Club 365 Can Make You A Winner
The Sky is the limit with Arts Council year-long daily giveaways
Back in mid-summer, we told you about Club 365, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council’s answer to its COVIDaffected Christmas in the Sky. Since then, volunteers have been busy collecting auction items, lining up sponsors and putting together an impressive array of prizes that should tempt almost everyone.
Beginning Dec. 12, and continuing every day for 365 days, hence the name, a winner will be drawn on KTAL NBC 6. Club members have an opportunity each day to win, up to 10 separate times throughout the year.
To participate, all you have to do is buy a membership for $365. Event Chair Heidi Kallenberg said you can also purchase additional chances to win for only $25 each, and the memberships are on sale now.
“The membership is just a dollar a day. We even have a payment plan. You can pay it out in 10 months, so you can support the arts even if you don’t have $365 to pay upfront. We want everyone to get to participate and be able to support their community.”
As an added incentive, if you purchase a membership before Dec. 1, you can win a Hilton Staycation at the downtown hotel. It is a two-night prize with lunch or dinner and in-room movies. Kallenberg said winning the staycation will not count against your eligibility to win the daily prizes.
“We have almost 500 prizes as of last week,” Kallenberg said. “The Shreveport community, the businesses and the folks that live here have come out in full force in support of the arts.” That enthusiasm has created an extensive – and growing – list of prizes. You can see the latest goodies available by going to https://www.joinclub365.com/prizes.
Here are some examples of what you could win.
Chef Blake Jackson will donate an alligator or pig cookout for a group of 10 people. SRAC will provide a $300 Brookshire’s Gift Card and a case of wine or beer. Chianti’s is providing five $100 gift cards.
How about having 10 folks over for dinner at Central ArtStation, or your home if you prefer, and having Neil Johnson telling stories about his new book while his wife, Chef Cindy Johnson, makes one of her famous meals?
Other fabulous meal opportunities include a tequila dinner at El Cabo Verde for Dia de los Muertos, Gibbons Steakhouse, Grub Burger Bar, monthly dinner for two at Fat Calf Brasserie, a three-course meal for eight by Melissa Brannan, a year-long coffee adventure with Peter Lyons, Cane’s Chicken for a year, seasonal fruit from Santa Maria produce, date night for a year at Taziki’s, dinner for two a month at Twisted Root, and that’s only a few.
Also, check out the local businesses that are providing wine and spirits for some lucky winner.
Or perhaps your cup of tea is Coca-Cola products. You could be the winner of soft drinks and water for a year.
And it’s not just food and drink, according to Kallenberg. “We have jewelry from Sid Potts, McCary’s, Lee Michaels and Louisiana Coin Exchange in our drawing every single month.
“We have televisions from Dave Bushnell every single month – a giant television,” she said.
For the ladies looking for a little pampering, Dr. Lindsey Pennington will be providing treatments. Also up for grabs are gift certificates from ArkLaTex Dermatology and facials from Spa Envy.
The purpose of the project is to fund SRAC’s community activities in the 10 parishes it serves. ArtBreak, artspace, Shreveport Commons and ongoing programs in the Caddo Commons Park are just a few of the many projects and events the arts council creates and runs throughout the year. Club 365 will help make those projects happen, according to Kallenberg.
“Keeping the arts in our city is incredibly important. Without it, our city really would not be the same. (Club 365) is an exciting way to have fun while supporting an organization that is essential to our city.”
