The dream of owning a home in Santa Barbara or winning $1 million in cash is alive once again in the 2005 2nd Annual Santa Barbara Million Dollar Home or Million Dollar Cash Raffle.

Those who enter early will have multiple chances to win and an opportunity to win $50,000 in additional cash prizes.

“Our raffle was so successful last year that we could not find any reason not to repeat it” said Danny Scott, Board Member of the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum. “Once again we will reward those who buy tickets early with multiple chances to win. Those who buy a ticket before the close of business on May 10, 2005, will be entered into 3 separate drawings to win cash prizes in addition to the Grand Prize drawing. We anticipate selling out even earlier than we did last year, so don’t delay.”

The Santa Barbara home, built in 2002, enjoys ocean and mountain views, features a living room with fireplace and vaulted ceilings, spacious eat-in kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a private patio for outdoor entertaining. If the Grand Prize Winner selects the home they will also receive a $25,000 gift certificate that is redeemable at Santa Barbara’s Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center for furnishing and home decor. The gift certificate plus the home have an estimated valued of $1 million.

SBCAF Board member Danny Scott commented, “we’re working to make fundraising a performance art. As required, we’ve registered our event with the Attorney General’s office of California, and are delighted that we will once again create a millionaire or a new Santa Barbara homeowner at the final Grand Prize Drawing.”
