PDSF Raffle Baskets
AAEA is looking for your help!
Please think of AAEA and when you register for the conference, please check the box stating you will bring an item for the PDSF raffle.
What is the PDSF Raffle and Steps I Can Take?
Each year at the conference, we host an amazing raffle of goodies. These include new and gently used items donated by members, but can also be items donated by art retailers and manufacturers. Anyone can win! Proceeds go directly toward a scholarship for a member to attend next year’s conference. Here’s how it works …
Step 1: You can start collecting new and gently used items for the raffle, such as a basket of cleaning supplies, a collection of yarn, a set of watercolor markers, and much more.
Step 2: Bring that basket or other container of themed materials to the conference. Please label it with a tag and a description of what is included. If you don’t have time to make it pretty, we can do that for you when you arrive.
Step 3: Be sure to bring cash for raffle tickets! Look for members wearing special aprons to purchase. Tickets will be $3 for 5 tickets or $5 for 10 tickets. You DO need to be present to win. Half of the baskets will be awarded at Saturday night’s awards dinner, the other half will be awarded on Sunday at lunch. So you should plan on attending all weekend.
Step 4: You’ll be able to take the baskets with you as soon as you win, so leave room in your car!
If you will be unable to attend the conference but would like to donate a basket OR if you have contacts who might be willing to donate, please contact the PDSF raffle chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Artist Market will give you the opportunity to showcase, share, and sell your art during the upcoming conference.
The Artist Market will set-up and sell during all meals - Friday & Saturday, breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Each artist will have 1 table. You will need to cover your wares when you are “closed” to secure your valuables. The cost will be $50 per artist.
