Prize-palooza for the Raffle

Posted: February 19, 2019

Dream vacations, cash prizes and super surprises all await in this year’s Jubilee Raffle, which promises to be a prize-palooza, according to Jubilee Raffle Chair Jim Kellogg.

If you’ve been dreaming of a fantastic getaway to a beach resort, exotic cruise or bucket-list destination, now could be the time to book it, if you’re the lucky winner.

The top prize is a $15,000 dream vacation, courtesy of Wasserman Travel. The prize has been donated by Jim, in memory of his wife, Wendy Wasserman-Kellogg, NorthBay Healthcare Foundation board member who lost her battle with cancer last September.

Don’t want to take time off? Then take $15,000 in cash, the other option offered to the grand prize winner.

Also new this year is a tribute prize: a private tour of Pixar Animation Studios, in memory of Adam Burke, former Foundation board member who also lost his battle with cancer in 2018.

And, there’s more to be won in this year’s raffle, as organizers plan to add even more prizes, but all that will be announced at a later date, Jim noted.  

As in years’ past, the Jubilee raffle offers cash prizes totaling $10,000, with 12 winners of $125, 10 winners of $500, one winner of $1,000 and one $2,500 winner. And, since only 2,500 tickets will be sold, the odds of winning something are about 1 in 100.  

Raffle tickets are $35 each or three for $100, and can be purchased by calling (707) 646-3133, purchased with a credit card by fax at (707) 646-3135, or in person at the NorthBay Healthcare Foundation office, 4500 Business Center Drive in Fairfield; at Jackson Medical Supply, 506 Main Street in Vacaville; or at Wasserman Travel, 366 Merchant St. in Vacaville.

The winning tickets will be drawn at the 32nd annual Jubilee, set for May 18, 2019, at the Harbison Event Center at the Nut Tree in Vacaville. Ticketholders need not be present to win, but those who do attend will experience Solano County’s finest opportunity to mingle and socialize while enjoying an evening of wine, brews, food and great music, all while benefitting a great cause — the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement.

Presenting Sponsors are Al and Patt Shaw, Dr. Lee and Valerie Freeman, Heidi Y. Campini, Dennis and Alex Landis, Before The Movie, Western Health Advantage, DPR Construction and Paradise Valley Estates.

The 32nd Jubilee has a wine country casual theme, and the event gets underway at 6:30 p.m. Tickets, for those ages 21 and up, are $75 each (plus a small service charge) through Feb. 23, and must be purchased in advance by going to www.NorthBayC2C.org.Tickets will be $100 after Feb. 23 and $125 on the day of the event, if still available.
