Tons of Amazing Raffle Prizes Can Be Yours at Wednesday’s Fourteen Hills’ Release Party

When Fourteen Hills Literary Magazine throws a party, we like to get the whole community involved. One of our favorite parts about the biannual Fourteen Hills release parties, aside from the wonderful readers who come to share their work, is the exciting assortment of businesses who donate items for the Fourteen Hills release party raffles. This year we have an impressive selection of prizes including Clown Cabaret tickets, indie bookstore gift certificates, sock monkeys, sake, and so much more. Here's a list of participating businesses and the items they donated. We hope everyone who shops, eats, or drinks at these businesses will give them a big thank you for supporting independent literature next time you visit.

If you haven't bought your raffle tickets yet you can still buy them at the San Francisco Motorcycle Club the night of the party (Dec. 16th @ 7pm). Raffle tickets will be sold for three for $5 or one for $2. All the proceeds go to Fourteen Hills Press to help keep our non-profit journal publishing and partying for years to come!
