Over the past four weeks, since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the coastal regions of New York and New Jersey, we have all seen extraordinary outpourings of generosity and kindness in almost every conceivable form. From those with carpentry & construction skills, to food trucks to healthcare providers, it’s been a time of people being their best.

One of the ways we are contributing at the YinOva Center is through a raffle. Over the next two weeks you can try your luck at winning some really cool prizes and contributing to a really good cause at the same time. All proceeds from the YinOva Raffle – along with those from our benefit this Sunday – will go to NYCares and their Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Here’s how it works….


The list of prizes from the YinOva team and some of our generous friends is below. Tickets are sold in groups of 5. You can put all of your tickets in for a specific prize that you really want, or you can spread them out among different prizes.

Tickets are priced at 5 for $20 Dollars. Additional books of 5 tickets are $15.
Tickets are available at The YinOva Center at 74 East 11th Street, just off Broadway.
If you cant make it in between now and December 11th, just give us a call and we’ll put your tickets aside.

Thanks for you support.
