2018 Race Fountain Raffle
Custom Copper Fountain and Sugar Kettle Raffle benefitting Susan G. Komen® Baton Rouge
Drawing to be held at 11:30 a.m. on March 3, 2018 at the Komen Baton Rouge Race for the Cure® in Downtown Baton Rouge
Waterfall Forge in Prairieville, LA has created and donated a one-of-a-kind copper fountain and fiberglass sugar kettle to help raise funds for the mission of Komen Baton Rouge.
Coppersmith Buddy Holmes contacted the Affiliate in October 2011 and said his daughter, Ginger who had just turned 40 years old, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer after her first mammogram.
“Because of the pride I have for my daughter and her fight against breast cancer, I want to help other women and families who are coping with this disease,” said Buddy. The fountain, which retails for $2000, is a garden masterpiece with a Louisiana twist: a heron, water plants and a classic reproduction of a Louisiana sugar kettle.
Cost: $3 per ticket.
How: After purchasing an online ticket your name will be added to the drawing.
Delivery: Pick up or delivery will be arranged if winner is an area resident; if winner is outside of local area, shipping will be provided by the Affiliate.
Info: Tickets can be purchased online through 4 p.m. on March 2, and on March 3 until 10:45 a.m. at Race site.
Tickets can also be purchased directly at the Affiliate, 6120 Perkins Road, Suite 300, Baton Rouge, LA 70808. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 225-615-8740.
