This year’s XHX raffle is a not to be missed opportunity to get your hands on some one of a kind hummingbird themed items, all hand-made by talented GCBO volunteers.

Tickets are $10 each, or 6 for $50, and can be purchased either at the festival, or in advance at our office at 299 Hwy 332 W in Lake Jackson, TX. The drawing will be held at the conclusion of the final day of the festival, and winners do not need to be present to win. All proceeds support GCBO’s mission to protect birds and their habitats around the Gulf of Mexico and beyond. Cash only, please.

First prize is this intricate cross-stitch of a Ruby throated hummingbird feeding at a Hibiscus, painstakingly sewn by Kay Lookingbill. Already framed and ready to grace your home!

Second prize is a set of bags beautifully hand-sewn by Virginia Taroni.

And third prize is this lovely jewelry box decorated by Jackie Hicks.
