First prize and second prize just isn’t the right way to describe this year’s top two prizes for CARTM’s annual Re-think Raffle as they both hold top billing appeal. Tickets are on sale now at CARTM for this year’s effort to support north county’s award-winning recycling facility. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20 and offer the opportunity to win one of three prizes.
Holder of the first ticket drawn will have their choice of the top two prizes: a Manzanita staycation ($600 value) or a private party for eight at VINO/Manzanita ($500 value). The staycation offers two nights at the pet friendly Studio/Lighthouse on the oceanfront in Manzanita. Along with two nights of lodging, the Staycation includes dinners for two at Terra Cotta and the Big Wave, breakfast or lunch at Bread and Ocean and a massage at Longevity. The private party for eight at VINO is offered during the month of January 2014 and includes dinner, wine, live music, gratuity and the private ambiance of this local wine bar for the eight lucky winners.
The third prize, valued at $250 is a “Recycling PhD.” This unique prize includes an in-home consultation by CARTM staff to design a recycling set-up to fit the space and lifestyle of the winner. New recycling bins, a home composter and a $50 gift certificate to The Refindery round out the prize.
The winning tickets will be drawn at this year’s 2nd annual CARTM Trashion Show/Upcycle Party on Saturday, October 12 at NCRD. To purchase raffle tickets visit CARTM during open hours: Thursday – Monday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., 34995 Necarney City Road in Manzanita. Or for more information call 503-368-7764 or www.cartm.org
Carol Newman of Brownsmead (also KMUN on-air personality) was the winner of the CARTM eco-cart. Carol who was unable to attend the Upcycle Party for the drawing was contacted by phone and was heard screaming with delight! Don’t be surprised when you visit the Brownsmead Corn Feed in September and see Carol arriving in the CARTM Cart.
Tom Mock won the full-share Re-evolution garden CSA. Tom and his wife Betty are avid community gardeners but will be able to relax a bit this year and enjoy the bounty of locally grown produce by Ginger Salkowski and her crew.
The CARTM logo home composter was won by Ray Hucke. Ray was delighted and couldn’t wait to get the composter installed and working.
