WithIt, the women’s leadership development network for the home and furnishings industries, will be offering their annual “Get WithIt to WinIt” raffle again this year with prizes being awarded each day of November, and a bonus prize on December 1.
Building on the success of the 2019 and 2020 fundraiser, this year’s ticket holders will be eligible to win one of two grand prizes. The month of prizes kicks-off with the first grand prize, a Hybrid Sealy Queen Mattress Set from returning sponsor Tempur-Sealy. Capping the event, the second grand prize of a Beautyrest Harmony Lux Queen Mattress Set, generously donated by Serta Simmons Bedding, will be award on December 1st via a drawing of all sold tickets.
Only 999 tickets will be sold and each day’s winner will be pegged to the North Carolina daily Pick Three lottery numbers. If a day’s Pick Three numbers do not match any of the sold tickets, the prize will be held over for a live-streamed drawing on December 1st. Each day’s prize will be a gift card valued between $100 -$500 at desirable stores websites like Amazon, Anthropologie, Athleta, Best Buy, Brooklinen, Charleston Shoe Company, Coach, Crate & Barrel, Kate Spade, Kendra Scott, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Lululemon, Monos Luggage, Omaha Steak, Sephora, Shinola New York, Spa Finder, Target, Tory Burch, Ulta, Williams Sonoma, and Zappos. Cash cards from Visa and American Express are among the prizes as well.
Tickets cost only $20 each, or three for $50 and can be purchased from the WithIt website (https://bit.ly/3ngroMC) or from individual WithIt board members.
“This event exceeded all of our expectations the last two years,” said Amy VanDorp, Executive Director of WithIt. “It has helped WithIt remain fiscally solid during the pandemic. This puts us in a great position as we look forward to 2022, when we hope to do even more to promote professional development, education, and mentoring for women in the industry.”
“It has been tremendous fun to run this fundraiser each November,” said Renee Loper Boyd, WithIt Board VP. “Everyone enjoys a chance to win a great prize and 100% of ticket sales go to WithIt thanks to our generous sponsors.”
