The raffle is a CHS tradition that occurs at the start of each monthly Program Meeting. Proceeds are added to the CHS Scholarship Fund which helps to educate the next generation of horticultural professionals. Moving forward, we will try a new approach to the raffle. Rather than announcing the winning numbers, they will instead be posted on the screen onstage. When you see your number on the screen, turn in your winning ticket and choose your item. First come, first choice!
We’ll follow the schedule below and raffle tickets will sell for $1 per ticket.
6:45-7:00 p.m. Plants arrive
6:45-7:15 p.m. Ticket sales
7:15-7:30 p.m. Winning numbers posted and plants claimed
7:30 p.m. Raffle ends
Since fewer plants are donated for November, January, February and March Program Meetings, no raffle will take place during these months. Instead, a ‘Market’ will be held at the start of those meetings where attendees may make an appropriate donation of at least $1 for any item being offered. As always, all money collected in either manner is designated for the CHS Scholarship Fund.
A reminder to our generous donors, please include as much information as possible with your plant donation (flower color, culture, mature size, etc.) and donor’s name/number is optional. We also appreciate donations of houseplants and garden-related items – books, magazines, cards, prints, pottery, tools, etc. – that will interest your fellow gardeners. Thanks!
