Holiday Marketplace Raffle
Saturday, December 2, 2023
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM,
Drawing starts promptly at 2:15 PM
We hope you enjoyed the Ocean Ridge Charities Association (ORCA) Annual Arts & Crafts Fair at the Nature Pavilion last weekend. Our neighbors had such beautiful items for sale, with all vendor fees supporting 'Warm Homes, Warm Hearts'.
Your next chance to possibly take home some other incredible items is Saturday, December 2 at the ORCA Holiday Marketplace Raffle. It will also be held at the Nature Pavilion, rain or shine.
Our creative and talented neighbors have generously donated a wide array of spectacular crafts (woodworking, quilting, painting and so much more)… along with baked goods, gift cards, themed baskets, etc. We will be raffling off dozens of gorgeous items. Again all proceeds will go to 'Warm Homes, Warm Hearts'.
Here's how it works. Buy your raffle tickets (10 tickets for $20) at the event, or skip the lines and purchase them early by contacting Kathy Sanchez at 203-400-5023 or Cathy Benton at 410-279-4612.
Then come to the Nature Pavilion on Saturday, December 2 between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM to see these amazing donations and use your raffle tickets to take a chance at winning the item(s) of your choice. We will begin drawing the winning tickets at 2:15 PM, including the winning ticket for the holiday quilt. You do not need to be present to win, but being there for the drawing is half the fun.
Questions? AND… still time to donate an item to the raffle!

THANK YOU OCEAN RIDGE RESIDENTS FOR OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL HOLIDAY SEASON EVER!

Ocean Ridge Charities Association (ORCA), along with the Social Activities Committee, is proud to sponsor the “Annual Kick off to the Holidays in Ocean Ridge!” The following events contribute towards these efforts: the Holiday Craft’s Fair, the Holiday Market Place, Luminaries and the Holiday House Tour. The proceeds of these events go to BEMC’s Warm Homes, Warm Hearts program, which DOUBLES our contribution to Brunswick County residents! That’s $21,000 to assist in providing heat and electric to those in need.
Due to the Corporate Sponsor Program, the generosity of our neighbors, an Allstate Grant, the memorial fund and other contributions, ORCA has donated an additional $20,000 in the name of Ocean Ridge residents to the following Brunswick County Charities this month:
Brunswick Family Assistance, Brunswick Community College Foundation, Carousel Center, Habitat, Hope Harbor, Literacy Council, Providence Home, Shallotte Lions, Toy Run and Waves4Kids.
A special THANK YOU to all our volunteers, event organizers and ORCA board members for all of the tireless work they put in to make all of this happen. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
