During the event, attendees receive 25 tickets with their $10 paid admission for the chance of winning more than 150 “themed’ baskets donated by Glens Falls Hospital volunteers, employees and local businesses and community members. Additional tickets may be purchased at $5 for 25 tickets. Baskets stocked with goodies appealing to all tastes and interests include gardening, pets, gourmet food and fishing. Basket winners must be present to win.

In addition to the baskets, participants can also enter a special raffle. The Guild will raffle a Canon Digital Camera Package.
