Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. has partnered with another Virginia Main Street community to raffle off trading getaway packages for two, the local non-profit organization announced in a news release this week.

In an effort to boost local tourism and Culpeper businesses, CRI and Gloucester Main Street Association are partnering for the first-ever Trading Main Streets. Each community will offer a fall weekend getaway package for two.

As Virginians look forward to the end of the COVID-19 lockdown measures, a fall getaway package could be a great way to celebrate, CRI said in the release.

Raffle tickets are $20 per ticket, or three for $50.
