We will have a 50/50 drawing, some amazing raffles, and a great door prize, so there are plenty of ways for all attendees to win some great prizes.

Don’t forget about the additional entertainment! As an extra bonus, Michael Petit, known throughout the comedy world for his "Jokes and Strokes" will be sharing his comedic talent.
