During the Mass Author Signing and Ice Cream Social on Friday, May 13th, the HWA will hold its “13 Books on the 13th” raffle. You will be able to purchase raffle tickets at the registration counter from the time the convention opens on Thursday until 6:00 pm on Friday. We will have thirteen containers, one representing each book involved in the raffle. You will place your ticket(s) into the container(s) of the books you wish to try and win. Write your name and cell phone number on the back of each ticket, in case you’re not present at the drawing.
The drawings will take place around 6:15 pm in the Four Square Ballroom.
All money raised during the raffle will go to fund the HWA’s Diversity Grant Program, supporting underrepresented, diverse people who have an interest in the horror writing genre, including, but not limited to writers, editors, reviewers, and library workers.
Ticket prices are: $5 for one ticket, $10 for five tickets, and $20 for ten tickets. You can purchase as many tickets as you wish. You can purchase tickets with cash or (preferred) credit/debit card.
