Tickets Available Now for Boots & Bowties

Get ready to pull on your boots, strap on your bow ties and join us for an exciting evening full of food, fun and music! The Boots & Bowties Reverse Raffle is a benefit for the Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber of Commerce. Mark your calendars now, because the fun starts at 7 p.m. on October 21, 2016.  The Grand Prize winner will take home $5,000!  Thanks to our sponsor, Volume Chevrolet Buick, this year’s event features Casino Games!

How it works: A reverse raffle is simply that – a raffle in reverse! Instead of the first drawn ticket being the winner, all tickets will be pulled until one remains. The final ticket will be the winner of $5,000. There will be other fantastic and fun prizes given away throughout the night.

What will the evening include:  This fabulous fundraiser features your favorite casino games: blackjack, poker, roulette and craps. We’ll have DJ Matt Pippin rockin’ the tunes, as well as delicious food and drinks. There will also be a cash bar available.

Where to get tickets: Tickets are on sale now. There will be only 150 tickets sold so get yours before they sell out! You can purchase them online at this link or in person at the Chamber (10 West Chambers Street, Forsyth). Your $100 ticket includes a catered dinner for two, one entry into the reverse raffle and $200 worth of Casino Cash. Additional Casino Cash can be purchased for those High Rollers of the group. Each ticket provides one entry into the grand prize raffle, which also makes you eligible to win the other spectacular prizes donated by our gracious Chamber Members.

Where’s this happening: Our venue for the evening will be the Monroe County Convention Center located at 475 Holiday Circle in Forsyth, Georgia.

Is there a limit to how many tickets you can buy: No, there’s no limit. Buy as many as you like, however, only 150 tickets will be sold so get them before they’re gone!

Other rules to know: This is an adult only event, 21+ please. You need not be present to win the grand prize of $5,000, however, you must be present to win the other raffle prizes. You may auction off your ticket if you’re in the final 10 tickets – details on those specific rules will be given at the event.

Dress Code: It’s not obligatory to wear actual boots or a bow tie, but we’d love it if you did! Get in the spirit and support the cause by sporting your best boots and bow tie! 

What’s the Cause: The Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber serves its members and community with special events such as the historic Hometown Holidays Parade, the annual Forsythia Festival, Rising Star, Leadership Monroe, Business After Hours, Eggs & Issues, etc. To better serve the businesses and people of Monroe County, the Chamber fund-raises annually to support these efforts year after year. The Boots & Bowties Reverse Raffle is a benefit for the Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber of Commerce and will go towards its mission of promoting Commerce, Community, and Tourism.

Where to Donate a Raffle Prize: If you or your business are interested in donating a raffle prize valued at $25 or higher to the event, please contact the Program Coordinator, Kari Buckindail, at (478)994-9239 or at kari@forsyth-monroechamber.com. Raffle prizes will be promoted via social media.
