Ten Works of Art Being Raffled Off!
ARTember may be over but there is one activity that is still going on- the raffle of the ten skateboard deks turned into original works of art by area tattoo artists.
“The boards are incredible, “ says Robyn Cooper who coordinated the artists. “People who are buying them are hoping to win and display it on a wall. The boards would also make the coolest Christmas gift for Airdrie’s skateboard enthusiasts so many parents are buying tickets hoping their Christmas shopping is done!”
Proceeds from the raffle are invested into youth oriented art projects in the community such as the ARTember Street Art Gallery. Tickets are 3 for $20 or $10 each. With only a 1000 tickets printed that’s a 1 in 100 chance to win.
The boards will be awarded to the ten winners in order of the draw and the first name gets first choice, second name second choice etc.
Tickets can be purchased at Pharmasave, Sully’s Board Sports, The Hair Lounge and Killarneys. Draw date is November 30.
