Community Assists Catamount Arts

car raffleST. JOHNSBURY- Now through December, anyone above the age of 18 can enter in a raffle for a new Subaru to help support the efforts of Catamount Arts.

Catamount Arts and St. Johnsbury Subaru are selling tickets for a chance to win a brand new 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek estimated at almost $25,000. This is the seventh year that they have put on the "All Wheel for the Arts" raffle, and profits go right back to Catamount to help with their budget.

“Money goes completely to the operations, so we can pay the oil bill, we can have staff salaries, so we can keep the doors open," says Amy Stetson, Catamount Arts' Director of Development.  Tickets for the raffle can be purchased at Catamount Arts at three tickets for $100 or one ticket for $50 and will be available until the drawing on December 28th. Their goal is to sell 2,000 tickets this year.

Samantha Dube, Marketing Director at St. Johnsbury Subaru says that taking part in this raffle helps not just Catamount Arts, but the community as well. “It just makes our community that much richer.”

According to the Executive Director for Catamount Arts, Jody Fried, “Catamount is very fortunate to have widespread support throughout the community. This support is a reflection of the value that members of the community place on the arts, as well as cultural institutions in St. Johnsbury. These organizations have a positive impact on both the regional economy and quality of life.”

In addition to the grand prize, the raffle offers other prizes for the second and third place winners. The prize for second place is a season pass to Q-Burke and the third place winner will receive a Yakima Skybox.
