This week we asked our lucky Portland Getaway raffle winners how they felt about winning such an extravagant trip worth over $1,000! Many people entered, but only one could be a winner! All of the proceeds benefit Ballet Fantastique and we are so appreciative of your support!
As you know, this basket included things like a two-night stay in the Waterfront Marriott, a wine tasting and tour for four at Seven Bridges Winery, passes for the Lan Su Chinese Gardens, Pittock Mansion, Portland Art Museum, Portland Center Stage, and many more certificates for delicious, Portland-unique restaurants and bakeries!
Here is what our winners, Susan and Karl, had to say:
Bfan: What made you decide to purchase a Portland Getaway raffle ticket?
Susan: BFan always puts together great raffle basket packages, so we buy tickets at every performance. We particularly enjoy going to Portland and thought it sounded like a fantastic gift package, as well as a great excuse to get away for a weekend!
BFan: What are you most excited about for the Portland Getaway?
Susan: We are so excited about the entire raffle package…2 nights in a nice hotel, lots of food and drink vouchers to great restaurants we are looking forward to visiting, as well as tickets to theater, gardens and museums…we will have to make more than one trip to fit it all in.
BFan: When are you planning on going?
Susan: We have yet to schedule it, but we are going as soon as we can!
Susan: We come to all of BFan’s great ballets because our daughter is an apprentice at BFan.
BFan: What did you like most about the show?
Susan: Since you know our daughter is in the show, we enjoyed watching her dance the most. In addition, the drum and koto music was fantastic (as well as all the other dancing).
