lovely Lavender
  • Radiant Red
  • Regency Rhapsody
  • Perfectly Plaid
  • Blooming Roses

……..and any other theme that inspires us!

Donations will be accepted in the Spring of 2022.
