Kennett Sq. ‘Shop and Dine’ raffle helps library, local business

Friends of Kennett Library Board members Carolyn Mostyn, Carol Yetter and Annette Bowers (L to R) are ready to sell tickets at the Kennett Library!

The 2nd Annual community Shop & Dine Raffle, sponsored by the Friends of Kennett Library, is in full swing! With each ticket purchased, there are 31 chances to win $100 (two $50 gift certificates) to local shops and restaurants.

Raffle tickets are available for purchase beginning May 1st through the end of July at the Kennett Library, 216 E. State Street, Kennett Square. One ticket for $10; four for $30; eight for $50; and 20 for $100. The Friends will also have stands set up at events around the Kennett Community, including the Kennett Farmers Market, Third Thursdays in Kennett, and a few other pop-ups locations.

Every day in July, we will draw a raffle ticket to win $100 in local gift certificates. So, with 31 days in July, you will have 31 Chances to Win!!

“The beauty of this raffle is that the gift certificates are being purchased with funds donated by our generous sponsors,” explained Annette Bowers, our FRIENDS of Kennett Library Board Chair. Instead of asking for donations, we purchase the gift certificates from our local restaurants and businesses. It’s a great way to support both the merchant community and the Library. A true win-win for everyone!!
