2015 Raffle- Win a Trip to Maui! Update: We Have A Winner!
The winning ticket was sold by our own General Manager & Director of Touring Charlie Moore and the trip was won by JANET VIRNIG of Minneapolis, a longtime friend of the theatre and a VERY faithful buyer of Mixed Blood raffle tickets. We're delighted to congratulate Janet on her well-deserved win and on her upcoming vacation to Maui!We hope your disappointment will be eased by the knowledge that those of you who purchased raffle tickets were a vital part in raising just about $18,000 for Mixed Blood, money that is used to support all facets of the programming we do. The theater would be diminished without it and it would not be possible without your participation.Thank you again for buying into the raffle! We'll do it again next year!
