Giving back to the community...
Each month we offer a raffle to raise money and awareness for local organizations that we think are doing great things in Western North Carolina. There are so many wonderful organizations in Asheville, and this feels like a way we can contribute to more than a handful.
The Mary Benson house is a local non-profit, offering long-term residential substance use disorder treatment for pregnant and parenting mothers. Cisco Pilates goes a few times a year to teach Pilates to the women at MBH.
About The Raffle
The raffle prize is a private Pilates lesson and a gift certificate or donated service or item from a different local business each month.
Tickets are $1 each, $5 for 6, or $10 for 13. After purchase, you are assigned numbers affiliated with how many tickets you bought, and we'll draw a number from a hat. The drawing will be on the 1st day of the next month. You can purchase tickets here or in person. We will cover the credit card fee if paying with a card.
