Door Prize & Raffle:
Because we like to give you the chance to win free (local, green, and fun) stuff, we will be doing a door prize & raffle again! Each ticket purchase will automatically enter your name into a draw for a chance to win an amazing door prize. And because we love active transportation SO much, we are giving an additional door prize ticket to all attendees that have cycled to the venue.
We will also have additional raffle prizes, and tickets for those will be on sale during the event (cash only). We will announce all prizes in the weeks leading up to the event on social media, so make sure to follow LEN on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to find out what you could win! Trust us, you’ll want your name in these raffles!
Like every Green Drinks, we encourage attendees to use active transportation.
