Lisa Mende and I are so excited about our Grand Opening event on Wednesday. If you will be in the Charlotte area, please drop by for a glass of champagne and a studio tour!
As an extra incentive to attend, Lisa and I have put together some ah-mazing giveaways in celebration! Because we believe in “paying it forward,” we are also using this opportunity to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Can’t attend the opening? There’s no need to fret. You can enter to win these fabulous prizes whether you are with us in person or in spirit!
Here’s how it will work. For attending the opening, you’ll receive one raffle ticket. For a donation (of any size!!) to the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, you’ll receive another raffle ticket. Your donations are tax-deductible, so this is a major win-win.
Need an extra incentive to donate? For a $100 donation to Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, I’ll send you a Traci Zeller Home signature candle absolutely free. (If you are running the numbers in your head, the retail price is $38 plus shipping.)
Our studio is super-easy to find. You’ll recognize the Providence Plaza shopping center for its popular restaurants (Mezzanotte, Block and Grinder and Chipotle), shops (The Pink Hanger) and services (FlyWheel Charlotte, The Little Gym of Charlotte, and Metropolitan Ballroom). We are in the back section on the second floor, between The Little Gym and Metropolitan Ballroom. You’ll recognize us by the table full of champagne out front!
We are adding to our list of prizes every day, but here’s a sprinkling of what we have so far! A huge thank you to Taylor Burke Home for their ivory Blake Accent Table (worth $750!), to Tobi Fairley for a pair of Saint Nick Pillows in Charcoal/Daffodil (worth over $500!) and to Shark for a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Shark Rocket Ultra-Light Upright Vacuum (worth $200!).
There’s much more up our stylish sleeves, including the Pink Peony Rockbed Watergarden in Large Glass Cube by NDI (worth over $500!), several Traci Zeller pillows (worth over $150 each!) and a few prizes we can’t yet announce.
I have to tell you how much I hate raising money. Yes, Mom and Dad, I used the word “hate.” I know I’m supposed to say “intensely dislike.” I was always the kid who sold only the amount of Girl Scout cookies that my parents were willing to buy.
But the one thing I hate more than raising money? Seeing children and families suffer. I pray that, in some small way, Lisa’s and my work for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island helps to alleviate the fear, worry and stress that comes with having a child in a medically challenging situation. The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island has housed thousands of families from around the US and eighty other countries. Thank you for helping us help them.
Will you please enter to win?
If you make a $100+ donation to the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island via our donation page, and are unable to attend the grand opening, please send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can mail your Traci Zeller Home signature candle. This offer is good while supplies last, so hop on it, peeps! And please forgive the infomercial language!
