12 Days of Prizes to support the Arts

It’s that time again! The third annual ARTvent!. Beginning December 1st for a total of 12 consecutive days, the Arts Council will be drawing for 12 prize packages to be given away to 12 lucky daily winners. There are over $25,000 in prizes with each prize package worth over at least $900.

Prize packages include limited edition artwork, a special multi-course catered dinner with entertainment, flowers for a year, several getaways, a beautiful 20-inch strand of pearls, theatre tickets, dinner gift cards, a living room furniture group, 2023 ULM football tickets, Clementine Hunter collectible dinnerware and much more. Each prize package has been thoughtfully curated by the Arts Council and their gracious donors.

“ARTvent began during COVID because of our inability to host our regular fundraising events.” Explained Barry Stevens, President of the Arts Council. “It proved to be such a success that we’ve continued it. People love to support the arts in our region and they enjoy a chance at winning great prizes.”

Tickets are only $50 each and are on sale now. They are available on-line at www.nelaarts.org as well as from any Arts Council board member or through the Arts Council office by calling 318.397.6717 or 318.397.6754. A full list of daily prizes, donors, and sponsors can be found on the Arts Council website. You must be 21 or older to participate.

Proceeds from the raffle benefit the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, its programs, and services.
