Welcome to RAFFLE-MANIA 2024!

We have exciting news about our premier raffle items for the 2024 Alumni Banquet! We have not one, but TWO amazing items that could be yours!  We also have news about the purchase of raffle tickets. Anyone, in any location, can be part of RAFFLE-MANIA through on-line ticket purchase! SVEAA volunteers will be selling tickets later this summer at the Tioga State Bank in Spencer Friday, June 28, Saturday June 29, and Wednesday, July 10.  Both raffle items will be on display at those times.

Raffle Item #1 – Original Oil Landscape Painting
Fall – Nichols Pond
By local artist, Faye E. Crance

Faye E. Crance, a New York State Finger Lakes artist and life-long Spencer resident, is a prolific painter in oils and other mediums. Much of her work features pastoral landscapes in the Spencer-Van Etten area. Locally, one of Faye’s most notable works is the large mural of the Spencer area that resides in the lobby of the Tioga State Bank, Spencer branch. Her work is represented in collections throughout the United States.

The framed piece measures 33 ¼” x 26 ¾”; unframed 30” x 24”. This landscape features an early autumn view from Nichols Pond and will add a nostalgic touch of home for the lucky winner.


Raffle Item #2 – Custom Quilt

This beautiful custom quilt was pieced with love and generously donated as one of the two premier raffle items for our 2024 Alumni Banquet. This long-arm machine quilted sampler consists of 12 unique blocks. Batik fabrics in vibrant shades of blue, purple and green are certain to create sweet dreams for the lucky winner.

The quilt measures 70” x 56” and is the perfect size as a coverlet or as a cozy throw.
