Introducing Our Harvest at the Commons 2017 Raffle Items

Raffle items include ski lift passes or golf, and an energy tour with Crystal Mountain Resort CEO Jim MacInnes.


This year, we’re including a good old fashioned Raffle as part of our Harvest at the Commons celebration, Saturday at the Grand Traverse Commons. Instead of going to the highest bidder, everyone’s got a chance to win these awesome prizes. All of the prizes have been donated by our generous friends, neighbors, and business supporters. We’ve focused on curating fun and exciting experiences that you’re sure to enjoy!

Yellow (tier 1) tickets cost $20 apiece, or 6 tickets for $100; Red (tier 2) tickets cost $10 apiece, or 12 tickets for $100. Visit the raffle ticket sales table or find a roaming salesperson to purchase your raffle tickets. When you drop your tickets in the jar of the prize you’d like to win, make sure the color of your ticket corresponds to the color of the jar.

Door prices include two giant gift boxes from Cherry Republic.
