The Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce introduces the 2017 Apple Fest Pin Program & Raffle. Take home a piece of Apple Fest by purchasing a commemorative keepsake pin. A great way to support and remember the festival, and a great gift for family or friends! Purchase your $5 pin and enter the drawing for a chance to win $1000 cash! The winning ticket will be drawn at 10 a.m. on  Friday, October 20 at the Chamber office. You need not be present to win.

Two thousand pins are available for pre-sale at the following locations: Castle Farms, Central Drug Store, Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce, Charlevoix State Bank, That French Place, and The Lake House. The remaining 500 pins will be sold during the festival.

Your pin comes with a raffle entry form, which must be filled out and turned into the Chamber office no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 19. Chamber office hours are Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
