Hi <NAME>,

I am participating in the Bristol Sessions Super Raffle this year. I am doing so because I think it is for a great cause (the Birthplace of Country Music Museum) and because it is an exciting raffle with $250,000 in excellent prizes. I have been asked if I would help sell the tickets this year – so I thought I would email you to see if you might have any interest.

The Cause: The Birthplace of Country Music Museum is a 24,000 sq. ft. state-of-the art museum with 5 theaters and lots of interactive exhibits. I have attached a page that includes some statements by some well-known people regarding the 1927 Bristol Sessions which the Museum celebrates. Here is what documentarian Ken Burns had to say about the Museum – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSMyWbO4SI8. This year the Museum had to be closed for 3 months due to Covid-19, and has lost all of its scheduled bus tours for the entire year. This makes a successful raffle very important. You can learn more about the Museum at www.birthplaceofcountrymusic.org.

The Raffle: The raffle, which takes place on September 13, 2020 and which will be steamed live online, involves a maximum of 5000 tickets sold at $100 per ticket (or Buy 10 Get 1 free). Each ticket has two numbers from 0 to 9999. Four digit numbers are then drawn (using lotto type equipment) every 5 minutes for 4 hours – 49 prizes awarded including vehicles, electronics, vacations, cash and more. Over $250,000 in prizes will be awarded. A rack card is attached showing all the prizes, and here is a short 30 second video about the raffle – https://youtu.be/czOgpubVdnQ. The raffle has its own website https://bristolsessionssuperraffle.org where you can see all the rules and other information (and where the raffle will be streamed in addition to Facebook).

If you would be willing to buy a ticket or tickets you can do so by going to the following website https://bristolsessionssuperraffle.org/ticket/ and using the online form. If you do that please fill in my name in the “Sales Agent” blank on the form. I would really appreciate that and BCM will recognize me for my help.

Thanks for considering this.
