The Win, Win Situation

Updated: May 20, 2019

September 24th, 2018



Everyone loves to win, you can't deny it. So what's to lose? Nouveau Central is holding two Raffle Giveaways, where you could win some amazing handmade products, gift certificates and even a table set from local North Carolina businesses. 100% of the proceeds raised will be donated to Hurricane Florence Relief. Find out what you could win below.



Less than a week ago Hurricane Florence made her way out of the Carolina's. When she hit land she was a Category 2, down from a Category 4. But don't let that fool you into thinking she wasn't catastrophic. North Carolina is still dealing with massive floods, power outages, property and personal loss, clean up, rebuilding and so much more. If you live in the Carolina's it's hard to not think about those affected. We all know at least one person who went through the powerful, slow moving storm. Many of my friends on the coast are still living in that nightmare. They are now in the damage control stage; rebuilding the place that they love and call home. So much water has filled our beautiful state and left it's mark in towns like New Bern, Wilmington and Lumberton. Let's come together in this time of need for our friends, families, and neighbors in the Carolina's and raise money and awareness, until the needs of those affected are met.



What You Could Win:

  1. A Curated Gift Basket Full of North Carolina Products from Artisans and Businesses

  2. Handmade "Florence" Table & Chair Set by Bobby Simons Designs



How to Enter:

Purchase your raffle ticket in our "Events" page (or click affiliated links above), where 100% of the proceeds raised will be donated to those affected by the hurricane. The Gift Basket, retailing over $550, only costs $5 to enter and the Handmade Table & Chair Set, retailing over $1250, costs $25 to enter.
