ESSA Raffle

Tickets £1 each, £10 for a book of 10
Draw Date 29th February 2012

The President and Council are pleased to announce that during the Annual Exhibition in 2012, the three Societies (SSA, VAS and RSW) will be holding a combined raffle which will be drawn at the end of the Exhibition. Proceeds from the raffle will be divided between ESSA (50%) and the three societies (50%), with ESSA’s share being used to contribute directly towards the costs of hiring the RSA galleries for the annual exhibitions. On top of the rental costs of the gallery, the cost to the Societies of staging the annual exhibition continues to increase. All proceeds from the raffle will go towards ensuring we can continue to exhibit in the RSA galleries. Raffle tickets cost £1 each and come in books of 10.
