The deadline to enter early-bird drawing to win $10,000 in the Ocean Institute’s 10th annual Laguna Beach Gold Coast Raffle is quickly approaching. Participants must register by Thursday, Aug. 21 to be entered into the early-bird drawing on Friday, Sept. 5.
All early-bird entries will have a chance at the grand prize: $1 million dollars or a Laguna Beach home. The final drawing will take place Saturday, Nov. 8 at noon. The event will be held at the Ocean Institute, located at 24200 Dana Point Harbor Drive.
The final deadline to purchase raffle tickets is Thursday, Oct. 23 at 11:59 p.m. Tickets are $150 each. Proceeds benefit educational programs at the Ocean Institute.
A maximum of 21,000 tickets will be sold.
The raffle has awarded nearly $11 million in prizes since 2005. Over the last nine years, only one grand prize winner has chosen the Laguna Beach home. Each Thursday, from now until Oct. 16, 10 “gold rush” winners will be announced and awarded $1,000 for first place and $300 for each subsequent one.
