Among the raffle items are 100 works of art from local artists, UBCO faculty and students. One ticket for the event will admit two people and will also guarantee winning at least one piece of artwork.

UBCO will distribute the funds raised from the event and ten per cent of the proceeds will go towards a local charity.

The university offers a visual arts degree in the Okanagan that helps teach students about artistic media and visual culture.
