Every year, the Winterlude Committee asks the music ensembles who perform at the fundraiser to provide items for specific baskets that will get raffled off during both the afternoon and evening concerts or used for the fun balloon pop in the afternoon.

Please note that if you find it difficult to purchase items, we will gladly accept cash donations to top up baskets with items as we assemble the baskets.
