Calling all Calgary Folks – Check THIS Raffle Out:

The Alberta Playwrights’ Network (APN) has an awesome raffle going on right now (draw is on Sept 8th). It’s called the “Year of Entertainment” raffle and the winning prize contains over 40 passes, admissions, tours, theatre tickets, sports tickets valued at over $4000.00.

Click here to read the (rather mammoth) list of prizes!

The tickets are $20 each and only 500 tickets will be sold. I bought a bunch of tickets from the APN to sell for them, so if you would like to buy a ticket from me, please e-mail me through Pink Gazelle and let me know how many tickets you would like, how you are going to pay for them (e-transfer is best since I live in BC) and your mailing address so I can mail you your ticket/s.

Use of Raffle Proceeds by APN

The aim of the “Year of Entertainment” raffle is to provide much needed funding to APN so they can continue to provide meaningful programming for all playwrights and to expand their offering so that their members can get the most out of the organization.

About the APN

Alberta Playwrights’ Network exists to nurture Albertan playwrights and provide support for the development of their plays. APN promotes the province’s playwrights and plays to the theatre community, while building and fostering a network of playwrights through education, advocacy, and outreach.

My connection to the APN

As a playwright, I have been a member of the Alberta Playwright’s Network for more than 15 years. They have been – and continue to be – an invaluable resource to me helping me developing my play script, Saviour.

Here’s a funny blog of mine that gives you an idea of just how important the APN is to playwrights 🙂

Thank you & good luck!
