We Invite you to Donate Items to our Raffle Baskets

Raffle

Our Raffle Coordinator solicits and collects donations from panelist, publishers, FL-MWA chapter members, local merchants, and others. Donations in the past have included signed books, paintings, gift certificates, edible treats, drinkable treats, and even a vacation package. The raffle baskets will be on display in the bookstore throughout the conference. All proceeds of the raffle & auction are used by the Florida chapter of the MWA to host and sponsor writing and literacy programs throughout Florida.
Some examples:
The “All Write” Literary events hosted by Florida MWA, Florida Library Association Annual Conference, Word of the South Literary Festival, Southwest Florida Reading Festival, and the South Florida Book Festival.
How do I donate items for the raffle?
Thank you! Donating to the raffle is a great way to gain additional exposure. We welcome all types of donations – you are limited only by your imagination. If you have an item or items to donate, there is a box to check during registration. Our Raffle Coordinator will contact you – OR – you may contact her at benvenutoml@aol.com. We will provide the baskets.
NOTE: All donations must be received (or confirmed) by January 31, 2019
We will try to fit in donations received after that date, but there is no guarantee.
How to win raffle items?
Raffle tickets are sold during the conference by our Boa Ladies and Gentlemen. Look for the PINK feather boas. Prices are 10 tickets for $10 or 25 tickets for $20. Slotted boxes are placed with each raffle basket which will be displayed in the bookstore. Match the prize basket number to the slotted box number and stuff your ticket stub(s) in the box. You can put your tickets all in one box or spread them amongst the 20+ prize baskets. Tickets are available from Thursday noon until 5 PM on Saturday. Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted.
When is the drawing and must I be present to win?
The drawing will be held before the Saturday evening cocktail party. It is not necessary for you to be there, but your tickets must be. Winning tickets are verified at the time of the drawing and the items presented. We cannot mail winning baskets. Many people who cannot attend on Saturday evening leave their tickets with a trusted friend.

Please Donate Items to our Author Auction held at the Friday Night Banquet
Our Author Auction is a live auction conducted by auctioneer Gregg Kocenko of Auction Nirvana. Items are usually from our Guests of Honor, Agents & Editors, and publishers. They can be 10-20 page critiques, character namings, marketing services, private one-on-one meetings with the Keynote or other guests. A list of what will be auctioned off will be on each banquet table the night of the event so you will be able to decide in advance what you want to bid on. It is a lot of fun. All items must be paid for immediately after the auction, by cash, check, or credit card. All proceeds of the raffle & auction are used by the Florida chapter of the MWA to host and sponsor writing and literacy programs throughout Florida.
Some examples:
The “All Write” Literary events hosted by Florida MWA, Florida Library Association Annual Conference, Word of the South Literary Festival, Southwest Florida Reading Festival, and the South Florida Book Festival.
