Cure for the Rainy Day Blues–Great Escapes Raffle

Our decidedly damp climate has us all day-dreaming about getting out of the city for a change of scenery and a bit of adventure and the Arts Club is here to help! We’ve launched the Great Escapes Raffle as part of our spring fundraising efforts, with some top-notch getaways to hit the mountains, have a city break, or find the sun, with destinations close to home and state-side.

Tickets for the raffle are only $20 for one ticket, or $50 for three tickets. Buy Tickets or call the Box Office at 604.687.1644. Top prizes will be drawn on June 15, with early bird draws on April 19 and May 31.

Francis Ford Coppola WineryThe Grand Prize is a decadent weekend for two in California Wine Country, with flights to San Francisco, car rental and two nights at the opulent Four Sisters Hotel in Healdsburg. Explore Sonoma and Napa Valley and spend a day at the Francis Ford Coppola Winery – lounge poolside, tour the vineyard, and sample the wines. The prize includes a $100 gift card for lunch and wine at the winery.

Palm DesertAlso up for grabs is a trip for two to Palm Desert, considered a golfer’ paradise, with over 100 courses to choose from, the region is also a mecca for mountain bikers and hikers wanting to explore the nearby Joshua Tree Park, and the town is not shy on shopping opportunities and excellent eateries.
