Now Accepting Raffle Donations!

We are now collecting donations for our famous raffle at this year's retreat. Again this year, we are focusing on fewer, but higher quality prizes. Please contact Marc L. at if you would like to donate to this year's raffle.

The raffle promises to be an exciting event with our fabulous new hostess, Mizz Honey Bucket!

The raffle is our largest source of income, and proceeds help keep registration costs low (it costs more than $90/person to put on the retreat!), provide scholarships, and fund general operating expenses.
