Mega-Raffle Fundraiser for Amy!

Mega-Raffle Fundraiser for Amy!

We are raffling off a dozen prizes (or more) in order to raise money for an extremely worthy cause.

Meet Amy

Amy is only 33 years old. She is a single mother of 2 beautiful children, 7 and 9 years old. Amy was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer. It is stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The cancer is in her lymph nodes, as well as her liver and other organs. She has undergone over 8 chemo treatments to date and is fighting like hell to beat this disease. She's a wig-wearing superhero as far as we're concerned

Due to the pain, sickness, medical appts and procedures, Amy is unable to work and only has a few weeks of disability remaining before her job no longer will hold a position for her. Her disability will run out around the time this raffle ends. With more chemo scheduled, it's unlikely that she will be able to return to work. Donations are to help with bills and for her to spend time with her children building memories while she is still able to. She is putting up one hell of a fight and we would love to make sure financial struggle doesn't keep her from spending time with her young kids.

The Rules

  • There will be multiple prizes for the raffle. One drawing will be done for each prize.
  • Prizes will be the choice of the winners, beginning with the first winner. For example, the first winner gets their choice of one prize on the list, leaving the remaining prizes for subsequent winners. The second winner will get their choice of one prize remaining after first winner's choice is removed from the pool. The third winner gets their choice of one prize remaining after the first two winners' prizes are removed from the pool of prizes. And so on, until all prizes have been chosen and claimed.
  • There will be one prize for each of the chosen winners. (Edit: "Winners" meaning winning entry. A person holding multiple entries could win more than one prize.)
  • No substitutions on prizes, as several are donated by anonymous donors or the makers.
  • Winners will be drawn randomly by Fiddleback Outpost within 3 days of the event ending on Friday, July 7, 2017.
  • Winners will be notified via email. Once prizes are claimed and chosen, winners will be announced on our social media channels and here on our website.
