Win art, jewelry, entertainment packages, and more while supporting the education programs at Diana Wortham Theatre through the annual Youth Education Scholarship (Y.E.S.) Fund Raffle. The Y.E.S. Fund allows thousands of students, regardless of their economic circumstances, to attend shows at DWT for free. It also awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors pursuing a career in performing arts.

While the raffle is held in conjunction with the Free Planet Radio (Friday, May 5) and Susan Werner (Saturday, May 6) performances, the general public is encouraged to purchase raffle tickets both days during the box office's regular hours of 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Each day will feature different raffle items!


Patrons attending the performances should arrive early to check out the items and purchase raffle tickets. Please note items will be ready for viewing by 7:00 p.m. each evening prior to the performances. Tickets for raffle items will be available through the box office. You do not need be a ticketholder for the performances to participate in the raffle. Raffle tickets purchased during the day at the box office will be applied to your chosen prize packages for that day.

Each night's winners will be posted in the lobby at the end of the performance that evening. Winners can take their prize home that night, or pick it up at a later time. Winners do not need to be present to receive their prizes.
