It’s that time again - time to raise money from our readers and listeners to help keep Moore & Sandhills Voices from having to operate in the red
It costs money to operate Moore and Sandhills voices. We are deeply grateful for the sponsorship of Bradford Wealth Management and for those listeners who answer the call each time we do a fundraiser. Unfortunately, since we don’t EVER charge for our content, but pay for all of our own subscription services, our domain, our databases, and FOIA request costs when charged ourselves, we do operate at a loss most months. That’s not even taking into consideration all of the unpaid hours of work that go into providing our independent journalism to the Moore & Sandhills area.
Having said that, we have decided to do a raffle to help raise funds to keep Moore & Sandhills Voices and Country Coffee Chats with Cheryl up and running through the rest of the year. Raffle tickets will cost $5. The prize package being offered has a value of approximately $150.
Prizes being raffled:
Gift Cards - $25 Amazon & $25 Outback Steakhouse (retail value of $50)
Calgon Gift Bath Set - Includes 30z Calgon Bubble Bath Lavender and Honey, Calgon Lavender Honey Bath Beads Pack of two 30 OZ each, Lavender & Honey Moisturizing Bath Soak Fizzies Bombs, 8 count (retail value $35)
Nezzoe Wall/Shower mounted steam resistant & 360 degree rotating mirror for shaving or makeup with razor holders (retail value $15)
Bath & Body Works White Barn Fresh Balsam scented candle made with essential oils (retail value $25)
Official Moore & Sandhills Voices “Don’t Say You Weren’t Warned” t-shirt size XL (retail value $25)
Pick Your Podcast - Raffle winner will get to choose the subject of an entire Country Coffee Chats With Cheryl podcast on Spotify (no retail value)
¼ of all money raised from this raffle will go to the Father’s House Closet Ministry in Robbins, NC to support their Thanksgiving Blessings Bag drive. Last year, they provided 50 families in Moore County turkeys and all the fixings for Thanksgiving Dinner. They hope to surpass that number this year.
