Unchain My Art
Help! I'm chained to my art and the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi is demanding a ransom to let me go free!
Watch my goofy video and enter the raffle, by donating at Crowdrise by May 19th.
Raffle 1: For every $10 tax-deductible donation you make, you will be entered to win the pictured hand-painted Mississippi wild turkey feather framed in Yazoo City cedar (valued at $85). Donate by May 19th.
Raffle 2: Donate by 5:00PM on May 5th for an additional chance to win two tickets to Pepsi Pops (value $40), which have been donated by the Mississippi Symphony because I bassoon for them and they need me back for the performance on May 8th. The winner of this first drawing will be announced the evening of May 5th. Winner will still be entered in the May 19th drawing. Win both!
Gifts: In addition to getting the chance to win the framed feather and the Pepsi Pops tickets, Elaine and the Guild are offering gifts to everyone who donates the following values:
- $50 or more: A hand-painted feather ornament of your choice (valued at $15). A Friend of the Guild window decal.
- $100 or more: A $10 gift certificate for Elaine's booth at the Chimneyville Craft Festival. Plus the ornament and window decal listed above. Plus membership as a Friend of the Guild, which qualifies you for 10% off classes, camp and purchases at the Craft Center gallery.
- $250 or more: A $30 gift certificate for Elaine's booth at the Chimneyville Craft Festival. Plus the ornament and window decal listed above. Plus membership as a Friend of the Guild Art Lover, which qualifies you for 10% off classes, camp and purchases at the Craft Center gallery, and one complimentary (1) ticket to the Chimneyville Preview Party.
- $500 or more: All of the above. Plus membership as a Remarkable Supporter that includes a $75 credit towards Guild classes, two (2) Chimneyville Preview Party tickets, and an etched tile with your name in the lobby of the MS Craft Center for a year.
Come to the Party! The drawing for the framed feather and all the "chained" items from other craftsmen will be held Tuesday, May 19th at our Free Friends Fest at the Mississippi Craft Center in Ridgeland. You don't have to be present to win, but we hope you won't miss the presentation of the "Chain Gang" and the chance to get better acquainted with the Guild. If you win the raffle but can't be there Elaine will hand-deliver your feather or tickets if you live in driving distance, or mail you the package if you're far far away.
