The 6th Annual Summer Hoot, August 24-26, 2018, is a down home, all-ages community music festival with a wonderful fundraising RAFFLE! 

The festival and raffle raise money for The Ashokan Center where thousands of lucky kids and adults connect with nature, history and the arts each year. Bus-loads of youngsters see a bright canopy of stars and commune with the trees and tadpoles at Ashokan's outdoor educational programs. Adults find a respite from their daily grind when dance shoe meets dance floor or finger meets banjo at Ashokan's Music & Dance Camps.

YOUR SUPPORT helps this magical place keep going strong. Thank you for buying raffle tickets!  Good luck!

The drawing date is Monday August 27th. The lucky winners will be notified by email/phone - you do not have to be present to win! The first winner chooses the prize they prefer. The second winner chooses their preference of the remaining prizes, and so on. 

The Prizes

  • SHAR Violin Bow

    VALUED AT $600 donated by Shar Violins! You've worked long and hard to develop your skills and you have a repertoire of advanced techniques. You know what you want to express in your playing. Now, here is the perfect partner that feels your every impulse and responds in-kind. After three years of painstaking development and countless professional trials and tests, the new PRESTO® Impulse is born. Meticulous attention to every detail assures that the PRESTO® Impulse stands ready to accurately reproduce your every nuance, and nothing more. PRESTO® bows are only made with aerospace-grade fibers and resins. The engineering process guarantees longevity by eliminating "creep," a flaw in carbon-fiber manufacture that can warp a bow or diminish camber over time. All bows are thoroughly inspected, meaning only bows with the best craftsmanship are sent to our customers. Splendid tracking ability, superb control and a warm tone allow you to keep your mind, and your heart, on your performance.
