Congratulations to our 2020 Raffle Winner and thank you to all who participated in the raffle through buying tickets. This year’s raffle was a one-of-a-kind burl bowl made from a fallen maple tree salvaged from the Crooked Creek Preserve by TILT supporter and expert craftsman Doug Drumm of Doug Drumm Creations. Thank you Doug!

On Friday, September 25th TILT staff held its long-awaited drawing in front of a live crowd of hopeful ticket-holders over Facebook Live. And the winning ticket holder was Tom Walker. Tom and his wife Mabel are long-time TILT supporters and champions of the establishment of the Otter Creek Preserve. Their generosity can also be widely felt throughout the entire North Country. Congratulations Tom!

Together, nearly $3,200 was raised that will directly support stewardship efforts on TILT’s 10 Signature Preserves. Your generosity is most appreciated, thank you.

So.... please stay tuned for the announcement of TILT’s 2021 Raffle...this new mystery piece will be sure to delight all who are conservation-minded and love the Thousand Islands!
