A note from MANNA FoodBank about the Table for Three Raffle in the midst of COVID-19:
We know what an unprecedented time this is for our community and our country. We’re especially thinking about our Culinary Partners, local restaurant friends, and the impact this is having on their businesses, employees, and families. We feel it’s only prudent to postpone the Table for Three Raffle until later in 2020, and will make another announcement with the new date soon.
In the meantime, we want to recognize that MANNA’s annual Table for Three Raffle is not possible without the incredible support from our Culinary Partners. Their collective generosity, through the donation of gift cards for the raffle, has helped provide over 200,000 meals per year in the 16-county area we serve in WNC. We are so grateful for these partnerships, and we’re sending strength to everyone in the culinary community.
Welcome to the fourth annual Table for Three Raffle! Table for Three is MANNA FoodBank’s partnership with Asheville’s nationally-recognized independent restaurant scene. Enter to win an incredible GRAND PRIZE: Dinner for two at 52 of the Asheville area’s top restaurants! That’s a year’s-worth of dining out.
The best part is that each ticket supports MANNA’s vital work to provide food to WNC families struggling to make ends meet. With every ticket sold, MANNA can provide enough food to feed one person a daily meal… for an entire year and MORE. That’s why we’re calling it Table for Three!
The Table for Three Raffle tickets are $104 each. This is a very deliberate ticket price: $104 is what it costs MANNA to feed one person a meal a day for more than a year, and 104 is also the number of meals the GRAND PRIZE winner receives!
Only 500 tickets will be sold.
The winner will receive gift certificates to 52 different regional restaurants. The gift certificates are transferable, so you can share them with friends and family, give them as client gifts, or, of course, use them all yourself!
Gift certificates do not include tax or gratuity, and cannot be used for alcohol. Some restaurants may limit use during holidays or special events.
According to IRS regulations, no portion of a raffle ticket purchase qualifies as a tax-deductible donation.
