This year, the Nature Museum is raffling off seven baskets brimming with local gifts and food items. Visit "The Second Nature Shop" next to the Arts & Crafts tent during the Fairy House Festival to see these overflowing prizes and buy raffle tickets for your chance to win one of these themed baskets. All proceeds directly benefit the museum's mission to connect people to nature. Raffle tickets will be sold on Saturday and Sunday throughout the Festival.
Raffle ticket prices are 1 for $2, 3 for $5, and 7 for $10. Raffle winners do not need to be present at the drawing to win, but will need to make their own arrangements to return and pick up their winning basket at The Nature Museum. Drawings for raffle winners will be held on Sunday, September 24th at 4:15 p.m at the Fairy Shoppe.
