HOW TO ENTER: To enter, go to www.nationalhempassociation.org between March 15, 2017 and April 29, 2017, click on Donate, and follow the instructions. The minimum donation for a chance to win the package is $50. A donation of $100 earns 3 chances to win. The donator will receive an email confirmation of their donation.
THE PRIZE PACKAGE: All donations of $50 or more will receive an single annual individual membership (meaning it expires after one year). Current members will have $50 applied to their next membership renewal. The winner’s package includes domestic airfare (non-domestic travelers will be required to pay airfare to and from the United States) for two to San Francisco (SFO) from a US-based airport (arriving Friday, May 5, 2017, departing May 7, 2017), two nights lodging (double occupancy) in a wonderful hotel near the Fillmore, two backstage passes to the Willie Nelson & Family concert on May 6, 2017 that will take the winner and guest backstage and a guitar signed by Willie Nelson. The winner will be met at the concert by Mike Bowman, Chairman of the NHA, who will chaperone the winner and guest backstage. The winner will be required to show a valid ID before backstage passes are awarded. The package does not include ground transportation, meals, or incidentals. Flights will be booked from the nearest major US airport to the winner’s location. Final value of package will be determined after airfare and lodging are purchased; the estimated value is approximately $3,000. Odds of winning depend upon the number of donations received during the entry period. The winner will be determined by a random drawing.
