Hyde offers chance to win $10,000; Total of $12,000 to be awarded

Tickets are now on sale for The Hyde Collection’s “Louis Hyde Whitney $10K Giveaway”, one of the Museum’s largest annual fundraising efforts.

Annually, only 350 tickets for the raffle are sold at $100 each. The special reception and drawing will be held at The Hyde Collection on Friday, December 4, 2009 from 6:30-8PM and purchase of a raffle ticket entitles the bearer and one guest to attend the event. Ticket holders need not be present to win.

The Grand Prize is $10,000. In addition, a second place prize of $1,000 and two third place prizes of $500 each will be awarded at the drawing.

According to Hyde Executive Director David F. Setford, “Louis Whitney was a strong advocate of The Hyde Collection and this annual event allows us to carry forward his legacy of support.”

Scoville Jewelers, sponsor of the fundraiser, will hold a “Second Chance Giveaway” for all $10k ticket holders who do not win a prize at The Hyde event. Non-winning ticket stubs must be dropped off at Scoville’s downtown Glens Falls location no later than Sunday, December 13, 2009 at 1 pm, when a drawing will be held for a $500 Scoville Jewelers gift certificate.

All proceeds will support exhibitions and educational programming at the Museum. Those wishing to purchase a ticket may do so at the Museum Store, 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls or by calling 518-792-1761, ext. 23.
