GLENS FALLS - Tickets are now on sale for The Hyde Collection's "Louis Hyde Whitney $10K Giveaway," one of the Museum's largest annual fundraisers.
Only 350 tickets for the raffle are to be sold at $100 each. The special reception and drawing will be held at The Hyde Collection Friday Dec. 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and purchase of a raffle ticket entitles the purchaser and a guest to attend the event. Ticket holders need not be present to win.
The grand prize is $10,000, and a second-place prize of $1,000 and two third-place prizes of $500 each are to be awarded, Hyde Director David Setford said.
"Louis Whitney was a strong advocate of The Hyde Collection and this annual event allows us to carry forward his legacy."
Scoville Jewelers, sponsor of the fundraiser, will hold a "Second Chance Giveaway" for all $10,000 ticket holders who do not win a prize at the event. Non-winning ticket stubs may be dropped off at Scoville's downtown Glens Falls location no later than Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1 pm, when a drawing will be held for a $500 Scoville gift certificate.
All proceeds will support exhibitions and educational programming at the Museum. Tickets may be purchased at The Hyde Museum Store, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls or by calling 792-1761, ext. 23.
