Time is running out to buy your ticket for the second annual Coastal Mountains Land Trust Raffle! Only 150 tickets will be sold, at $100 apiece. The winners will be drawn Tuesday, May 28.

Top prize in this one-of-a-kind raffle is an exclusive Summit Sunset Party at romantic Beech Nut. For one special night, the historic, sod-roofed house will host the winner and up to 40 friends and family, with the Land Trust providing the full party. The winner chooses between an elegant array of hors d’oeuvres or a sumptuous picnic dinner. A full beverage set-up is also supplied (state law prevents us from providing alcoholic beverages, but you can bring your own), plus a $200 gift card to Hannaford for extras, transportation up and down the hill, and invitation cards sent to all your guests. The lucky winner and the Land Trust will select the summer party date.

To enter the raffle, visit coastalmountains.org to download a ticket order form, or call 236-7091 before 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 28.

Second prize is a Breakfast by the Bay Weekend Package for two at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, which includes two nights of luxurious waterfront accommodations accompanied by lavish breakfasts at La Bella Vita, the on-site restaurant, and access to all the resort's spa facilities and amenities.

Third prize is a limited-edition Ducktrap River portfolio of three 11- by 14-inch matted platinum photographic prints by Dennis C. Shultz, including an autographed copy of the book “To Save a River” featuring natural history narratives by Scott Dickerson.

Fourth prize is a limited edition archival quality giclee photographic print of your choice by nature photographer Brian Willson (MaineSeasons.com).

And fifth prize is 30 pounds of our fresh, organic Beech Hill blueberries — enough to freeze for the year ahead or share with friends!

Proceeds from this benefit raffle will support the conservation programs of Coastal Mountains Land Trust, which works to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of western Penobscot Bay. In the past 27 years, the Land Trust has protected almost 9,200 acres, including 25 preserves featuring more than 30 miles of trails.
