How Much Does It Cost To Go To Clarion?

We are in the final days of the Butler Scholarship fundraising prize drawing! We have raised a lot of money! We need to raise more! Why? Well…

In order to go to Clarion in San Diego, a student must come up with $4,957. In order to go to Clarion West in Seattle, a student must come up with $3,200.

Every year the scholarship pays for one student to go to each. Thus, many thousands of dollars are needed. Thus, this fundraiser.

There was no specific goal in mind when we started this project. I wanted to raise at least $1,000, which is a little over what I raised for the scholarship last year. Now my goal is to raise enough to cover tuition for one student. It would be awesome to be able to cover the Clarion West tuition. But how much more awesome if we could raise enough to cover the Clarion Diego tuition? It’s possible.

If you’ve already bought tickets, thanks! Would you mind spreading the word far and wide? If you haven’t already bought a ticket, please do! Or, if you just want to donate, you can do that as well.

It costs a lot to go to Clarion. In this way, you can help offset that financial burden and support a new writer.

    I went and tried to buy some tickets, but although the Drawing page says they’ll take PayPal payment for tickets, the only option I can find is Google checkout. I’d really rather use PayPal — am I missing a button or something? Thanks for any assistance you can give.

    We were using paypal but apparently using their service for a drawing or raffle is against the TOS and they sent us a nastygram. We had to switch to Google Checkout yesterday to avoid the PayPal account getting canceled. It sucks, i know.
