THE RAFFLE TO WIN A JOCO CRUISE CABIN HAS OFFICIALLY ENDED.
The winner has been contacted, and we’re pleased to announce that Kelly has accepted the cabin and will be joining JoCo Cruise 2019!
Each ticket gets you ONE entry in our contest to win a Balcony Cabin for two people on JoCo Cruise 2019, which is officially SOLD OUT! This may be your only chance to get on what promises to be a truly epic experience.
The cruise sails out of Fort Lauderdale, FL from March 9th to 16th. Once again, JoCo Cruise will occupy the ENTIRE BOAT, and there will be much rejoicing over karaoke, dance parties, panel discussions, cocktail hours, a tabletop game room, and much more.
If you want multiple entries, purchase multiple tickets - you can enter as many times as you'd like! After the fundraiser, JoCo staff will randomly select one winning ticket from among all entries purchased. The winner will be selected and notified by June 22nd.
All proceeds go to Worldbuilders, a geek-centered nonprofit supporting humanitarian efforts worldwide.
