The Palos Verdes Art Center is continuing it’s annual Best House Raffle for the 11th year. This year’s dream prize is the most dramatic one of it’s kind. The year’s top prize will be a $2,000,000 Terranea Seaside Vacation Home Villa or $1,000,000 in cash.
For the past ten years, the Palos Verdes Art Center has given away over $12,000,000 in cash and prizes. The money is being raised to continue to fund the development of a new PVAC to support the growing community needs. The Art Center is available for local Palos Verdes homes owners to take classes, purchase hand crafted items and visit local artists showings in the galleries. It also hosts the Art At Your Fingertips training center which provides the Palos Verdes Peninsula School District with their art programs. Art Center has also been used to teach art projects to at-risk youth and foster children.
The donation for a raffle ticket is still $150, and they are once again offering a special drawing for buyers of 2 or more tickets which are purchased at the same time and have the same names. This special drawing will take place on February 20, 2013, at 5:00 p.m., at Terranea Resort, 100 Terranea Way, Rancho Palos Verdes.
