GREENSBORO, N.C. — Need to get away?
Then WithIt's annual fundraiser just might be the ticket. The women's leadership development organization is raffling a luxury vacation for two to the Monterey Peninsula in California.
Valued at $14,000, the trip includes first-class airfare for two, four nights in an ocean view room at Pebble Beach Lodge, three rounds of golf and/or spa visits with first priority tee times at Pebble Beach, tickets to Monterey Bay Aquarium and an American Express cash card. The winner will have one year to take the trip, which can be customized through WithIt's travel agent.
Raffle tickets are $100 each, and only 500 will be sold.
"If there's one thing every professional would love, it's a first-class getaway for two," said Stephanie Lowder, president of WithIt. "It could be a his-or-hers getaway, or two golf buddies, or two spa and shopping buddies, and the Monterey Peninsula is one of the world's finest destinations in all of these categories."
Lowder said the money raised from the raffle will help WithIt to continue developing women who are leaders in the home furnishings industry.
The drawing will be held Oct. 22 and the winner will be announced on WithIt's website. Board members are selling tickets now through the High Point Market, Oct. 16-21, for as long as they last. Tickets also can be bought online through Oct. 20 at www.withit.org.
