|And so the big announcement – beginning today, every $5.00 you donate to the Pistols + Popcorn Livestrong Challenge page will generate a virtual raffle tickets to All Points West. To find out why I’m participating in the Livestrong Challenge click here. To find out what other prizes will be on the block click here. This prize is the one that tempted me to forego all my good intentions, keep the booty and then just dodge the philanthropist that donated them to the cause. But no can’t do it but YES I thought about it and there I said it. I’ve gone back and forth on should I divide this prize up so there are more winners or should someone just hit the jackpot Super Glam Style? I’m all all about Super Glam Style obviously, so I’m keeping this prize as one giant win for whomever is the lucky devil that is chosen. And also – can I tell you something? I’m not Dooce or The Pioneer Woman or The Fat Cyclist over here. I’ve got an awesome readership (some including me (but not including my mother) would say a larger readership than I deserve) but your chances of winning a prize in this thing are very very very good. I don’t know the odds but they’re better than most raffles because I have a lot of (Super Glam Style) prizes, but let’s face it, I have a limited amount of readers who may donate. So – you want this? Come and get it citizen!|
What’s the Prize??
All Points West features “More than 65 artists appearing on the three stages throughout the 80-acre historic location that has panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the Manhattan skyline.” Pistols + Popcorn has two tickets for each day for one lucky so and so, plus their “plus one”.
Also the tempter philanthropist mastermind behind this prize decided to throw in transportation costs as well – so you also get two roundtrip tickets on the ferry to get there and back, for each day. Wanna know what it’s worth? Are you like that? Are you that person that looks their gifts up on the Internet to find out their value? I’ll save you the work. This prize has a value of $624. Add the satisfaction of fighting cancer while enjoying the show, and it’s worth a million dollars (USD), at least.

You have at least until Wednesday June 10 to enter the drawing for the All Points West tickets. All raffles will re-open for a few hours at the party on the 30th. But if you don’t want to miss this chance – I’d suggest doing it today. Or tomorrow. Most def by Wednesday, m’kaaaay?
|But Wait There’s More!
One more cool add to the collection of prizes – Neighborhood legends Big Movies for Little Kids have joined in the fight! They will be donating Two Season Passes for Fall 2009 (a more than a $100 value). Read about what they do here, and join us on June 30th for your chance to score your passes. Also – do yourself a favor and get to their shows – they select the coolest films for kids (and their owners) to see. It’s a favorite haunt for Roan and me.
