The raffles offered a slew of baskets and all kinds of prizes. Here they are displayed in the room reserved for prizes. But this is a small part of the table running all around the room. In the back is the bookstore, handled by the Scottsdale's Barnes & Noble.
At the start of most of the general events gathering all the attendees, the raffle was drawn. These two gentlemen are the husbands of both Conference Coordinators. They went back and forth across the crowded room to distribute the prizes to the lucky winners. Thank you so much Mr. Graham and Mr. McBright, for helping selflessly. They also provided the muscles to do the heavy lifting during the entire event.
Here are a few shots of lucky winners.
The baskets were quickly stripped of their clear wrappings and explored
This prize front and center came in a bird cage
Jordan Summer is ecstatic with her win
Gini Koch certainly bought enough tickets (the red strips spread out on the table in front of her), but she won her coveted prize... and it matches her outfit and her agent's outfit (Cherry Weiner right)
Robert F. Mager (right) is wondering what the heck his wife Eileen just won. Since I was sitting with them (left), I can tell you it's a ceramic hand to hang rings and other jewelry.
