This past spring at Lights of Hope we tried something new. Guests had the opportunity to buy a “Golden Ticket” for $100. If they were the lucky winner they could pick any item out of our live auction line up. Anything… and we had some pretty sweet things like a trip to Italy, poker party, trip to Thailand, just to name a few.
Prior to the drawing of the ticket, Lights of Hope auction chairs Kim and Lauren visited each table to thank them for attending the event. They also asked “what will you pick if you win the golden ticket?” They were as excited as anyone as the buzz in the room over the golden ticket was huge. Time after time guests were answering the “Taco Truck party for 40 guests.”
Well it finally came time to draw the lucky winner. As you can tell he’s a happy winner
This weekend here in Portland, Paul and Stacey celebrated their Golden Ticket win with 50 friends as they dined on Taco’s from the Taco King’s food truck.
This new golden ticket idea for EOR was a huge success. We were able to sell 99 tickets and that $9,900 is providing nutritional meals for the girls at Children’s Heaven, medicine for children at Lola, building supplies for land at Lola and so much more.
Thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket, to the Massari family for underwriting the Taco Truck and to Paul and Stacey for supporting EOR.
Join us May 21, 2016 in Portland, Oregon for the 8th annual Lights of Hope Auction. You just might win yourself a golden ticket!
