Benefit Raffles
We have not 1, but 2, great items to raffle this year!

  • A beautiful art quilt, custom-made for Women Swimmin’ by Sarah Demo. The quilt commemorates the first 10 years of Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare and is the inspiration behind this year’s logo and poster design.

  • A stand-up paddleboard package, donated by Puddledockers. The package includes a Doyle stand-up paddleboard, a paddle by Werner, a life jacket by Astral Designs, a Seattle Sport hip back made just for paddleboarding, and a Klean Kanteen.

Tickets for either raffle are $5 each or a bundle of 5 tickets for $20. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event and in advance at Hospicare, Puddledockers or from a Women Swimmin’ volunteer. Raffle tickets for the quilt raffle can be purchased online by clicking "Buy a Raffle Ticket” in the sidebar menu.
