2016 Lichty Guitar Raffle for LEAF
Each year one lucky soul wins a handcrafted Lichty Guitar (valued at over $4000) by way of the annual Lichty guitar raffle for LEAF Community Arts. The raffle runs from April to the October LEAF Festival where the winning ticket is drawn. Ticket sales are limited to 500 and they only cost $10. We love this win-win: 100% of the proceeds go toward LEAF programming so you are supporting a great cause while at the same time increasing your odds of winning a Lichty with every ticket you buy. And the tickets are only $10! Buy one or buy a bunch and you might be playing this Lichty before you know it.
