Carousel summer fundraiser drawing set for Sept. 2

To support their efforts to renovate and create a home for a vintage carousel, Friends of the Cottage Grove Carousel conducted a summer-long fundraiser, selling $5 tickets for three special keepsake items that were donated by members of the board of directors.

The items are: A San Francisco Music Box Company carousel in a glass dome display ($130 value), a wooden rocking horse for a small child or folk-art display ($189 value) and a colorful handmade quilt with a “spinning spool” pattern ($400 value).

The three winning tickets will be drawn live on KNND 1400AM at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2 by the project’s youngest volunteer, Chelsea Armstrong. Tickets will be sold through Friday, Sept. 1. Details on the drawing and photos of the items are on the Friends of the Cottage Grove Carousel Facebook page.

Anyone interested in purchasing a $5 ticket for one or all of these items is invited to call 541-915-0113.
