Grand Raffle

NICWA holds a grand raffle at our annual conference. Dollars raised through this activity go directly to our programming, with this year’s goal being $10,000.

Last year, NICWA was thrilled to offer an all-inclusive grand prize raffle trip to Las Vegas. This trip for two included Alaska Airlines tickets, a three-day, two-night stay at Caesars Palace, passes to see Mat Franco at the LINQ, and a ride on the High Roller Ferris Wheel.

But there was more…
A purchase of raffle tickets also bought conference attendees more than just the opportunity to win a trip for two to Las Vegas. Thanks to Eaglesun Systems Products, an iPad with Livescribe Pen and portfolio was raffled off during the banquet dinner program, the premier evening event during the conference.

And this year is no different!
NICWA is currently working on a grand raffle trip to New Orleans. Keep checking back for more details!

Membership Raffle
NICWA holds a number of member-only raffles—to reward our current members for their feedback and participation in membership activities and to encourage conference participants to become new members or upgrade their membership onsite during conference).

Last year, NICWA was thrilled to offer baby items, Native jewelry and art items, resulting in our most successful year of onsite member participation and recruitment ever!

This year…
NICWA is working to finalize a Disneyland holiday package for four people! We currently have donations of tickets for park entry and accommodation, and would love to include food and drink items or gift cards to complement this package.
