One Raffle – Three Great Prizes – Ends Today!

You can spend a week in St. John for as little as $10!

Hello everyone, and happy Giving Tuesday! Today I would like to tell you about an amazing raffle that’s happening right now. But time is of the essence on this one, because it ends today at 3 p.m. EST. The great part about that, however, is that the winners will be pulled today at 4 p.m. EST. So you will know pretty quickly if you need to start shopping for airfare!

Love City Strong’s annual Island Gems raffle features three amazing prizes. Each prize has its own ticket, so you get to choose which prize you’d like to be entered for. Here are the details on each of the three prizes…

The Emerald Ticket

Cruz On Inn is located directly on Great Cruz Bay.

The Emerald Ticket features a one-week stay at Cruz On Inn, a 5 bedroom luxury villa in Chocolate Hole, as well as a discounted rental from Slim Man’s Jeep Rental. Activities include a cabana day at Lovango Resort & Beach Club and a half-day charter with Rock ‘n Rolla Charters, plus gift certificates to Sam & Jack’s Deli, High Tide Seafood Bar & Grill, Morgan’s Mango, Tap Room Brewtique, and Lulee St John.

The Sapphire Ticket

The cottages at Cinnamon Bay are located steps from this beautiful, sandy beach.

For the adventurous vacationer, the Sapphire Ticket package offers a one-week stay in a cottage at Cinnamon Bay, a dinghy rental from Wharfside Watersports, an outing on Salt Deck, and gift certificates to Trunk Bay Concession, Dazey Drive In, The Windmill Bar, Golden Hour, and Virginabis.

The Ruby Ticket

The view from Wharfside Hotel

If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, the Ruby Ticket package is for you. Featuring a five-night stay at Wharfside Village Hotel, a sunset sail with Cruz Bay Watersports, a day at Caneel Bay Beach Club, plus gift certificates to The Wine Shop, The Terrace, The Tap Room, Freebird, and The Little Things.

Raffle tickets start at just $10. You can get 10 entries for $10, 30 entries for $25, 75 entries for $50, 200 entries for $100 or 1,500 for $500.

All of the funds raised from this raffle will support the Resilient Housing Initiative, which was originally launched in 2018 in response to damages from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. In partnership with other organizations, St. John businesses, and local contractors, this program has completed 37 full rebuilds here on St. John, which is pretty incredible. The COVID-19 pandemic put even more strain on resources, and we saw prices of shipping and materials rise. In response to the changing needs of the island, Love City Strong expanded its program to include smaller repair projects. The objective is to mitigate damage from future impacts and make homes more safe and accessible for residents.

Again, this raffle ends today at 3 p.m. EST, so go ahead and purchase your tickets! You can do so using the link below:

    I was going to enter the raffle, and I clicked on enter now. It was an link to accompany that collects information and sends out spam, and now I have given my information to some spam crap. I’m not sure if there’s anyway that you can avoid having such awful misleading ads, but this is a nightmare.
