First reply from the 2017 winner: WOW!
Follow-up: I just wanted to expand upon my earlier email–this is an immense honor, and beyond words, I feel so blessed to follow in her footsteps. As someone who tries every day to carry on her legacy, this raffle win means SO MUCH to me. I just read Bob Musil’s description of staying at the cottage. I’d like to write a similar testimonial for your website. Let me know if I can do or say anything else to promote your good work. And thank you!!!
From RCHA: So much encouragement and grace came in with the ticket sales. We only regret we couldn’t have more winners! We are truly thrilled for Raina!
