Raffle 2019

Raffle fundraiser

The Glacier Symphony started the Raffle Fundraiser in the year 2000 and it has grown to be a major fundraiser that helps to support the “Youth Music Experience” youth education program including free tickets for students to Masterworks Concerts as well as other family concerts and programming that is family friendly.

The raffle begins in late June of each year and the drawing is held in December. The prize is generally a trip valued at $8,000. If you don’t like the destination the GS will award you a $5,000 cash alternative and you can treat yourself to a vacation or some other treat you have been waiting for to make life more fun or easier (or fund that college education!).

Raffle Tickets are available from GS Board members and by calling the GS office. Please be advised that state law in Montana requires that raffle tickets be sold to persons in Montana at the time of the purchase.

The GS Raffle originally began as a car raffle and has evolved into a raffle with more prizes and more chances to win.
