This fall, the Perugia Committee is hosting a Grand Rapids “Taste of Italy” Raffle and Dinner. Buy a raffle ticket (or several!) for your chance to win one of 5 tasty prize packages, each with a selection of various gift certificates to local Italian restaurants. The top prize is worth $500. Raffle tickets are $25 each, 3 for $50, or 8 for $100.
Proceeds from the fundraiser support committee programs like Italian language learning scholarships for students, pen pal exchanges between elementary students, hosting Perugian artists for ArtPrize, delegation visits from foreign sister cities representatives, and hosting local cultural events.
In addition to raffle tickets, you can also purchase dinner tickets for an evening at Amore Trattoria on October 16 as we celebrate Italian American Heritage Month. We’ll have additional silent auction items to raffle and will announce the winners of our “Taste of Italy” raffle. Dinner tickets are $35 each and seating is limited.
Purchase your raffle and dinner tickets online or from a member of the Perugia Committee until October 16, 2017. If you purchase tickets online, your raffle stubs and/or dinner tickets will be mailed to you. You do not have to have a PayPal account to purchase any of our tickets online, you can simply complete a onetime payment by clicking on the gray “Pay with a debit or credit card” on the PayPal screen.
Thank you to all of the local businesses who are supporting the “Taste of Italy” Raffle by donating gift certificates for our prize packages.
