Putting yourself in a position to win a Jag or Mercedes benefits the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra in the SSO's 17th Annual Luxury Raffle

"You've got to believe you're going to be lucky," reminds Fortescue Whittle Hopkins, of Roanoke, Va.

Indeed, being prepared to win a fun car is a meritorious state. Especially when the luck may emanate from the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra's 17th annual Luxury Raffle benefit.

Serious enticements await those who carpool into this important fund raiser:

Grand Prize: Winner's Choice of 2006 Jaguar X-Type or Mercedes-Benz C230 or Volvo S40 valued at up to $37,500

1st Prize: Shopping Spree at Sid Potts Jewelry. Value: $2,500

2nd Prize: Fresh Cut Flowers Monthly for One Year from Rose Neath Flower Shops - Value: $600

3rd Prize: 52 Weeks of Car Washes at the Auto Mall Car Wash. - Value: $520

Tickets are $100 each. But only 2006 tickets will be sold, at best.

Drawing: Sat, Mar 4, 2006 following the MasterSeries Concert with the Three Phantoms. You need not be present to win.

Will the winner be responsible for all applicable taxes on prizes? Yes. Small price for such luck, right?

Buy tickets online at or by calling 318-227-8863.

Thanks, Debbie. All of us who've been bound by the traditional guidelines for the press release deserve the opportunity to shilly shally - when we become the publisher.

Reminds me of one of my fave quotes: I believe in freedom of speech as long as you say the right thing.

I believe Noma Fowler-Sandlin said that.
