It's that time of year again! 2020 might have thrown a lot at us so far, but here at AAHS we're known for innovating, bobbing, and weaving to make things work. Rather than canceling our yearly raffle for 52 local restaurants, we realized it was an incredible opportunity to not only provide for families experiencing homelessness but also support our generous local restaurants during these tough times.
So, how does this work? Rather than asking restaurants to donate gift cards we want to pool together support for them! That's where you come in! We are asking community members to purchase gift cards to restaurants who've so generously donated to us in the past and then donate those gift cards to us.
And as those gift cards come in, that's where it starts to look like the Culinary Catchall we all know and love! We let you know which restaurants are included in our basket and you get to purchase a raffle ticket to hopefully win the grand (and it truly is grand) prize of 52 gift cards to local restaurants! That's a whole basket of local goodness.
Will you join us? See below to choose a restaurant to purchase a giftcard from. These restaurants have donated at least $20-$25 each year for our basket so we hope you'll match/surpass that. Once you've bought the gift card, let us know if you can drop off the giftcard or need us to pick it up from the restaurant when you sign up.
And that's not all! If you purchase a gift card, you'll also get TWO raffle tickets entered to win the whole stash! Now that's a win-win-win don't ya think?
Thank you for investing in our local community! 2020 can't get us down, we are #AthensStrong!
