Let’s start with this beautiful OU100K, a five-string Oscar Schmidt tenor ukulele in Koa wood with a cut away and pick-up. It comes with a great hard case, too. Raise your hand if you’d like to go home with this beautiful instrument! Donated by Oscar Schmidt.


Oscar Schmidt has also donated a lovely concert ukulele, the OU5.


And the third contribution from Oscar Schmidt is this fun UO2 ukulele.


KoAloha is donated this beautiful soprano to our festival! The KOALOHA SOPRANO 2016 (KSM-00, 16611) is a lovely instrument you’ll want to add to your collection. It features an all-Hawaiian koa body, genuine Mahogany CNC shaped neck, and a buffed high-gloss finish. And it comes with a case!


Ohana has provided this lovely little concert ukulele for our drawing. The CK-70WG Ukulele sports a solid spruce top with willow back and sides, geared tuners, Aquila strings, with a gloss finish. It comes with a Ohana Deluxe Bag so you can take it home safely! They are also donating some fun items like caps, mugs, and the bags our attendees will all get to keep their materials in at Las Cruces UkeFest.


Jumpin’ Jim Beloff has donated a couple of his handy Daily Ukulele To Go books for our drawing, too. Never be without your favorite songs to play!


LCU gift basket

Las Cruces Ukes member Ginny donated this Amahi C-01 ukulele and talented fellow member Marie painted it to represent Las Cruces and New Mexico! This prize includes a gift basket donated by members of the Las Cruces Ukes, the hosts of the Las Cruces UkeFest. The basket includes a hand-made ukulele strap made by LCU member Laura, a copy of “The Ukulele Handbook,” a Las Cruces Ukes T-shirt, a cute little sign, and lot of delicious goodies from local company Heart of the Desert!

Las Cruces bag (1)

Instructor extraordinaire Heidi Swedberg made this lovely bag with her own two hands! It doesn’t come with the contents, but they give you an idea of what you can put in it after you win it!

Daniel's Red Chile Beans Crock Pot mix

Oh, yum! Daniel Ward is donating a bag of his amazing Chimayo bean mix. You put it in a crock pot, add water and a whole orange, let it simmer, then enjoy a delicious pot of beans!


Danielle Ate The Sandwich, one of our instructors, is donating four of her CDs and a fun ukulele sticker!

Check out this beauty, donated by A Real Man in Mesilla! It is embroidered front and back with ukuleles. We have a men’s medium, but you may be able to exchange it for a larger size if you win and it doesn’t fit!


Kala has generous donated three ukuleles for us, well, actually two ukuleles and this fun Guitarlele! The Guitarlele is a hybrid between a guitar and ukulele, its six strings tuned like a guitar in standard tuning with a capo on the fifth fret—A-D-G-C-E-A. The reserved style of the Mahogany makes for a simple, classic look. Fits All Kala Tenor Hard Cases & Deluxe Gig Bags.


Kala also donated this beautiful Pacific Walnut tenor ukulele. Want it? We do!


The final Kala donation is a fun Waterman (we don’t know what color yet, but they’re all fun!). Play it anywhere!


Anahi has just come through with a lovely addition to our drawing. The UK210C is part of their mahogany series, is concert sized, and features Aquila Nylgut strings, sealed guitar style tuners, a deluxe padded bag, and dressed fretboard and frets.
