Ibanez Jam Pack acoustic guitar outfit, retail price $249.99
Same guitar personally autographed by Easton Corbin, priceless (to borrow a line from a credit card commercial).
A comparable guitar signed by Easton brought over $600 at Haven Hospice’s Fall Event earlier this month. But this guitar can be won by purchasing a raffle ticket for as little as $2.
To help fund the Fanning Springs Chamber of Commerce’s 23rd Annual Festival of Lights and Lighted Boat Parade, the chamber is raffling this guitar along with several other prizes. The Ibanez guitar was donated to the Fanning Springs Chamber by Dixie Music Center. Store owners, Bob and Dotti Leichner, had Easton sign the guitar at his Lake City appearance this past August. Mr. Corbin was happy to oblige as he is long-time friends with the Leichners – it was at their store that this internationally renowned C&W recording star got his start in the music business by studying with the late Peewee Melton.
The drawing for this instrument will be at the Festival of Lights on Saturday Dec. 10. Raffle tickets are only $2 each, or four for $5. Tickets are available at Dixie Music Center, or at any Fanning Springs Chamber event, including the day of the drawing at the festival. Winner need not be present to win.
Other raffle prizes at this time include a beautiful fish wall decoration donated by A Point of View in Fanning Springs, two end tables and a coffee table donated by Bob Kerr, and six overnight passes for area campgrounds donated by Barb Locke. Other prizes are expected to be added before the festival.
Other events on the calendar for the Fanning Springs Chamber include a fish fry on Friday Nov. 4 to be held at Bell Springs, located at Florida St. and Stephen Foster in the town of Fanning Springs, at 5p.m.. They will also hold a yard sale on Saturday Nov. 12 at the parking lot of the Bear’s Den on US 19 in Fanning Springs. All proceeds go toward funding this year’s festival.
