The Behind the Scenes raffle is back for LDI, with a grand prize of a $7,500 dream vacation.

A gift certificate with a premier travel agent will give one winner the opportunity to take an incredible vacation. Previous winners have fulfilled dreams to visit Machu Picchu and Hawaii. Second prize in the raffle is a $1,500 Amazon gift card and third prize is a $1,000 Amazon gift card. Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100 and are available at the PLASA Cocktail and Awards Reception and throughout the show at the Behind the Scenes booth #1145. Winners need not be present.

The BTS Boutique, now also online, will be in booth #1145 and will feature the 2011 BTS holiday cards created by leading designers Andrew Hefer, Seth Jackson, Derek McLane, and Jim Youmans. These unique cards are a great way to send holiday wishes and are available in packs of 10 for $20.

Note cards by Christine Jones and Andrew Hefter are great for opening nights and other special occasions. T-shirts, tanks, polos, and earrings, all featuring the charity’s symbolic ghostlight, are available in the BTS Boutique and make great holiday gifts.
