Small Print: Donations must be made within the time frame specified to receive that particular Artwork Treasure Hunt Clue. BSC will not see the email addresses for anonymous donors, and will, therefore, be unable to email those donors a clue. Clues will be emailed by BSC’s Development Manager, Elaine Leahy from elaine@bluestarcontemporary.org; donors should check their email settings to ensure timely arrival. The Clue email may be later than the time specified should there be any technological failings or delays in reporting; BSC will email all known donors with updates should there be time changes. Donors may make multiple donations throughout the day to receive clues for the various artworks. Donations before or after March 22 are ineligible for the Artwork Treasure Hunt Clues. The Clues will lead donors to a Certificate to redeem the artwork at Blue Star Contemporary. (We don’t want to leave artwork outside!) BSC will verify the donation and the certificate upon redemption.
Donations before March 22 through March 22 at 11:59 pm are eligible for a chance to win Adriana Corral’s Bones. BSC will not see the email addresses for anonymous donors, and will, therefore, be unable to email those donors about the raffle. A donation is considered one entry. Donors may make multiple donations and receive multiple entries. Need not be present to win the raffle.
