Damariscotta — “Support local business now and remember to dream the future” is the two-pronged focus of Heartwood Theater’s Annual Online Raffle. The odds are insanely good, and there is still some time to purchase tickets by July 10. For full details and purchase info, visit Heartwood’s raffle website

Featured in this year's online raffle are $500 shopping sprees to 50 local businesses, who generously support Heartwood each season as advertisers and sponsors, and a six-night vacation in County Galway, Ireland, with $1,000 immediate spending money.

Here’s how the “buy local” part works. Heartwood purchased two $50 gift certificates from 50 local businesses and grouped them into five unique $500 shopping sprees. Each winner (ten in all) will receive ten gift certificates for $50, to ten different businesses—a $500 value.

The five categories from which buyers may choose include: Restaurants; Coffee Shop / Bakery / Quick Stops; Home & Auto Projects; Jewelry / Clothing / Flowers; Specialty Shops / Boating / Salon. Two winners will be drawn for each local shopping spree.

As for future travel dreams, Heartwood included the people’s most popular annual destination choice: Early Victorian "Currarevagh House," nestled in County Galway, Ireland, where the owners have generously offered to leave an open window for booking. No expiration date... dream now, travel when you’re ready! The single winner of this property will also receive $1,000 immediate cash.

Tickets are $50 each and may be directly purchased online by visiting Heartwood's raffle website, or by mailing a form (available from the website) and check directly to Heartwood. Tickets will be on sale through Friday, July 10, and the 11 winning names will be drawn on Saturday, July 11, at 10 a.m. Email or phone 563-1373 with questions.

Support Heartwood. Support local business. And dream.
