Just when you thought it was safe to assume that you'd never own an HK prototype or the first retired editions, HOP is hosting a charity fundraiser that will dash those thoughts of permanent empty spaces in your collection.
Do you have any "blanks" in your collection? Many collectors cannot find some of the rarest of all Harmony Kingdom pieces to complete their collection. HOP is proud to announce a stupendous opportunity to the collectors ... a chance to acquire some rarities and help the HOP charities at the same time. Are you ready for HOP's "Fill in the Blanks" fundraiser?
Perhaps you might imagine filling in those "blanks" in your collection with the first HK retirements only in your wildest dreams. Have you wondered if you'd ever find those special pieces? Even the most "die hard"HK collectors still have spaces for these gems - Back Scratch, Who'd A Thought, Let's Do Lunch, and Untouchable. Only a few lucky collectors have them all and now one lucky winner can too!
Would you like to buy a raffle ticket for the chance to win Untouchable, Let's Do Lunch, or Who'd a Thought and even, yes ......Back Scratch(!)? You know how sought after these pieces are, with the secondary market value of up to $5,000 on just Back Scratch alone! One lucky collector, for the price of a $10 raffle ticket, will help out a good cause and win the "raffle-of-a-lifetime"!
Here's how it works. All Royal Watch members are eligible but limited to one entry per RW membership. If you want to participate, submit $10 with your Royal Watch number to the address below. You'll see a last minute reminder in the Summer QC. The lucky winner will be chosen on September 4, 2000.
INSTRUCTIONS: Make your check payable to one of the following charities:
American Diabetes Association
World Wildlife Fund
And then mail it with your Royal Watch number to:
HK House of Peers
P O Box 430
Warrenville, IL 60555-0430
All entries must be received by August 23rd to participate in the drawing. The winning ticket will be drawn on Labor Day, September 4, 2000.
Good luck to all and cheers to the winner!
In a drawing held at the Harmony Ball Co. headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, Jacqueline C. Molsick, who goes by Jackii, was the winner of the "Fill in the Blanks" Raffle of a Lifetime! Jackii, from Palm Harbor, Florida was the lucky recipient of Back Scratch, Let's Do Lunch, Untouchable, and Who'd A Thought. Jackii's $10 donation goes to one of the three charities selected for support by HOP. With over $6,000 raised, the American Diabetes Association ($1,720), Make-a-Wish Foundation ($1,805), and the World Wildlife Federation ($2,590) are also winners. Jackii, who works for the City of Clearwater, has been collecting HK for about 3-years. An animal lover, her first piece was "In Fine Feather".
