in the Majestic Theater’s 28th Annual Classic Raffle


Our First Prize in our 28th annual classic raffle is this beautiful 1962 Corvette, the last year for the C-1's. This Corvette has a rare automatic transmission—a feature that we have been asked for years to find. 14,531 Corvettes that were manufactured in 1962, and you could win this 1 of 988 that have the very rare factory power windows. In Roman Red with a Black interior, this is a snazzy combination. There's a removable hardtop, all original bonding strips, spinner hubcaps, and new tires. The engine is a later model 350 V8 NOM with the original mileage of 59,972.

Appraised at $62,000.

Our Second Prize is a 100th anniversary Road King in Gunmetal Pearl paint with silver stripes—you don't get any more classic than that look with the Harley roar! It has a 1450cc, air cooled, fuel injected, V-twin engine and a 5-speed transmission. There is also a passenger back rest. This was a one-owner motorcycle and was meticulously maintained with original mileage of 33,456.

Appraised at $9,000.

Locally-produced professional live theater since 1997

Before it was a live theater, local residents may remember West Springfield's Majestic Theater as a movie house. It has since been renovated and reimagined to bring live performances to the Pioneer Valley area, giving local performance and technical artists the opportunity to thrive.

Every season at the Majestic consists of five productions (including at least one musical) featuring local actors. In addition to the subscription season, the summer includes children's theater, concerts, plays, open mic nights, and improvisational comedy shows.

Recently named the best place to see live theater in the Pioneer Valley in the Valley Advocate Readers' Poll, the Majestic continues to offer great theater thanks to the support and generosity of its 4200+ subscribers. The Classic Raffle is the Majestic's primary fundraiser and has been an annual tradition for 27 years.
