SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
We are less than two months away from the greatest weekend of the summer when blues fans from around the world will  gather on Chicago’s lakefront for what we consider the greatest show(s) on earth. After you enter to win these tickets, please also consider donating to our GoFundMe campaign, which will help pay the incredible musicians scheduled to play on our Street Stage June 12 – 14. You can still enter and/or win these tickets if you don’t donate, but we would really like it if you did. Check out our amazing Street Stage lineup and then…
DONATE RIGHT NOW if you love the blues as much as we do!

THE CONTEST RULES
DO NOT CHANGE the subject line of the email.
Be sure to include your email, your name, email and phone number
And please don’t enter if you don’t think you can make it to the show.

Winner will be notified no later than Sunday, April 26.

_________________________________________
OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF
We really mean only one entry per person. If you enter more than once, you will automatically be disqualified. Winners for each show will be randomly drawn from all emails received by the specified deadline. If you receive an email telling you that you have won tickets, please confirm receipt of the email within 24 hours or another winner will be drawn.

THE SMALL PRINT
Windy City Blues Society Board Members and Executive Committee Members and their families are ineligible to win. Yada yada yada…which means all other basic rules of contests apply. If you don’t win this time, there will be other opportunities.

Help Fill Our 2015 Street Stage ‘Tip Jar’

The WCBS GoFundMe campaign will not only help us pay the musicians who play on our Street Stage at the 2015 Chicago Blues Festival June 12-14 in Grant Park, it also will help us pay for the significant operational costs of the stage. If we raise more than we need for Blues Fest, the extra money will help fund our Musicians Assistance Fund and other programs. Donations are tax deductible.
