2017 Milford Bug & Bud Includes Chance to Win a Cruise Vacation
3/22/2017 - On April 29, 2017 at this year’s Milford Bug & Bud Festival, you can come for the fun and walk away with a Caribbean cruise. Because on that day, Milford’s Mayor will choose one lucky attendee or other supporter of local nonprofit KSI to win a cruise vacation for two on Royal Caribbean International as part of KSI’s efforts to support people with disabilities in their communities.
In recent years, CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) instituted a final ruling that all services benefiting people with disabilities that are funded by Medicaid be delivered in the most community-integrated setting as possible. For many agencies serving the disability populations, this final rule has meant building greater transportation and staffing resources to accommodate more community-integrated programming. This includes KSI, a Milford, Delaware nonprofit dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities gain community employment and inclusion opportunities.
KSI started the “Cruisin’ for a Cause” Raffle as a fundraising effort to purchase additional wheelchair lift-equipped vehicles, helping more people with disabilities access community work, learning and contribution trips. KSI is selling tickets now until The Bug & Bud Festival in downtown Milford on Saturday, April 29, 2017. At 3:00 p.m. during the event, Milford Mayor Bryan Shupe will draw the winning ticket for a voucher good toward?a four-to-five night cruise for two on Royal Caribbean. With open departure and cruise destinations based on?Royal Caribbean’s available trips, the Grand Prize of an Ocean View stateroom for?two,?with a $25 excursion voucher and?all?taxes and tips included, awaits one?lucky ticket buyer. And to get the vacation of a lifetime, you only have to?spend $5 per ticket, or $20 for five chances.
Even if you don’t win the cruise for two, Second Prize receives $100?cash, and Third Place will get you?$50 cash. Tickets are on sale now, and will be available during the Bug & Bud Festival up until just before the official drawing at 3:00 p.m. And while the winners are not required to be in attendance at the drawing, the Bug & Bud Festival is a fantastic day of community fun, food and music that can’t be missed. KSI is honored to announce its cruise raffle winner during one of Delaware’s finest events.
