Raffle Goodness!

We have been bowled over by the generosity of our donors this year, and you will be too when you see all the amazing raffle prizes we have! Nearly $5,000 worth of services, stays, and products!!

That said, we would love to show our donors that their big hearts will be met by your raffle ticket purchases! Remember, every dollar you spend on raffle tickets goes DIRECTLY to COTS!  The more tickets you buy, the better chance you have to win, and the more we give to COTS during this important time of year.

Not only that, COTS has had a donor step forward who will match our donation dollar for dollar, so when you buy raffle tickets, your donation will automatically be doubled!  It's a win-win for everyone!

Raffle tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 and will be for sale at the door and the front table throughout the event!

Meet the Vendors: Stella's Table

Their matriarch, Stella Rosa Carassali, stood as an obvious symbol for Stella's Table's adventure into its boutique of foods that stemmed from family traditions. The traditions and memories, the laughter and tears, all began and ended at the table. No matter the celebration, they gathered around the table with family and friends and partook in delicious food, drank good wine and made an everlasting impact on their friends and family.  Inspire your own traditions with their simple, delicious, homemade or handcrafted products that lead to long-lasting memories.

 Meet the Vendors: Devi Life

Devi is a culmination of a 10-year journey that took us from San Francisco to Jaipur via Bali. It's based on a love of traveling, textiles, and a fascination with the world that surrounds us.

The goal is to elevate an everyday experience to a luxurious sensory one while supporting artisans, embracing traditional practices, and staying true to our sustainability commitments.
