Hancock County Ride for a Cure Kayak Raffle
The 3rd annual Hancock County Ride for a Cure has set their 2023 date, October 1st.
A long way off, sure. But fundraising is about to get underway, with a great surprise auction item.
Ride for a Cure was the recipient of an ocean kayak donated from Old Town Canoe
That’s Ken Stinson and Cindi Lemery both from Old Town Canoe, bookending Brandy Marchetti from Ride for a Cure, and the donated kayak.
Old Town Canoe donated the 11 ft Ocean Venus Kayak to Ride for a Cure for the 2023 season.
The kayak is going to be raffled. Raffle tickets are $10 or 3 for $25. Imagine owing this sweet kayak for only $10. You can purchase a ticket or 3 here and get information on the Ride for the Cure’s Facebook page
Also tickets will be on sale at the Eastern Maine Sportsmen Expo, which takes place March 10th to the 12th, and at the Ellsworth Rotary craft fair on March 25th. The raffle draw for the kayak will be on April 4th.
Brandy Marchetti talked about the event and cause
This event was started, and I was thinking it would be something small, but it continues to grow every year. I am feeling beyond humbled and blessed for the continued support of this event
All money raised from the kayak raffle and the entire Ride for the Cure event will go to the Beth C Wright Cancer Resource Center, Christine B Foundation and Team Hailey Hugs. All Maine based cancer locations. All the money stays local. They are all fighting the increased costs to operate in addition to the uptick of cancer diagnosis post Covid.
Brandy says they hope to raise between $12 and $15 thousand.
And it begins with the Kayak raffle.
