Raffle Donations are another great way to bring down the cost of advertising or earn some in-kind trade shout-outs. Almost all craft vendors donate to the Blissfest raffle and many area businesses make great deals and gifts available to Blissfest raffle ticket purchasers. Even the Blissfest throws in some great deals on weekend getaways at the Festival farmhouse and campground.
The Solar Initiative is our goal to one day produce enough electricity throughout the year from renewable sources such as Photo-voltaic Solar energy and earn full retail credit for the surplus we provide to the grid for most of the year so when the festival comes we are able to offset our very short-term and intense energy cost. A donation of $3 helps us get one Watt of Solar Energy Installed. If you make a donation of $30 to the Solar Initiative you will have helped us purchase and install 10W. A typical panel costs around $650-$800 to install. The Blissfest already has solar energy production happening so you will be adding to an already existing portfolio of renewable energy.
