TICKET RAFFLE: 7 Deadly Gins Bar + Theme Camp Fundraiser

Postby 7deadlygins » Sun May 05, 2013 4:29 pm

Hello lovely Burners,

In 2012, our 7 Deadly Gins Bar at 8.30 + Alyssum provided the most delicious and refreshing Gin & Tonics on playa! Maybe you came by for a visit, got yourself a cold beverage and swayed to the sweet tunes of our top-notch DJs? Even if you didn't - we need your help!

We are doing a fundraiser this year to obtain some much-needed infrastructure. We have one spare ticket to the 2013 Burning Man event to give away, and it could be YOURS for a mere $25 donation to our fabulous camp. Here is how it works:

WHAT - We have ONE Burning Man ticket to give away to ONE lucky Burner in our 7 DEADLY GINS ‘Let the Games Be GIN’ fundraiser.

WHY - What is the purpose of this fundraiser? Putting together Black Rock City’s best bar and serving thousands of ice-cold, refreshing G&Ts takes time, effort, passion, lots of love, dedication, planning, drive and of course cold, hard cash. And to make our camp so kick-ass, we need a storage vehicle to schlepp our gear to playa and keep it safe and dry year-round.

Your donation will help us purchase that vehicle – so we may return to the playa and build the most rockin’ bar for many, many years to come…

WHEN – The fundraiser will run from May 5th – June 5th. The winning name/email will be randomly drawn on June 6th, 2013 and the winner will be announced via this website and our Facebook page on June 7th, 2013, and also notified via the donation email. The winner has 14 days to respond and claim their prize. If we don’t hear anything, a second drawing will be held to determine an alternate winner.

HOW – With your Paypal donation of USD $25, you will automatically be entered into the drawing for one Burning Man ticket (Note: The face value of this ticket is $380. This is a US paper ticket – NOT a will call ticket. It will be sent out to you via secure, trackable mail as soon as paper tickets are released in June. You will have to provide a residential address and sign for the package – NO P.O Boxes allowed).

We are only allowing 300 entries in order to keep your odds top-notch. The Paypal link will get shut down either as soon as we’ve received those 300 entries or on June 5th – whichever comes first. You can increase your odds by donating $45 for two entries, $70 for three entries, or $90 for four entries.

For more information, and to make a donation and enter the drawing, go here: http://7deadlygins.com/

Thanks for your support, beautiful people! Eternal gratitude, good karma and ice-cold G&T's will be yours!

Thanks, Lemur!

We are hoping to get some traction and make it possible to create a lasting investment into the camp and the event as a whole by buying permanent storage with the proceeds from the fundraiser. In the very least, some lucky soul will get a golden ticket for $25. :)

Tell your friends!

Cheers,
- Empress (7 Deadly Gins Camp Organizer)

good luck with your fundraiser! It sounds like a great bar!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I like it! Sadly, I cannot stand gin. Errant days as a sailor, gin just isn't pleasant the second time around.
These are not my fuckos.

Nothing you drink is pleasant the second time around AntiM!

Especially if it may not have been yours in the first place - label very clearly!

Amen to that, TurtleBurp. :)

Update to our fundraiser:

We'll be using RandomPicker.com to conduct our drawing for the Burning Man ticket on June 6th.

RandomPicker generates a final protocol for each drawing - an online overview that will publish and declare the correctness of the draw. Donators can also check if they were included into the list. Neat, huh?

So why wait?? Go make your donation today for a chance to WIN A BURNING MAN TICKET!!!
