The “Wish You Were Here” travel raffle was launched by the Northwoods Children’s Museum (NCM) as a major fundraiser beginning in November 2011 and culminating at the NCM Benefit Auction on August 7, 2012 at Eagle Waters Resort.
Susan West of Plover was the lucky winner of a $2,500 gift certificate from Northwoods Travel to the travel destination of her choice. “I feel so blessed to have won this prize,” said West. “I can still hardly believe that this happened to me!”
Susan is a longtime museum member and attendee along with her granddaughter Lauren. While West’s son Jared is encouraging her to go somewhere really special, Susan is considering putting together a trip so that four members of the family can go together. Susan has been to Northwoods Travel and collected brochures for travel throughout the world, including Australia/New Zealand, Europe, the Caribbean, and Alaska.
“I am so appreciative to the Northwoods Children’s Museum for affording me the chance to go anywhere,” stated West, “and also for the facility and the quality programs that are offered.”
The travel raffle was made possible through a contribution from Lynne and Ken Nimmer, longtime supporters and volunteers of the museum, and has generated over double the amount of their initial donation.
