I have six four packs of tickets to give away to the Junior League of Raleigh's largest fundraiser - A Shopping Spree!

This four-day shopping extravaganza showcases regional and national exhibitors offering the latest in fashion and home decor trends, unique gifts and holiday merchandise. It takes place Nov. 3 to Nov. 6 at the Raleigh Convention Center in downtown Raleigh. More than 11,000 people shopped the event last year!

Proceeds from A Shopping Spree! benefit the Junior League of Raleigh and its programs. Since 2000, the Junior League of Raleigh’s trained volunteers have donated more than $1.6 million and more than 206,000 volunteer hours to programs and projects that impact youth in the community such as SAFEchild, Brentwood Boys & Girls Club, StepUP Ministry, Helping Horse, Heritage Park Community Center and AventWest Childrens’ Mentoring.

You can purchase $10 tickets, which will allow you to shop anytime during the regular shopping hours. There also are several special ticketed events with special shopping times, including a preview gala on Nov. 2; early morning private shopping hours on Nov. 3; a Friday night fashion event on Nov. 4; and early morning shopping hours on Nov. 5.

For details and tickets, click here.

I have six sets of four of the $10 tickets to give away. The lucky winners will be able to use the tickets to shop at any time during regular shopping hours.

What do you need to do to win? One or both of the following:

1. Like the WRAL Go Ask Mom Facebook page.

    I have done NO shopping. We are really looking at essentials for the kids this year since we just bought a Sony Bravia LED tv (55") and an XBOX 360 with KINECT bundle in September. Got to stay in budget and be economical!!

    I have done some of the shopping for my 8 grandkids. Trying to get finished a little earlier this year. Buying for 8 is challenging.

    The Shopping Spree is when my friend and I start!! We have been doing this for several years since we became neighbors and we love it! We both have grandkids now and always look for something special for them and the shopping spree is where to find it!

    I finished a painting for my grandmother and am working on ornaments for the rest of the family. As far as shopping, I am working on shopping lists and looking through the sale papers for ideas to plan my budget.
